Tao of the Day  
To be single-minded is to be unmindful.
Mindfulness is keeping many different things in mind and observing their relations and proportions.

To conquer is to be careless.
Carefulness is holding oneself and one's acts in appropriate relation and proportion to the many other beings and intentions.

To take is to be joyless.
Joyfulness is accepting the given, which cannot be earned by mindfulness nor deserved by carefulness.

Isn't that timely. As always, thank you. These always really seem to make my day.
