Tao of the Day  
One piece of advice that Don Juan gave to Carlos Castanada was to do everything as if it were the only thing in the world that mattered, while all the time knowing that it doesn't matter at all.
- Pema Chödrön, When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times

It doesn't matter at all
Who you are or where you're going to
You can figure it out
It doesn't matter at all
Who you are or what you're going through
You can make it through somehow

Throw it to the wind
Yeah, let it all begin
I see you've made it this far

Towards the end of college, I deduced anything I do is basically pointless, that the way to avoid suffering is to be cool with everything.

Unfortunately, that led to complete passivization on my part. Nowadays I still know everything is pointless, but I have my fun in an active, constructive way. Having "Let's see how far we can take this" for a motto leads to an interesting life.
