And its importance is only on the surface.

Returning is renewal. 199 more words

Both marked by the same brilliant purple at the wing.

Daily Tao / 105 - Compassion

You see that same face on everyone you meet.

Daily Tao / 104 - Readiness

A knife keeps its edge
Only with honing and proper cutting.

A sage’s virtue is awareness.

This life is so competitive and challenging that one must remain in constant readiness for the problems and conflicts that come with each day.

Daily Tao / 102 - Awarness

Outer eyes
Cannot see themselves.
The inner eye
Is its own reflection

Daily Tao / 101 - Concentration

Imagination, song, the soaring spirit.

Join them to know the mystery of totality.

The mind, if focused, can become the most powerful force we know.
