Battles are waged each day within the mind, the struggle between right and wrong, yes and no. Sometimes the victor is not always the most desirable. Why this happens, we do not understand, for no one knows all. However, if we have the teachings of the Tao planted firmly within, we can be assured that we have a most excellent chance of the outcome being to our liking and benefit. We should not seek to conquer others, but to conquer ourselves. That is the greatest victory of all.
