Why be careful when you can care without choosing to care just as you breathe without deciding to breathe?

Be careful for nothing and at the same time be fully human.
But where are you to start?
Until...and in the meantime, it is appropriate for you to be careful, to even make a conscious, deliberate and calculating decision to consider diligently the following:
Be careful how you entertain strangers. But how can you entertain strangers when you are a stranger to yourself? Become your own best friend.
Be careful not to remove another person's landmarks. To do so is to violate that person and be a vile intruder.
Be careful what you say about a person behind his back because when you face that person you become a mirror that reflects not only what you said about him but who you are.
Be careful not to let your appearance devalue and inauthenticate you or conceal your beauty.
Be careful not to allow your beliefs to define or deny you the gift of the meaning that is inherent in present experience.
Now you may ask: Didn't you begin this admonishment by saying, "Be careful for nothing." True. But it is not until a person has achieved a certain level of maturity, i.e., being mature enough to be directed by love that he can refuse to be careful and at the same time be humane.
Beyond "being careful for.." is "being careful for nothing" while simultaneously fulfilling the demand of situational appropriateness as directed by love. Love has no need to be careful, guarded or calculating. It is the nature of love to be kind, compassionate, honest, open and even divine. Love loves.
The health dividend derived from being careful for nothing is manifested in living that is free of stress, guilt and anxiety.
Being careful for nothing means being and doing what you were created to be and do without thinking about it.
Dare be careful for nothing and fully human as you were created to be.
