Synchronicities like this make life feel more fateful, like there is a purpose to what occurs in the universe… There is no need for nihilism, if only I could encourage others to tap into this profound feeling of “Yugen” – an awareness of the universe that triggers emotional responses too deep and mysterious for words…

When seeking guidance, don’t ever listen to the tiny-hearted. Be kind to them, heap them with blessings, cajole them, but do not follow their advice.
If you have ever been called defiant, incorrigible, forward, cunning, insurgent, unruly, rebellious, you’re on the right track.
