Fortune gives a broken man a token jewel of lapis lazuli, fashioned into a tiny sphere, to be worn captured by a wire in an orbit which pierces the left ear transcendentally, to signify to him that one should listen to the Earth with the ear closest to the heart. Because gifts of fortune do not come without pain, knowledge that no pain is intolerable is a gift of fortune in itself.

Inspiration leads her man to nature, with the sanctified fragrance of Chandra, under his protection. They stand fast where water falls, and drink from mountain streams, tasting purity, momentarily clearing the palette, preparing them to subdue the intensity to come downriver. Jasmine Tea, Bergamot Tea, Star Anise with Peppercorn, Grapefruit, Cardamom, Tangerine with Cream, and so forth.

And a blue lotus marks the door to the temple. Admission is granted without knocking. The temple is within. Should one keep this to one's self?
