And he explained, so absurdly simply, that if there’s nothing you can do about something, then you do nothing. And in that moment, the feeling of injustice, the frustration, it was lifted, it was gone, there was nothing to do. I realized I’d made it up, I’d made it up that it was an injustice, I’d made up the frustration, it was all a story. And it’s the same with the past, you can’t change the past, there’s no need to heal it, it’s only a story that you’ve created. All you can do is let go of the story. You can’t change yourself—all you can do is let go of the story of who you are, let go of the character that you’ve created from fear.

"I do believe in an everyday sort of magic - the inexplicable connectedness we sometimes experience with places, people, works of art and the like; the eerie appropriateness of moments of synchronicity; the whispered voice, the hidden presence, when we think we’re alone.”
