1) For a full and happy life, always choose love and connection 2) Our scale (our size, our lifespan, even the unaided capacity of our perceptual organs) causes us to fundamentally misapprehend the universe and our place in it. The only solution is endless curiosity and limitless humility- and the enhancement of our capacities to see and hear and feel. 3) No matter what happens, you can always take a deep breath and start again.
