What a joke! The joke of all jokes is that Sosan, the Chinese sage, was knocking at the door of my consciousness. These mystics are too much. You can never know at what moment they will start knocking at your doors. You are making love to your girlfriend, and Sosan comes and starts knocking.

The tree moves in you, the sun moves in the tree, the ocean moves into the tree, you move in the child and this goes on The breath that is within you will be in me a little later.
