  • You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking
    backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your
    future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.
    This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.

    Destiny circles like a red-tailed hawk, like a premonition, like a great storm.
    Destiny is like a green silk scarf floating across the moon.

    Destiny has Attitude with a capital “A,” wears snakeskin cowboy boots, barges in
    when you least expect her.

    Destiny is Lady Gaga bursting into flames, rolling her eyes, the sequined supergirl.
    Destiny is like a far away train in the night, crossing Siberia, all that snow.

    Destiny doesn’t wait, hands you your tickets for that flight to Mars, packs for you.
    Destiny keeps you honest, rides a pale horse, dances like a Dervish.

    Destiny loves you and you and you. Destiny is the one you can never forget.
    Destiny will sail across a wide sea to find the end of history, no journey too difficult.

    Destiny is your Muse, your calling, your inevitability, like the Sahara, like God.
