Here’s another installment in a series of emails that took place between Michael and one of his senior students beginning the Summer of 2009. May you find the exchange interesting and enriching.

Student: If someone said to you, You must have more patience with the Universe than I do, what would be your response?
Michael: As usual my response would depend a great deal on context but Id most likely just smile. I might ask something like, What other option might I have? If they were able to hear it, I might suggest that we are the Universe and that the Universe is, as weve discussed, simply One Song of patience. As long as any of us continues to see ourselves as disconnected and apart from this great chorus, well never know peace. Stop the war with yourself and everything else. Then Id see if they wanted to go get some pizza and beer.
