in reply to the amazing fortune cookie meditation.

Master Po and his student approached the babbling brook. As they came to the rocky promonitory overlooking the water, he stretched out his, signaling the student to stop. Master Po gazed out at the cranes, flying slowly over the water, gliding with outstretched wings, effortlessly picking up and slooping down as it best suited them. "What is the highest form of resolve?" Master Po asked. The student was quick to reply: "To be unfettering; to be unwieldy with respect to your goal." "Is that all that is required?" Master Po asked, discerningly. "No, " the student replied. "Then what?" Master Po asked, "is required?" The student pondered, and then found the solution. "You must have a goal. One that is a worthy and noble goal -- a goal which can serve to ever sharpen your skill and further your resolve. One that can bring you into accord with the universe."

Master Po smiled, and looked beyond toward the cranes readying themselves for a feast of fish in the waters below.
