A myriad of events
Are randomly born into the world
One after another.
Uninterrupted encounters
Occur in succession in life
As if by coincidence or chance.

And yet,
Such a way of seeing things
Is only a superficial perception.

When we have a perspective
That goes beyond the material,
We cannot help but think about
The inevitability and reason of those events.
We gradually come to see
The invisible connections between those encounters.

And a true entity of things
Reveals itself.
