Return from the Himalayas, Part 4

It is not enough to participate in life; true happiness occurs when you "heart"icipate. 

(Note:  This message comes not from the mountaintop directly, but through a series of seemingly random items, individuals, & events--such as a 14th century Mongolian invasion, a phony Taoist priest, the simple yet painstaking combination of sugar, flour, eggs, & water, & a 20th century labor-saving device--by way of a fortune cookie, whose sweet, crispy, twisted shape resembled a broken cinerary vase bearing a facetious deity's face, along with lucky numbers 4, 6, 14, 18, 31, 36.)
