Yugen Say That Again

Yugen- An awareness of the universe that triggers feelings too deep and mysterious for words. (Japanese)

"To watch the sun sink behind a flower-clad hill, to wonder on and on in a huge forest without thought of return, to stand upon the shore and gaze after a boat that disappears behind distant islands, to contemplate the flight of wild geese seen and lost among the clouds."
         -Alan Watts
