This week, Brezsny tells the Gemini:

Is the universe inherently friendly to human beings? The answer's got to either be yes or no. It can't be in between. Whatever you might be inclined to believe, you've got to agree that there's no way to know which is true with absolute certainty. So then isn't it stupid and self-destructive to live your life as if the universe is unfriendly? Doing so tends to cast a pall over everything. But if on the other hand you proceed on the hypothesis that the universe is friendly, you're inclined to interpret everything that occurs as a gift, however challenging it may be to figure out its purpose at first. Your assignment this week, should you choose to accept it, is to live as if the latter theory were true.

I try to do this. I'll remember that this is an especially good week for it. Sometimes things like this mean "brace for impact". We'll see whether that's true this week :-)
