Blooming: Teachings of a Woo Master. "When I was in my late thirties, I began to think deeply about my life and the kind of person I had become. I knew I had a good life, yet I felt as if I were riding on an emotional roller coaster. Some days, I felt happy, creative, and optimistic. Other days, I fell into self-doubt, self-criticism, and sometimes the darkness of despair. . . .I longed to change, because I knew there had to be a better way to live. We all have moments like this when we're ripe for change. Our inner struggles and emotional pain may have reached a point where necessity requires it or, even when life is going well, we may feel a compelling urge to create something better."

"Sometimes, circumstances present opportunities for change that are so obvious and compelling, we can't pass them up. For example, we may accidently meet someone who, with ease and gentleness, shows us that there is a better way to live, then reveals how to do it. This is a story of such a time, when fate led me to an old man, a gardener, who became my teacher and friend. In the short time of three months, he taught me about the sources of my personal suffering and how to cultivate change in myself to eventually bloom as a person. He told me, 'We were born to bloom'."
