(48)We Encounter People At The Right Time And Place For A Reason 逢うべき人には必ず逢える。一瞬早すぎず、一瞬遅すぎないときに。

I have met a lot of people from many countries of the world, such as the United States, the Philippines, Morocco, Mexico, Portugal, Canada, Turkey, Holland (Sorry, I cannot name all of them), and so on. They include many English tutors who conduct lessons on a certain English conversation platform.

That platform has a system where I can choose teachers available from the list and enjoy talking with them for 25 min. But in some cases, our class might be less than 25 min if the next slot of the teacher has already been booked. Sometimes the lesson can be for even less than 5 min. But having 5-min-long classes never means that it is unsatisfactory. Recently very poignant encounters with wonderful tutors have been made in those short classes. They will mean a lot to me in my life.

Chance encounters with people can change our lives. Looking back, these encounters even seem to have been arranged well in advance.

All we have to do is make every encounter meaningful and fruitful, which would lead to a purposeful life.

Nobuzo Mori, a noted Japanese educator remarked, “We encounter people at the right time and place for a reason”. (translated by Kaz Yokoyama)
