Maybe "spontaneous" would be a better word than "capricious." I've heard
both Maharishi and local enlightened friends say that they're often
surprised by the things they find themselves doing. Maharishi would say "I
was saying such and such in that lecture. There must have been someone who
needed to hear it." Another friend said, "I was going to the post office but
found myself at the coffee shop," implying that something other than an
individuality was in the driver's seat.
