The rewards of the unsought

I’ve just discovered that “” originates from a story of “The Three Princes of Serendip”.

I read by John Perry Barlow the other day. In it, he suggests that the challenge is not to seek happiness but to open yourself to its arrival.

In other words, the challenge is not to seek, but to open yourself to arrival.

Is it that I should learn the meaning of the word by having recently stumbled upon an example which illustrates it perfectly only slightly prior to having the origins revealed to me?

Perhaps.
