I can see it. I am not very well versed on Buddhism, but from what little I know, it fits.
The scene when he "robs" the convenience store guy and ends up taking his ID and telling him to run home to his crappy basement apartment. "Tomorrow will be the most beautiful day of Raymond K. Hessel's life. His breakfast will taste better than any meal you and I have ever tasted." This has always stuck with me as a strangely beautiful situation.
In times like that, people will tend to reorganize their priorities and focus on what is truly important. From what I understand about Buddhism, its all about focusing on what is truly important and doing away with all the crap society tells you is important, but really is worthless.
Thanks for the thread S+F!
