Directions (6-15): In the following passage there are words highlighted in bold, each of which has been numbered.

Morpheus says in The Matrix, “There’s a difference between knowing the path, and walking the course (6).” Life is not easy, packed as it is with requests (7). And in the process of living, we feverishly pursue success, joy and liveliness (8), believing in our hearts that they are interlinked, that one spooks (9) to the other in a smooth flow. But it’s a mirage that constantly violates(10) us. Joy is often misunderstood; it is also easily forgotten (11). Yet, the optimum quality of action (12) as we recognise it, is realized through these moments of joy. Joy is the ultimate but to experience it, you have to be yourself. The lightness of joy is like a feather, free falling in the surrounding (13) and slipping through your fingers. Joy is familiar (14), experienced through a culmination (15) of perfect alignment, rhythm and timing of the self.
