Personality Changes

I’m moving to Melbourne pretty soon. In 13 days to be exact.

I’ve noticed changes in my personality already.

I once heard this story.

This boy is offered an opportunity to be a monk in a cave with a older man for 10 years. There is no going back once he has left.

If the boy accepts, he has already completed his training.

This sounds kind of strange, but let me explain.

If the boy is really willing to give up 10 years of his life to meditate. Then he is already well on the way to understanding the beauty and power of his practice.

In the same way, in my preparations for moving to Melbourne. I am already well on the way to the personality changes that will occur during my trip. I have already begun the hero’s journey.
