Spiritual guidance

A few years ago I discovered Buddhism.

Every week I would pop off on my bike for an evening of meditation and spiritual discussion.

I felt my values changing.

I began to think that my life and career priorities were wrong.

I decided to trust to fate and launch myself upon the world as a freelance consultant.

I excitedly explained to my Buddhist teacher.

“I’m stepping off the career ladder. All this contemplation of ethics, mindfulness and spiritual practice. It’s really changed the way I look at the world.”

He looked at me sadly.

“No”

he said

“it’s just your age”
