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.
“it’s just your age”
