I went to a meditation retreat in Thailand and witnessed exemplary lives, I went to see the sunrise and got only rain, I thought it was going to be difficult but I almost ran away, I went looking for a small part to complete my puzzle and I got a completely different game, I went looking for a Thai monk and found lovely European people, I went to meet an enlightened and a dog bit me, I went for breakfast and got a wheat beverage, I went to a tropical country and had to use winter jacket, I went for explanations and received smiles, I went to take pictures and was the main attraction, I went to be happier and got control of my mind, I went for a glass of water and got my head shaved. That’s what happen when you have expectations.

In the last months I made a great trip around some Arab and Asian countries. This exposure, made me realize a lot of things, such as the reason why I didn’t went to China (something I didn’t understand when happened), and my main conclusion was how self-limited we are. After being amazed by 5.000 year old inexplicable constructions, after witnessing one of the most desirable metropolis in the middle of the merciless dessert, after being surprised by creativity without resources and after understanding the wealth of the poor, I can only say we limit ourselves to what we know and to what we think we deserve, only that we know almost nothing, and what we think we deserve is only a small fraction of what we could have.
