This world is full of endless possibilities. You cannot do it all. Be weary of the guide books. Because they seldom are guides. They are more like all you can eat buffets. And you don't want to live off of a buffet during a longer pilgrimage.
Self-limitation is a novel and foreign idea in the western hemisphere. Why should I limit my self? I want it all and I want it now! Self-limitation lies at the heart of the life of a maturing pilgrim. We understand that we are not trying to become everything, but a very special something. By every choice, and therefore voluntary self-limitation, we become more of that specific something.
