#11 – Korean Blind Alley
Back in Australia, the narrator takes part in a course offered by the well-known Erhard Seminars Training organization. Other people taking part in the course congratulate him on his ability to speak openly and straight from the heart. This gives him new hope.
After a chance meeting with a Korean monk in Sydney he decides to try to live the life of a monk again. He feels desperately in need of inner peace and wants to come to terms with his sexuality. He feels time is running out, and he is increasingly restless and agitated. After a short spell in Korea, it becomes clear that being a monk there is not working out for him. He plans to return to Thailand.
