I have a hypothetical situation for you. Hopefully this is the right place to ask. Suppose you're a Buddhist in Chicago. You have no job, no home, and a small sum of money - a few hundred dollars or so. You have very few possessions, and you like it that way. You do not own or have access to a car. Aside from being alive and healthy, the most important thing to you is studying under a particular martial arts master who teaches at a school in the city. What do you do?
One possibility which I would be particularly inclined towards is living and working at a monastery as a layperson. However, I'm not sure this is possible in Chicago. What do you guys think?
So I've come to the conclusion that this hypothetical individual is thinking too much into it. Things will work themselves out for him, and, if they don't, that's fine, too.
