Wherever you go on the planet, whichever part, you are going to meet some inevitable things- that is people or situations that trigger anger, frustration or ego in you. Or people that trigger lust or attachment in you. Or greed. Its not about places, its about your mind. Till your mind learn to be happy and centered always, in all situations, you will continue to learn. And when the learning matures, the people or situations may not be able to create bigger triggers, but only small ripples that dissolve quickly.. moving towards that maturity is evolution.
