Thoughtful Thursday........

A question that was posed to the Dalai Lama,

“What thing about humanity surprises you the most?”

His answer "Man."

"Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices his money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he doesn't enjoy the present. As a result he doesn't live in the present or the future. He lives as if he’s never going to die, and then he dies having never really lived."

    He hit the nail right on the head there, didn't he? Definitely a wonderfully wise man.


  3. True! Although I'm not a Dalai Lama fan or supporter as such.

  4. Excellent. Thanks for the post, and the reminder.
