THIS time last year, the Dalai Lama was asked, “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. And as a result he doesn’t live in the present or the future.
And he lives as if he’s never going to die, and then he dies having never really lived.”
