I often go back to my little notebook to read what the Dalai Lama once said. To remind me again and again, when I worry about matters, what REALLY matters.
When asked what surprised him the most about humanity, the Dalai Lama said, ‘We sacrifice our health in order to make wealth, then we sacrifice our wealth to get back our health. We are so anxious about what will happen in the future, that we don’t enjoy the present. The result being, we don’t live in the present or the future. We end up dying, never having truly lived.’
I hope the following will make sense to you, as it does to me.
