During one interview the Dalai Lama was asked what surprises him the most about humanity, his response was mindaltering:
Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his healthNow i have nothing more to say.
in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.
