Words of Wisdom From the Dalai Lama...

The Dalai Lama had some very interesting things to say in this article. Here is my favorite part:

"It is fascinating. In the West, you have bigger homes, yet smaller families; you have endless conveniences -- yet you never seem to have any time. You can travel anywhere in the world, yet you don't bother to cross the road to meet your neighbors. I don't think people have become more selfish, but their lives have become easier and that has spoiled them. They have less resilience, they expect more, they constantly compare themselves to others and they have too much choice -- which brings no real freedom."
