by the Dalai Lama

THE PARADOX OF OUR AGE

We have bigger houses but smaller families;
more conveniences, but less time;
We have more degrees, but less sense;
more knowledge, but less judgement;
more experts, but more problems;
more medicines, but less healthiness;
We've been all the way to the moon and back
but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor.
We built more computers to hold more information to produce
more copies than ever, but have less communication;
We have become long on quantity, but short on quality.
These are times of fast foods but slow digestion;
tall man but short character;
steep profits but shallow relationships.
It's a time when there is much in the window,
but little in the room.

Thank you so much for sharing this. HH the Dalai Lama often has words for the wordless.

May you be filled with peace and love.
