Someone Asked The Dalai Lama What Surprises Him Most, His Response Was Mind Altering

You could say that the Dalai Lama is a pretty interesting guy, after all his stance on extra terrestrial life is quite interesting. During an interview the Dalai Lama was asked what surprises him the most, his response was quite mind altering.
“Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health 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.”
Pretty striking and powerful stuff if you really take it in. Sure, it’s easy to read this quote and move onto another page or video or whatever we may be doing, but if you truly take the time to let this reverberate in your conscious mind for a few minutes, the true meaning and profoundness of what he’s saying will kick in.

Everything Is Backwards On Earth!


We do so many things backwards here. We go about our lives in such a destructive manner on so many levels, only to use money to fix it. In order to get that money we have to work most of our days at jobs we for the most part don’t like -which of course is not good for your health to begin with. We do all this while thinking of all the toys we can buy with the money or saving for retirement that we may never make it to. It appears as though we live to work more than anything else here. In a sense we are like slaves only we don’t know it.

The Dalai Lama’s quote and what it inspires within me reminds me of one of my favorite quotes that I feel sums up how we do things here in such a beautiful way.
“Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.” – Michael Ellner
This may be very obvious to you or it may come as a surprise to you and you might think, what do you mean? None of those things are true. To that I would respond, look around, truly look at how each one of the things mentioned in that quote operate and you will notice very quickly the shear truth that exists within those words.

Legitimate Quote?


I came across this Dalai Lama quote a little while back but I decided to do some back checking to find out where this quote came from to make sure it was legit. What I was able to find was that it is likely the Dalai Lama that said this, but that the exact words/translation might be slightly different given his lack of a fluent English vocabulary.

Either way, whether he said it or not, this is a great message for us to take five minutes to think about. After all, it may make us look at a few things in our lives differently.

    2. It's the individual interpretation that "destroys spirit." Many people who call themselves Christian aren't even following their Bible, and the same can be said for numerous god-based religions. No, religion does not destroy spirit. But some followers of every religion do.
