I don't usually use other's quotes on my blog, but this one immediately made me laugh because of the beautiful simplicity of this message. And because its such a good example of how wild the human mind/ego works - unless we learn to tame it !
The Dalai Lama was asked what surprises you the most, he replied: "Man, 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 he dies having never really lived."
