SOMEONE ASKED THE DALAI LAMA WHAT SURPRISES HIM MOST?

THIS WAS HIS RESPONSE.

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 NEVER HAVING REALLY LIVED.
