Live Life to the Fullest

30 Jul

Id like to share an anecdote my grandfather recently shared with me. It was something the Dalai Lama stated that really got me thinking.

“When asked “What thing about humanity surprises you the most?”, the Dalai Lama answered:

“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 dies having never really lived.”
