Words of HH Dalai Lama, #1

In Dharamsala, HH Dalai Lama is a presence that is everywhere in picture, word, prayer, etc.

There are four short undated "essays" of his that one sees repeatedly, and I believe they deserve reproduction here. I will post one each day, beginning today June 8.


The Paradox of Our Age

"We have bigger houses and smaller families; more convenience, but less time.

We have degrees, but less sense; more knowledge, but less judgment; more medicine, but less healthiness.

We have been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbour.

We built more computers to hold more information to produce more copies than ever, but have less human communication.

We have become long on quantity, but short on quality.

These are times of fast foods, and slow digestion; tall man and short character; steep profits, and shallow relationships.

It is a time when there is much in the window and nothing in the room."

-- His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama

HH, I think, is talking about wisdom, sometimes also called light. I am currently understanding this "wisdom" as something other than knowledge or common sense or intuition. A universal mind quality. Wisdom knows without thinking or figuring out or being taught or experimenting. This is the Wisdom that runs the universes, yet is available to the enlightened.

HH put it so simply and in a way that calls us to change, and to want to change. His kindness is beautiful.

Something, a "connection" perhaps lead me to your writings this week.
"Experience for true understanding".
