The Paradox of Our Age

Wisdom from the 14th Dalai Lama…

We have bigger houses, but smaller families.
More conveniences but less time.
We have more degrees but less sense.
More knowledge but less judgment.
More experts but more problems.
More medicine but less healthiness. 

We’ve been all the way to the moon and back but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor.

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

We have become long on quantity but short on quality. 

These are times of fast foods but slow digestion.
Tall men but short character.
Steep profits but shallow relationships.

It’s is a time when there is much in the window but nothing in the room.
