I was trawling through some old notes and came across “The Paradox of Our Age” by the Dalai Lama so I thought about it for a while then came to realise Our Age is not that bad. My Thoughts in Brackets.
We have more degrees but less sence, more knowledge but less judgment,
more experts but more problems,more medicines but less healthiness.(WE NOW HAVE THE OLDEST POPULATION)
We have been all the way to the moon and back but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbours.(WE NOW HAVE NEIGBOURHOOD WATCH)
We build more computers to hold more information to produce more copies than ever, but have less communication. (WE NOW HAVE SOCIAL WEBSITES)
These are times of fast foods but slow digestion.(WE NOW HAVE YACULT)
Tall man but short charecter, steep profits but shallow relationships.(WE NOW HAVE COMIC RELIEF raising £74 million and CHILDREN IN NEED £18 million)
H H The XIV Dalai Lama.
