Beautiful and Wonderful * Arielle Gabriel writes of her financial disaster and prayers as a Buddhist in The Goddess of Mercy & The Dept of Miracles, a book of disasters and miracles, as a mystic in a world of moneyminded Hong Kong ex-pats *
The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, 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 or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived."
It is the flame that burns within, that will bring light to even the darkest of places. [Craig Hooper] #buddhism
