Be right back.

Much has happened since the last post; vulture attacks in the desert, chillin' with the Sikhs, a trip to the Pakistani border with Zach de la Rocha's long lost brother, relaxing in "Tibet" and attending the Dalai Lama teachings.  You'll get to hear about these, but first, I have to go meditate on impermanence for 10 days.  brb.

In the meantime, I'll let you marinate on these words from His Holiness

THE PARADOX OF OUR AGE


We have bigger houses but smaller families;
more conveniences, but less time;
We have more degrees, but less sense;
more knowledge, but less judgement;
more experts, but more problems;
more medicines, 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 build more computers to hold more
information to produce more copies then 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 a time when there is much in the window,
but nothing in the room.



His Holiness 14th Dalai Lama
