The Paradox Of

Our Time
Today…

we have taller buildings,
but shorter tempers,
wider freeways,
but narrower viewpoints.
Today we spend more, but
have less. We buy more,
and enjoy it less.
We have bigger houses
and smaller families,
more conveniences,
but less time!!!
We have more degrees,
but less common sense,
more knowledge, but
less judgment.
We have more experts,
but more problems,

more medicine,
but less wellness.
We drink too much,
smoke too much,

spend too recklessly,
laugh too little,
drive too fast,
We get to angry too quickly,
stay up too late,
read too little,

watch TV too much,
and pray too seldom.
We've been all the way to the moon
and back, but have trouble crossing
the street to meet a new neighbor.
We’ve conquered outer space, but
not inner space. We've done larger
things, but not better things.
We've cleaned up the air,
but polluted the soul.
We've conquered the atom,
but not our prejudice.
We write more, learn less,
plan more, but accomplish less.
We’ve learned to rush, but
not to wait. We have higher
incomes,...
We build more computers
to hold more information,
to produce more copies,
but have less communication.
We have multiplied
our possessions, but
reduced our values.
We talk too much,
love too little and
lie too often.
We have more leisure and less
fun, more kinds of foods, but
less nutrition. We are long on
quantity, but short in quality.
These are the times of
fast foods and poor digestion,
big men and small character,
steep profits and shallow
relationships...
These are days of

quick trips,
disposable diapers,

throwaway morality,
one night stands,
overweight bodies,
and pills th...
We have two incomes,
but more divorce,
fancier houses,
but broken homes.
It is a time when there is much
in the showroom window and
nothing in the stockroom.
We’ve learned how to make
living, but not a life. We’ve
added years to our life,
not life to our years.
The Dalai Lama,

when asked

what surprised
him most about
humanity, he then

said, “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; the result being that he does

“He lives as if he is never
going to die, and then dies
having never really lived.”
The moral of this story is
that we must live happily
in the present.
Remember, to give a warm hug
to the one next to you, because
that is the only treasure you
can give with your heart and
