Transcript of "The Paradox Of Our Time - By Dr. Bob Moorehead"

  1. 1. By Dr. Bob Moorehead The Paradox Of Our Time
  2. 2. Today we have taller buildings, but shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints.
  3. 3. Today we spend more, but have less. We buy more, and enjoy it less.
  4. 4. Today we have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time!!!
  5. 5. We have more degrees, but less common sense, more knowledge, but less judgment.
  6. 6. We have more experts, but more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.
  7. 7. We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get to angry too quickly, stay up too late, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.
  8. 8. We’ve learned how to make living, but not a life. We’ve added years to our life, not life to our years. We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor.
  9. 9. 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.
  10. 10. We write more, learn less, plan more, but accomplish less. We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait. We have higher incomes, but lower morals. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies, but have less communication.
  11. 11. 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.
  12. 12. We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too little and lie too often. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill.
  13. 13. 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.
  14. 14. The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, he 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 not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
  15. 15. The moral of this story is that we must live happily in the present. Remember, to spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever. Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.
  16. 16. 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 it doesn't cost a cent.
  17. 17. Remember, to say, "I love you" to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.
  18. 18. Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person might not be there again. Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.
  19. 19. “ It’s a time when technology can bring this message to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete. ― Dr. Bob Moorehead ” Thank You Very Much Sompong Yusoontorn
