The man makes a great point. Watching the nightly news is proof we do need more of what the Dalai Lama speaks.
Maybe instead of encouraging our children to be happy and commercially successful, we should encourage them to affect change, to be healers of hearts, minds, families, animals, nature and our planet.
Maybe it’s time for us to aspire to a greater good. Perhaps peacemaker, storyteller, coach, social worker, volunteer are the job titles we should be aspiring to.
Maybe if we can achieve commercial success in the early part of our lives our later years and retirements can be when we can really make a difference. Maybe we can change our definition of success. Maybe we can be more.
And maybe we can all become a bit more of what this planet actually needs before we leave it.
