There is nothing in the room
Mijn inspiratie

The Paradox Of Our Age

Dit gedicht van His Holiness the XIVth Dalai Lama inspireert mij tot het brengen van meer puurheid en openheid in de wereld.

Tot meer verbinding.

Tot het afzetten van maskers.

Tot zijn wie ik ben, met al mijn mooie en minder mooie kanten.

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 neighbour.

We build more computers to hold more information,
to produce more copies than 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 small characters,
steep profits, but shallow relationships.

It is a time when there is much in the window,
but nothing in the room.

– by His Holiness the XIVth Dalai Lama
