Dalai Lama XIV

“People were created to be loved. Things were created to be used. The reason why the world is in chaos is because things are being loved and people are being used.”

People are a direct manifestation of God. When we recognize this, we love all people as loving them is loving God. Everything else around us exits to aid us in realizing our purpose in life: to have a wonderful time, realize our potential and help others do likewise. This world now is not in harmony because we are abusing others in pursuit of things that we prize or think we love.

When we realize our potential, we can, as God, view this world from a distance and see its chaos as absurdly funny; but, sad close-up.
