Mar de sabedoria

O Dalai Lama deu no outro dia uma entrevista e duas frases ficaram-me no ouvido.

Long flights, those I really feared, but now I’m used to them.The fear now is that I never learnt to swim so if the plane crashes on water, I would  immediately go deep under the sea and be enjoyed by a shark. That I really fear.

“(…)there is a huge gap between appearances and reality. Appearance is something absolute, but reality is not that way – everything is interdependent, not absolute.” Esta última frase tem mais de 18 séculos e foi dita por um monge, Nagarjuna.

One thought on “Mar de sabedoria

  1. In regards to appearance, this is true. How a person can appear at a glance could not coincide with what is actually true…there are many layers to a person. Or coming from a bookworm: “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover.” — this applies to people as well.
