The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, he said:
Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health."
The way we take health for granted same way we behave with nature. We assume it will continue to support us and nourish us even as we continue to exploit and disrupt it.
We are focusing on economic gains and ignoring the impact it will have on the environment. All across the world, we are facing issues of air, water, food pollution and living a healthy and happy life may soon be a distant memory. The way we are raging war for the oil, we will soon be making war over water.
Dalai Lama was right, humans are strange.
