Connectedness With The Environment Is The Meaning Of Life

Speak­ing in your moth­er tongue doesn‘t stress you at all while hav­ing a con­ver­sa­tion in anoth­er lan­guage might result in hard men­tal work. Even if you are flu­ent, let‘s say, in french, it most prob­a­bly requires a sig­nif­i­cant effort to pro­duce the melo­di­ous tim­bre of a Parisian. Where­as we have inter­nal­ized and syn­chro­nized our native lan­guages with our thoughts, we have to sys­tem­at­i­cal­ly trans­late our think­ing into for­eign words.

Today, I stum­bled upon this inter­view with molecular-biologist-turned-Buddhist-monk, Matthieu Ricard (in Ger­man). A few years ago, I lis­tened to his famous Altru­ism and although my favorite way of med­i­ta­tion is not focus­ing on a spe­cif­ic topic, s.a. love, or altru­ism, but try­ing not to think at all, I’m absolute­ly con­vinced by his gen­er­al approach of altru­ism. In his inter­view he demon­strates that he’s a very prac­ti­cal per­son: refer­ring to the Bud­dhist story of 500 people
