Words of Wisdom for Dec. 10, 2019:
Excerpt from Seven Years in Tibet

Dalai Lama: Then tell me what you love about [climbing mountains].

Heinrich Harrer: The absolute simplicity. That's what I love. When you're climbing your mind is clear and free from all confusions. You have focus. And suddenly the light becomes sharper, the sounds are richer and you're filled with the deep, powerful presence of life. I've only felt that one other time.

Dalai Lama: When?

Heinrich Harrer: In your presence, Kundun.

— Heinrich Harrer, Seven Years in Tibet
