“In answer to the observation that some people say they do not meditate because they are too busy, the Dalai Lama told the following story:
A monk keeps promising his student that he will take him on a picnic but is always too busy to do so. One day the monk and his student see a procession carrying a corpse.
"Where is he going?" the monk asks his students.
"On a picnic."”
It really has been helping.
