Balbir Singh goes on…
“In the Western world, and especially here in F1, the people are more material, because there is a lot of money floating about. people who live in high society don’t want to go down. That is natural and understandable, but i always say that it doesn’t matter how rich someone is, as long as he doesn’t lose his human side and respect for other people as human beings. Sometimes when people get very high up the ladder of society, it isn’t easy to be like that, because they forget. Some rich people think they can buy everything, but the truth is there are a few things you can’t buy in life. You can’t buy a good, true friend. You can’t buy love. You can’t buy your health. That’s impossible. We live in a world that is based so much on material things, but whether you are a millionaire or you are poor, everyone knows we all end up the same way. People try to forget, no one likes thinking about it and some try and deny it, but everyone will ending up needing a place two metres down some day. Nobody can buy their way out of that final destination
Wise words… and that’s my reason for sharing in this “spirit”
“So this is the reality of life and you have to take care of all these things. The most important thing is to stay a human being and respect people. The spiritual way is to open your heart and love Of course, that “love” doesn’t mean the narrow definition of love between a (the) man and the woman. It’s the love of brothers, the love of parents and friends. There is so much love in every human heat that if you are open you can love everybody. This is my motto. I open my heart and I love everyone. When people come to me, they know I will be welcoming. Sharing your love with another human being is a wonderful thing.”
from Godspeed (Chapter Ten pg 167)
Great sentiments loving everybody, Balbir. Something to aim at.
Thanks for sharing , Balbir… and I in turn am passing on your wisdom in this “little” book
You said you wanted to write a book… and I have taken that “liberty” on your behalf.
“Instead of the limits of borders (of countries and of our minds) let us and our leaders expand our sense of possibility… and together let’s look at building bridges to distant horizons, far and great. Lord, help us all lift our eyes a little higher.”
