We cannot avoid our lives at all - young or old, rich or poor. Whatever happens, we cannot save ourselves from our lives at all. We have to face the truth - not even the eventual truth but the real truth of our lives. We are here. Therefore, we have to learn how to go forward with our lives. This truth is what we call the wisdom of Shambhala.
