Internal compass

It’s funny how external factors can influence one’s internal compass. Things such as bad relationships, financial problems, workplace issues and and hedonistic pursuits can easily mess up the compass.

Messing with the compass is instantaneous. Repairing it though, takes a much longer time. Some compasses never truly get fixed, because the damage done went too deep.

I wonder how someone like the Dalai Lama manages his internal compass.
