from this conflict comes our chance

the physical level is there
the mental/spiritual level is there
and they are always in conflict, they always will be

from this conflict comes our chance —
it is the basis of change.
it is the basis of transformation.

His Holiness Dalai Lama, Teachings, McLeod Ganj, September 2007
