Perhaps because you’ve always been a part of Shangri-La without knowing it. I’m sure of it, just as I’m sure there’s a wish for Shangri-La in everyone’s heart. I’ve never seen the outside world, but I understand there are millions and millions of people who are supposed to be mean and greedy. And I just know that secretly, they are all hoping to find a garden spot where there is peace, security, where there’s beauty and comfort, where they wouldn’t have to be mean and greedy. Oh, I just wish the whole world might come to this valley.
