Getting Old

24 April 2013

 

We are constantly taught how to be successful, how to earn more money, how to be a millionaire in the shortest time. Do we also learn how to live happily? How to age gracefully? How?

I don't know how. She doesn't either.

She is my relative. Senile dementia, immobile, bed-ridden.

In the natural circle of aging, sickness and death, success? Fame? Fortune? They appear to be useless, powerless and lifeless.

Cherish your own life, as well as the lives of people around you, especially the elders. Live in the present moment,  age happily and leave freely. 

Please live well.


我们常常被灌输的都是如何赚钱,如何更成功,生活水平如何更高。那如何活得更快乐?如何自在地老去?如何?

我不知道,我想她也不知道。

这是我的一位亲人。失智,四肢无力,行动不便。

在老病死面前,成功名利财富都显得无用,无力,且苍白。

好好把握自己的生命,也好好把握身边人,及时孝顺家里的老人家。开心地过生活,潇洒地老去,自在地离开。

请好好活着。
