I have been tallying up the benefits to aging and growing old. (And yes there are benefits despite all the propaganda that we need to stay young at all costs, botox injections anyone?)
Benefits to aging:
We can be more settled, take our pleasures closer to home or at home.
We can rest and relax more and take naps and do little or no work.
Our obligations shrink, if we want to let them, and we can do what we want more often if we want to do anything at all.
If there is a time for more peace, ease, and rest this is it.
The opportunity presents itself for some real spiritual growth and personal evolution
which is not always available to the young and the busy. Allan
