Short Story : Life and Age!

Updated on December 31, 2011

Life was given to you with one purpose and one purpose only, to go on and live.

Following the instinctive instructions and also your parental instructions. If your parents follows those two during their lifetime, then went on to volunteer to follow any others, then chances are you will also be subjected to those virtues and scrutinizes. But if we are all paying close attention, we would realize that life in itself is they most powerful entity of all times. Within life, lies the answer to all things. Outside of life lie all the secrets to gain life. We as humans would always see death as evil and wicked and maybe it really is. But it remains a reality in itself being the opposite of this life we came to now know. Thais is why I get offended , by those people who shows absolutely no respect and gratitude towards their parents, even if it become a thing ,of you simply sharing with them your new found knowledge , which may not be much because everyone who have traveled to great levels will tell you had it not been for their parents.

That’s the investment your parents made and also what you are going to make if you understand anything at all about this thing called life.

Age, contrary to popular beliefs and understandings. It is not about a look, it is a truthful feelings based on what you have grown to understand about life, from your parents and from others in life itself. I have grown to know from quite early during my life that a man is as old as “HE” is and feels in relation to what he knows that he sincerely knows. There are ways to live if one wants to live to be hundreds and there are ways to live if you wish to die quickly.

If you don’t know, because you have not learned and no one observed and teacher you, it’s not the end of the world, nor is it the end of your life. So listen carefully and practice this, if you don’t know how to act your age, just be real with yourself in every situation when the doubt comes about.

To thyne own self are true, and instinctively you true life will show you!

You have the very best of what you need in this life, that’s why you are here. It is a lack of your understanding of your own life, when these insecurities steps up. Yours is yours and mine is mine. How much do you cost and why? Then how much am I going to fetch on that market depends on why am I in that market, which may simply not be my own!

Does an egg have any rights in any Rock Stone dance! Don’t you as yet know that a one eyed man, can easily be king in many ways in a blind man’s territory?

There is this rule of life, that say you must get better all across the board as you get older.

Never Worst! Be sure that you are not now quarreling with someone, only because someone quarreled with you. Do onto others as you will have then done onto you! Not as others have done to you! What is the reason for a reward? What will life then reward you for, what’s the difference you made? You followed everything, I guess you went to Rome and got infected. When I do leave and go to Rome I don’t only do like the Romans do, I also teach the Romans a thing or two.

That’s also the correct way of moving on through for you!

Give Thanks.

      Thank you poetvix. I a very great pleasure reading your comment believe me, and even better so to hear your truths and your beliefs ,this is the level in life that we owe to ourselves , at least "to thyne own self be true" Just reading your response that you see death differently , that's actually the similarity right there , speaking your truth.

      Without any compromise on either of our paths , I guarantee you, that it's these same things we see the ways that we see them are also the same.

      Beautiful and thanks for being you.

      These are words to live by. We do owe our parents and each other and ourselves. A life of service is a rich life indeed. I do, however, see death a little differently. To me it's a door to a better place, the next stage in our growth and an escape from the pain of this world. Yes, it makes me sad and sometimes angry to lose the ones I love and care about. I know that's wrong. But after I get over those weaknesses of the human condition, I remember the one I lost is not lost but waiting and finally at peace. God bless you and thank you for sharing with us!

      Life is what you make it. What you learn from that existence is wisdom. With age comes maturity, we choose to remain immature or we choose to mature with age. Through our maturity shows our age and through this our wisdom shine.

      God Bless.

      Happy New Year!
