I observe people, examining their faces, most so unhappy. I feel sorry for them, ´Strutting and fretting their hour upon the stage!´ Robots all!
They go hither and yon chasing the material, rushing about in motor vehicles, making noise and creating pollution. They don´t know that they don´t know!
Life, what is it? Watching TV, going shopping, taking care of baby, career, money, love, etc.? I feel so sorry for them, lives wasted! And for what?
I look at people, so sad, so sad, your dad!
The thinkers, we,
we spend our time trying to figure
as in numbers,
what is life all about? The rest, the 99.9 just try to survive, day to day, and then die, not having a clue!
I remember a quote from a Moorish King (via Will and Ariel Durant´s THE HISTORY OF CIVILIZATION). The King said, Óf my long and powerful life I can remember only two days I was happy!
Is material happiness important, ultimately? Modern life sells such, if we would just buy this or that!
Is it better to have little power and/or little consciousness? Just to live, ´streaming´life and nothing more?
People, friends ask me all the time how I feel, am I doing O.K. I think, at least the younger ones, are worried I´m going to die in their presence. Then, what to do! I always reply that I´m fine, as to relieve their anxiety.
But, being old is different, as least for me. There´s pain everyday, of one sort or another, whether it be physical or mental. The body is disintegrating, piece by piece, organ by organ. Thus, it´s not like being 19, or 30, or even 40 years of age. Older people have more trouble seeing and hearing.
As we grow older we fight against such, but inevitable! We have surgery, we exercise, we do yoga, we adjust our diets, our life style, we tend to sit more. We go to doctors and if no help, we research on our own. How can I maintain, live longer?
We think it´s more important we realize we´re MUCH MORE THAN OUR EGO-BODIES! Additonally, that there are higher, and greater worlds than this one (dual reality), and we´re not talking about ´Heaven and/or Hell!´
Read Rudolf Steiner´s HOW TO KNOW HIGHER WORLDS!
Basically, bodily life has given us the opportunity to perfect our souls! 99.9% of the 8 billion, hardly have a clue!! Don´t be one of those! Help elevate the Spiritual (Divine) world by perfecting yourself! This is WHY WE ARE HERE (with an ego-body)!
