All is destined to old age. And no one will disagree age climbs up the ladder every year. From time immemorial it is rare for a man to live to seventy (70). Examine the years of childhood and old age and there’s not much left between. Only save worries, pride, pain, and emptiness. All our days are filled with sighing. Is there anything in the universe but emptiness?
All seasons in the sand – spring, summer, autumn and winter are just a snap of the fingers. Hair has become white now, the flowers are fresh yesteryear and become dry. Changing colors are part of the process, like the morning dew and like the fragrance of candle light is the evening breeze. Why wait for tomorrow, when one can live today? Only to later understand emptiness.
It is written, “Seventy (70) years are given us! And some may even live to eighty (80). But even the best of these years are often empty and filled with pain; soon they disappear, and we are gone.” (*1)
What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while, and then vanishes. (*2)
Comes a season when the moon lacks brightness and a time when flowers lose their beauty. The shadow of how life ends. Then a new phase you will notice as the bell sees off the dusk, and the cock announces the arrival of the dawn.
One must love life for it dwells in a short period of time. More regard to good health as the most important matter. Say heaven isn’t far away to live a joyous life.
Seventy is the number of one’s ticket to exit this world returning home! A numerical threshold from womb to tomb. Shall one be held back by one’s tombs overgrown with weeds? Since one have already suffered owns heart, what can be gained from regret and sorrow? Don’t worry.
Instead, one must live joy today. It brightens the world with color and fills life with hope. Before home strech, one must allow life to be filled with a grateful heart. It is in fact the wisest attitude towards life. Who knows what tomorrow may brings?
In one’s journey, one must travel light. “Forget the age when one has still mission and vision in life to accomplish.” Cheers! 🏛️
