To Love:

Verbal Confirmation:                                                                                                                       To be, to have, to think, to move—which of these verbs is the one you feel most connected to? Or is there another verb that characterizes you better? Ben Huberman

 To be, I am that I am. Having lived through the uncertainty of youth, the responsibility of the sandwich years, I am now privileged to approach three score years and ten. I can now bask in feeling complete.

Many dread old age. Pensioners have a certain untouchable and unthinkable tag. The young believe we’re a drag on the economy.

I like to think that when I am no longer capable of helping in a physical sense, I shall be able to send out positive vibrations that uplift those who are still in the mire of negativity. My belief is that thoughts do have power.

Of all the verbs, to love is the strongest. May we all find someone to love, and someone to love us.

      Yes Helen, it’s a pity our society doesn’t hold the same reverence for the wisdom of old age as some other countries do. I, too, appreciate this stage of my life, having the freedom to write is wonderful!

    Ah, that’s YOU, Ba – you all over ! 🙂
    How come you’re so nice, when life has not been all that thrilling throughout ?
    I reckon I know: it’s because now you’re in your safe haven – loved and sure of it. And, of course, able to love.

      Yes Maggie, it is just like a prayer, but so many turn away from prayer. I guess with the same intent, it’s what ever works for people; it is the intention that counts. Surrounding people in light is what I try to practise. 🙂
