Reflections on Getting Older

Today, I ache, my hearing is worse and worse, I am walking slower, and my body is not what it used to be. But I am not my body, so why does it make me angry? Today the sun rose right on time and this evening it set right on time. So too does spirit rise each morning when I awake as it also sets as I go to sleep each night. We must look at ourselves each day just as Earth looks at each day. Our day begins when we arise and ends when go to sleep. Our day is done and nothing more can be accomplished, nothing that happened can be changed, nothing undone can be finished. We must stop worrying or regretting what happened, be joyful for what did happen, erase our blackboards and be ready to start a new day when we awake.
