Thanks to all my well wishers.
You say I am 80 years old (30 in India+50 in US), No No I am only 20 years young. I thank my G-O-D (Generator-Operator-Destroyer) that I can still walk 9 holes on Golf Course.
For my remaining life, I will try to control the five emotions (Desire, Anger, Greed, Attachments & Ego) to a lesser and lesser degree as the year’s pass-by. This is my promise to myself at the age of 80 on November 19, 2019.
For me, my family comes first, then my GOD (Nature & Soul), and then the people of the world. At present my family is well settled in India & US, my SOUL is content and at peace, now I am going to spend rest of my life to the service of the needy and innocent people of the world.
I am going to live my life and forget my age. I have seen better days, but I have also seen worse. I don’t have everything that I want, but I do have all I need. I wake up with some aches and pains, but I wake up and am conscious. My life may not be perfect, but I am blessed. I am so blessed to have lived long enough to have my hair turning grey, and to have my youthful laughs be forever etched in to deep grooves on my face. We have moved to Boston and bought a condo as our final residence, close to our five grandchildren. I will be watching them grow up step by step.
Success is very often confounded with making money – plenty of money and with gaining prestige and reputation. True success does not lie in these things. True success is in Freedom and Fulfillment.
As I have aged, I have become kinder to myself and less critical of myself. I have become my own friend. I know I am sometimes forgetful, but there again, some of the life is just as well forgotten. And, I eventually remember the important things. As you get older, it is easier to be positive. I care less about what other people think. I don’t question myself anymore. I have even earned the right to be wrong.
So I like being old, it has set me Free and Fulfilled or Content.
