Attaching to age

Dear brothers and sisters,

Attaching to youth or old age can make us disappointed because “I’m 35 and I have nothing in hand”, or make us proud because “I’m only 22 and I have fame, career, love…”.

Attaching to youth or old age can make us unhappy because 40 seemed so old, or make us nervous because “I have reached this age, should I do this thing or not?”

Attaching to youth or old age can make us kowtow to an older person, and make us act superior to a younger person.

Attaching to age, as well as attaching to anything, will bring suffering. Not attaching to anything, we’ll cross beyond all sufferings and our heart is tranquil.

When we’re in suffering, ask ourselves: “What makes me suffer?” Then, find all the ways not to attach to that thing.

Not attaching to anything, our heart is tranquil.

Have a nice day.
