Over the last few years I’ve been close to some people who have retired — my father and an uncle, and in a way my stepfather too — and I’ve noticed that there are very different life rhythms for the elderly and those who still work in society. But I notice their interests go more towards travelling than towards the dharma.
Do you think that retired folks become less spiritual in their orientation? It certainly seems to me as if that is the case... there seems to be a certain age when people become more interested, around their 50’s, and then there seems to be a settling into the state of things as they are, as if it is no longer necessary to pursue things with such fire. There are exceptions of course.
But if I recall the Buddhist courses I have been on, it seems that that may hold some water.
