I was browsing around one of the local Op shops (New Hope) when a couple of books drew my attention
Neil DeGrasse "Astrophysics for people in a hurry" & Lewis Richmond (a Zen priest and meditation teacher) "Aging as a Spiritual Practice"...I bought both books...
Anyhow I've just read the introduction (and part of the first chapter) of Lewis Richmond's book ...
One of his teachers was Shunryu Suzuki, and at one time when Lewis was attending a Dharma talk by Suzuki ( back in the sixties) a student asked "Why do we meditate?" Suzuki answered with a laugh, "So you can enjoy your old age,"
Lewis calls his book "A map that reimagines aging not as a time of decline. but a time of fulfillment than can, in spite of occasional indignities, be something to enjoy"
What are your thoughts on aging?
Do you enjoy aging?
Or do you fear it?
Or something in between... just accept it?
"Time flies when you're having fun"
