Master, how can I face isolation?

Clean your house. Thoroughly in every corner.

Even the ones you never felt like, the courage and the patience to play.

Make your house bright and well cared for. It removes dust, cobwebs, and impurities. Even the most hidden. Your house represents you: if you take care of it, you also take care of yourself.

Master but the time is long.

After taking care of me through my house, how can I live the isolation?

Fix what can be fixed and remove what you no longer need.

Dedicate yourself to the patchwork, embroider the starts of your pants, sew well the frayed edges of your dresses, restore a piece of furniture, and repair everything worth repairing. The rest, throw it away. With gratitude.

And with the awareness that its cycle has ended.

Fixing and removing outside of yourself allows you to fix or remove what’s inside of you.

Master and then what?

What can I do all the time alone?

Sowing.

Even a seed in a vase.

Take care of a plant, water it every day, talk to it, give it a name, remove the dry leaves and weeds that can suffocate it and steal precious vital energy.

It is a way of caring for your inner seeds, your desires, your intentions, your ideals.

Master and if the void comes to visit me? … If fear of illness and death come?

Talk to them.

Prepare the table for them too; reserve a place for each of your fears.

Invite them to dinner with you. In addition, ask them why they came from so far to your house. What message do they want to bring you? What do they want to communicate to you?

Master, I don’t think I can do this…

It is not isolation your problem, but the fear of facing your inner dragons. Those that you always wanted to get away from you. Now you can’t run away. Look them in the eyes, listen to them and you will discover that they put you against the wall.

They have isolated you so they can talk to you.

Like the seeds that can only sprout if, they are alone.

Advice to 50-years old and older

Because none of us have many years to live, and we can’t take along anything when we go, so we don’t have to be too thrifty.

Spend the money that should be spent, enjoy what should be enjoyed, donate what you are able to donate.

DON’T WORRY about what will happen after we are gone, because when we return to dust, we will feel nothing about praises or criticisms. The time to enjoy the worldly life and your hard earned wealth will be over!

DON’T WORRY too much about your children, for children will have their own destiny and should find their own way. Care for them, love them, give them gifts but also enjoy your money or what is left of it, while you can. Life should have more to it than working from the cradle to the grave!!

50-year olds, don’t trade in – your health for wealth, by working yourself to an early grave anymore. Because your money may not be able to buy your health.

When to stop making money, and how much is enough?
(A HUNDRED thousand, One million, ten million, One billion?)

Out of thousand hectares of good farm land, you can consume only three quarts (of rice) daily; out of a thousand mansions, you only need eight square meters of space to rest at night.

So, as long as you have enough food and enough money to spend, that is good enough. You should live happily. Every family has its own problems.

Just DO NOT COMPARE with others for fame and social status and see whose children are doing better etc., but challenge others for happiness, health, enjoyment, quality of life and longevity.

DON’T WORRY about things that you can’t change because it doesn’t help and it may spoil your health.

You have to create your own well-being and find your own place of happiness. As long as you are in good mood and good health, think about happy things, do happy things daily and have fun in doing, then you will pass your time happily every day.

One day passes WITHOUT happiness, you will lose one day.
One day passes WITH happiness and then you gain one day.

In good spirit, sickness will cure;
In a happy spirit, sickness will cure faster;
in high and happy spirits, sickness will never come.

With good mood, suitable amount of exercise, always in the sun, variety of foods, reasonable amount of vitamin and mineral intake, hopefully you will live another 20 or 30 years of healthy life of pleasure.

ABOVE ALL –
Learn to cherish the goodness around… like your spouse and FRIENDS……….. They all make you feel young and “wanted”… without them you are surely to feel lost !!

Wishing you all the best for the years to come.

Please share this with all your friends who are 50 plus and those who will be 50 plus after some time and also with your children.
