I’ve discovered the old mans secret

If-youth-is-wasted-on

 

To some life is about success, accumulating money,

I failed at that. I even failed at killing. that’s how useless I am.

Getting one over on other people, gives a  fleeting feeling of joy,superiority.

You can become powerful, living  in your temporary freedom with all your wealth.

Ruled by your ego with all the illusions  you can buy.

I saw an old man sitting on  a seat once,when I was younger.

Just sitting.

I thought – what is he doing?

He’s not doing anything. I couldn’t handle it, How could anyone just sit?

What’s wrong with him?

 

Sitting Zen

 

Everything I’ve done in my life – it all came back to that moment.

The man on the seat.

Everywhere I went. What was his secret?

He must’ve been doing something.

But What?

 

Age shall not Weary

 

I got older. Old enough to look for seats when I was out walking.

I got even older – I wouldn’t walk unless I knew there was a seat.

Older still – I would go just to sit on the seat.

Then it hit me. I was the old man now.

Sitting down.

From my youth  I searched my whole life trying to find the secret of that old man.

I found it by just sitting down on a seat.

I knew the secret.

The old man was incontinent.

Have you ever wasted your time on anything?

  1. Have I ever wasted my time on anything? Well, of course- doesn’t everyone? But I didn’t become incontinent as a result. I waste time every day- it’s one of the luxuries of retirement 😀
