Old people are big kids!
In one of my recent post to Facebook I stated that “Old people are just big kids with wrinkly skin.” Have you found this to be true? There are a lot of old people that feel their age and they are in pain a lot, and we pray for them and want to help them feel better, but every once in a while you will come across someone who doesn’t play by the rules. They are old, but the only way you can tell they are old, is from their wrinkles. They absolutely refuse to let their age slow them down at all.
If you look into their eyes, you can see a sparkle, a Love of living, shining through, piercing each moment with wonder and awe, kind of like the way this boy looks. Wouldn’t it be amazing if we could feel like that all of the time? Totally in Love with yourself and living! Not just in Love, but ecstatic with yourself!
Based on my experience with the people I have worked with, I have found that Love is like a wave. In the beginning, when people start growing and processing, they move from pain to Love and when they are in Love, it is so great for a while and then the pain comes back again. Then they process and grow some more! When they continually process and grow and change IN LOVE, the wave of love gets bigger and stronger! They get to where they can make themselves feel ecstatic for a while, sometimes for a long while. And then it moves into peace and eventually the peace turns into contentment. After being in contentment for some time, their bodies want to move again, to Shine and they start getting excited and then they have to move and try to keep their minds in the present, but with all the excitement building up, their minds shoot ahead to manifest something amazing like laughing like crazy, dancing to their heart’s content, or singing a song! And then it starts all over again!
Love – it is so amazing to ride the wave!
What are your waves like?
