For senior citizens

Posted in Uncategorized by K P Ramachandran on April 2, 2021

All the seniors should know and follow these rules in order to get harmonious relations and amity in the rest of your life.

First of all you should have patience and tolerence.

You may think that you have  better knowledge from experience. Never try to teach others what you know even if you are right, unless requested. Do not impose yourself on anyone on any subject. Do not give unsolicited opinion all the time. Do not expect every one to follow your opinion.

Do not try to protect your loved ones from all misfortunes of the world.Just love them and pray for them. Do not expect gratitude from children. There are no ungrateful children, there are only stupid parents who expect gratitude from children. If you are not getting your preference, never complain. Instead, accept them without any soreness.

Take care of your spouse all the time who is your soulmate. Keep her cheerful always. Remember that she is the only one lives for you and she is the only one who really needs you all the time by her side.

Do not live in your past. Many elders glorify their past and like their peers to follow that. This is a great mistake. Don’t cry over the past, its gone. Don’t let the past steal your present. Be happy and contented with the present.

Do not complain about your health and woes all the time. Old age issues are common for all. Engage yourself in reading, writing, farming, cooking or a game. These will keep you happy.

As Lord Krishna advised Uddhava in Bhagavatham the woe and distress of man is due to his own mind/attitude. It is not due to his past deeds or his stars or act of God. His own ego or character is the soul reason for the distress.

Hence live humbly to enjoy the rest of your life.
