"Ageing is often seen as a trial. Yes it is not pleasant to lose the physical and intellectual capacities you once possessed. But old age can also be the best stage of one’s life. For those who have nourished a high ideal during their youth and adulthood, many things improve during old age: understanding and lucidity, for example.
How can this be explained? It can be said that the subtle bodies did not follow the same processes as the physical body. The legs, the eyes and the ears of the elderly begin to betray them, as does their brain in some ways, but the life of their soul and spirit becomes increasingly rich and abundant. It is as if they have finally tasted the fruits of their efforts. So, prepare yourselves, think about enriching yourself within while you are still young, so that later you may taste this abundance of fruits."
"Often it is when human beings have lost everything, spoiled everything and are no longer capable of doing anything with their lives that they decide to devote themselves to the Lord. How can people who would never present themselves before the owner of the smallest company, think that the Lord would want to hire them? When they were young, most people only thought of taking advantage of the pleasures of life; to devote time and energy to some divine work was out of the question. But when they have spent all their energies, when they are stiff with rheumatism, paralysed or senile, they then turn to the Lord.
Don’t imagine that ageing has made them wiser. No, it is just that they have no more energy to go on with their previous life; they have even lost a taste for things. They waited to get to this point before asking the Lord, ‘Do you want me, Lord?’ And seeing all those crippled people, the Lord scratches his head and wonders what he could use them for. If you want to serve the Lord one day, you must think about it when you are still in good shape and full of vitality." (O.M. Aïvanhov)
