GETTING OLD CANNOT BE STOPPED, IT IS AN ETERNAL PROCESS UNDERGONE BY ALL CREATIONS
By Apolinario Villalobos
ONLY FOOLS THINK THAY THEY ARE NOT GETTING OLD…. if what they mean is the way they PHYSICALLY look as even modern technology such as stem cell and plastic surgery do not last, not even drugs touted to prevent wrinkles…all of these have temporary effects on the physical make up of a person. On the other hand, human characters do not deteriorate as they can last till death…they may either be good or bad….they do not have images, but manifestation through action. GETTING OLD IS THE ACCUMULATION OF NUMBER OF YEARS AS ONE LIVES…ACCEPT THAT FACT AS THE NUMBER RECKONS HOW LONG ONE CAN STILL LIVE ON EARTH OR PREPARE ONE TILL THE FINAL MOMENT COMES…NEVER THINK THAT YOU WILL DIE “YOUNG” DESPITE YOUR MORE THAN 70 YEARS OF AGE, UNLESS YOUR MENTALITY HAS SLID BACK TO THE “CHILDISH STAGE”.
Admirably, there are people who try to cover up signs of their age such as application of synthetic color to the hair, applying heavy cosmetic on their face…remove them, and what can be perceived is the glaring truth and signs of accumulated years. This effort has created businesses and occupations which are again, part of life, a good sign of progress that defies stagnation which is good for a civilized world.
Planets get old and collapse….. all earthly creations get old, deteriorate, crumble or die…THIS IS AN ETERNAL PROCESS OF ELIMINATION, ESPECIALLY, FOR THOSE WITH LIFE, OTHERWISE, THE WORLD WILL BE HORRENDOUSLY OVERPOPULATED BY PLANTS, ANIMALS AND HUMANS IF THE “OLD” WILL NOT GIVE WAY TO THE “NEW”. UNFORTUNATELY, SOME PARTIES SEEM TO BE IN A HURRY TO SEE THE “NEW”…SO THEY DID SOMETHING “NEW”.
THE BEST WAY TO LIVE LIFE FULLY IS ACCEPT THE AGING PROCESS, MAKE UP FOR THE LOST TIME BY TRYING TO BE NICE TILL DEATH. IF YOU WILL NOT BE CREAMATED, TRUST THE MAKE UP ARTISTS OF FUNERAL PARLORS TO MAKE YOU FACE NICE TO LOOK AT BENEATH THE GLASS COVER OF THE “BOX” AS YOU LIE IN ALL SERENITY, OBLIVIOUS TO THE CRIES AND HUSHED CONVERSATIONS OF THOSE WHO CAME TO PAY YOU A LAST RESPECT.
