Mehdi Hassan Ghazals - 14

Life can begin at 50/60 ...70/80

3. Money is important: 

Money is essential for meeting the basic necessities of life, keeping good 
health and earning family respect and security. Don't spend beyond your 
means even for your children. You have lived for them through out and it is 
time you enjoyed a harmonious life with your spouse. If your children are 
grateful they should take care of you. But never take it for granted. 

4. Relaxation and recreation: 

The most relaxing and recreating forces are healthy and religious attitudes, 
good sleep, music and laughter. Have faith in God, learn to sleep well, 
love good music, and see the fun side of life. 

5. Time is precious: 

It is almost like holding a horse's reins. When they are in your hands, 
you can control them. Imagine that every day you are born again. Yesterday is 
a payed cheque. Tomorrow is a promissory note. Today is ready cash. 
use it profitably. Live this moment. 

6. Change is the only permanent thing: 

We should accept change — it is inevitable. The only way to make sense 
out of change is to join the dance. Change has brought about many pleasant 
things. We should be happy that our children are blessed. 

7. Enlightened selfishness: 

All of us are basically selfish. Whatever we do, we expect something in 
return. We should definitely be grateful to those who stood by us. But, our 
focus should be on the internal satisfaction and happiness we derive by doing 
good to others, without expecting anything in return. 

8. Forget and forgive: 

Don't be bothered too much about others' mistakes. We are not spiritual 
enough to show our other cheek when we are slapped on one cheek. But, for the sake 
of our own health and happiness, let us forgive and forget them. Otherwise, 
we will only be increasing our BP. 

9. Everything has a reason; a purpose: 

Take life as it comes. Accept yourself as you are and also accept others 
for what they are. Everybody is unique and right in their own ways. 

10. Overcome the fear of death: 

We all know that one day we have to leave this world. Still we are afraid 
of death. We think that our spouse and children will be unable to withstand 
our loss. But, the truth is that no one is going to die for you; they may be 
depressed for some time. Time heals everything and they will carry on. 

Regardless How Far The Journey Is OR How Capable We Are, We Do Our Best To 
Reach Our Goal. This Is Perseverance At Its Best ...

<"If your children are
grateful they should take care of you"> ????

This is the most sadistic attitude a parent can have.

If someone believes in this, they have to ask to themselves -> Did parents have children just so that there will be someone to take care of them when parents are old?

Children should take care of parents out of their own decision. Elders can start to conduct themselves worthy of such a decision.
