Daily Meditation for February 5, 2024

There is no doubt that there are lots of advantages to growing older. Think of yourself at your current age. Picture the experiences and challenges you faced in your life so far. All the struggles and good times we encounter bring with it a new awareness and a deeper meaning of life. Each challenge and blessing bring a new perspective on life. With just a little reflection on the things we face in life, we come to realize that events and relationships create a deep sense of interconnectedness. We are so connected and affected by all our encounters. So, we might conclude that age brings wisdom. Wisdom is that gut feeling that directs a person to make good decisions and to move in the way of fullness of life. SO, with age comes wisdom. Let’s welcome our age and our wisdom.
