Right.....and yet we remember nothing about birth, or at least most of us don't.
Old age is old age. In that perhaps it's easier to be old today, there are more things to remove the discomfort, better heating, cooling and perhaps even food. Still, we get ill faster, take longer to recover and, as the Buddha so rightly says, even if you live to be 100 years old, we're still going to face death.
To me living to be 100 years old, is simply more suffering and if I had a choice, I would not want to be in that position. Still, we have no say in any conditions we may develop, how much trouble we'll be to our loved ones, etc. We live, we suffer and we die.....and in between we life. Yours, Lenora
