Retirement- A New Venture

You are as young as you think you are. You are as strong as you think you are. Be sure that your mind never retires. It must be like a parachute which is no good unless it opens up. Be open and receptive to new ideas. I have seen people of 65 and 70 retire. They seemed to rot away, and in a few months passed on. They felt that life was at an end. Retirement can be a new venture, a new challenge, a new path, the beginning of the fulfillment of a long dream. It is inexpressibly depressing to hear someone say, "what shall I do now that I am retired?". He is saying in effect, " I am mentally and physically dead. My mind is bankrupt of ideas." All this is a false picture. The real truth is that you can accomplish more at 90 than you did at 60 because each day you are growing in wisdom and understanding of life and the universe through your new studies and interest. When your mind is open to new ideas, new interests, and when you raise the curtain and let in the sunshine and inspiration of new truths of life and universe you will be young and vital. "Give your attention to loving and living life. You are a son of infinite life which knows no end!"
