“Many say that growing older causes
the mind to wander, the body to stiffen, and the heart to harde.
That is not the case for us.
As we become sages, our minds begin to see the oneness of all things,
our bodies become more flexible and supple
and our hearts soften in love.
You can train your mind through meditation, reading
and mental exercise.
Your can train your body through yoga, Tai Chi
and physical exercise.
You can train your heart through listening, accepting
and forgiving all.”
from: The Sage’s Tao Te Ching, by William Martin
