1 Let me give you one example of letting go. Pretend you are a child at elementary school and given to learn the anatomy of the human body with all its parts, from internal organs to cellular configuration.
2 Pretend you are also taught that your body will degenerate with time and you will become ill in the dying process. If given that much information, (as a child) you will become so overwhelmed that you will become depressed and will not be looking forward to living into old age. However, as a young adult, you are taught (such lessons) to learn and grasp what you will experience in the aging process of life:
3 By the time you reach age 40-50, you may start feeling the aging process. You will see that even though those ailments are realities of life, you will take them pleasantly because you will have time to adjust to the process. You would have grown and learned to live life at its fullest even though there is a natural stage you must go through.
4 By the time you are between ages 60-70, your body will keep slowing down. By now, you have accepted your body, the nature of life, all the beauty and all experiences you have attained, all you have gained, and all the knowledge and wisdom that will help you go through the aging process that cannot be ignored.
5 By the time you reach age 80, you are aware of the ailments you have to go through. Still, you are alive, you want to keep living, you may have grown children and grandchildren you enjoy, and you are happy, although you are in a decadent body.
6 By the time you turn 90, you should be content knowing you have lived life at its fullest, knowing that your body has endured all the learning processes of the evolutionary state of life in itself. You will feel joyful to have gone (this far) through the experience.
7 By the time you are bedridden, you already know of all your accomplishments. You know that you are ready to move forward to a new stage of life after having lived life at its fullest, gone through all the experiences, afflictions, and acceptance of the body. In the end, you have lived happily. You see?
