New Life #354 – Time And The Transience Of Life
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe
Why does the concept of time become very significant in our lives? How does it affect our development and how can we reach eternity by virtual education?
Time is like a policeman who constantly requires things from us and we are obliged to it.
After the age of 50 a person begins to sink and doesn’t have any great plans anymore. He lives in the present. There were people who wanted leave an eternal mark and became great men in history.
Old people feel that everything is about to end. Even if we live for hundreds of years this will still be a problem. It is not a good idea to concentrate the elderly in old age homes. An elderly person needs to be among everyone, among people of all ages.
A productive old age is when a person is active and contributes to the society he lives in until his last day. Elderly people can greatly help the young, especially in building the right attitude to life.
How can you leave an eternal mark? By discovering the eternal system of connections among us and by living in it. We feel alive when we get what we want. When we grow weaker and don’t want anything we grow old.
The force of receiving gradually diminishes while the force of giving which is aimed outwards keeps growing. Developing the force of giving during our life enables us to feel the eternal system of connections between us.
