When you are in your thirties

Whether you like it or not, you transform. When to cease to acknowledge the value of each moment in your life, then that desire to transform carries no meaning. We sit and plan "We want to retire at this age and do this and that." If you ask the person, "Why do you want to retire?" The answer is "So that I can do what I always wanted to do". So what is it that you've always wanted to do? It's same that you wanted to do when you were three, four, five. But you thought you couldn't do then. Then 16, then 21 and so on.
Once in thirties the figure starts rolling back. If you ask a person 7 years later he still says "I'm in my thirties!" And then once they've almost passed 40s, they say "I'm in my late thirties!" A reluctance to have become older without having done what you've always wanted to do. And then 65- At your retirement you find that you still haven't done what you always wanted to do. Then you come across a 10 year old and see in his eye. He looks very attractive because you see the same passion that you once had. The same thirst and same desire to do what you always wanted to do.
Do what you have always wanted to do. And what is that? That something within you thirsts to be content, to trade curiosity for knowing. Not once does curiosity satisfy the thirst. Whatever you do, it preserves itself as curiosity. Here what I'm referring to, is not thinking; it's feeling. Because that is the first greatest gift and most powerful gift you have. You can feel it.
