Hate the Idea of Being an Elder? Try this Poem.

May 29, 2023

Recently, I saw this poem by Arden Mahlberg in the newsletter for The Center for Conscious Eldering.

Be An Elder

Cherish knowing, Relish not knowing

Take joy in finding, Muse at losing

Celebrate remembering, Humor forgetting

Utilize courage, Explore fear

Be cautious with strength, Respectful of weakness

Savor oneness, Befriend separation

Appreciate fullness, Explore emptiness

Recognize satiation, Listen to hunger

Enjoy ascent, Value decline

Be happy for those with good fortune, Listen to the unfortunate

Smile at beauty, Muse upon ugliness

Relax into brightness, Inquire of darkness

Be humble in wisdom, Compassionate toward superficiality.

Go deeper with a workshop, in person or online.
