When asked what his secret to longevity is, 145-year old Mbah Gotho from Indonesia simply mentions “patience”.
Patience is a quality that is similar to ‘allowance’ and I like the idea of living life not resisting everything or anything that comes up but simply opening ourselves to a state that is so encompassing that all is allowed. (All possible choices)
Easier said than done, sure. But at that point what is impossible?
Humanity is not even at the infancy stage in what it will aspire to and ultimately achieve.
Of course there are a few around who are much older than Mr. Gotho but that is not important.
The question is: how long do you want to live?
