A ideia de que envelhecer é ruim é imposta pela sociedade e nem percebemos o quanto ela nos afeta. Cremes para rugas, plásticas, tintas para cabelo, mudança de visual… Mas vejam o vinho, por exemplo. Ele não é nenhuma estrela dos cinemas. É preciso esperar para colher as uvas na época certa e bastante tempo para que os sabores amadureçam dentro do barril. Sem o tempo, o vinho é um suco de uva na lancheira da escola, o queijo é uma coalhada sem gosto e um diamante é apenas uma pedra de carvão.
Dito isso, sou grato pela idade mental não aparente que transparece por meio dessa blzura que vos fala...bj me liguem seus memes!
Ancient Chinese Principle of Everything
The Old Chinese Creed says "Chang-Ti (Shangdi, Shangti), or the Supreme Lord or Being, is the Principle of Everything that Exists, and Father of all living. He is Eternal, Unmovable, and Independent. His power knows no bounds: His sight equally comprehends the Past, Present, and Future, and penetrates even to the inmost recesses of the Heart. Heaven and Earth are under his government, all events, all revolutions, are the consequences of his dispensation and will. He is pure, holy, and impartial; wickedness offends his sight; but he be holds with an eye of complacency the virtuous actions of men. Severe, yet just, he punishes vice in an exemplary manner, even in Princes and Rulers; and often casts down the guilty, to crown with honor the man who walks after his own heart, and whom he raises from obscurity. Good, merciful, and full of pity, he forgives the wicked upon their repentance and public calamities and the irregularity of the seasons are but salutary warnings, which his fatherly goodness gives to men, to induce them to reform and amend".

Sovereign Lord of the World
Controlled by reason infinitely more than by the imagination, that people occupying the extreme East of Asia, had a system long regulated by the pure worship of God, and the foundation of their moral and political existence laid in a sound, upright reason, conformable to true ideas of the Deity. They had no false gods, or images, and their 3rd Emperor Hoam-Ti (Huangdi) erected a Temple, the 1st probably ever erected, to the Great Architect of the Universe. And though they offered sacrifices to diverse tutelary angels, they honored them infinitely less than Xam-Ti or Chang-Ti (Shangdi) the Sovereign Lord of the World.

The Divine Reason
Confucius (Kong Fuzi) forbade making images or representations of the Deity. He attached no idea of personality to Him; but consider Him as a Power or Principle, pervading all Nature. And the Chinese designated the Divinity by the name of The Divine Reason. "The Chang-Ti (Shangdi) is represented", said Confucius, " under the general emblem of the visible firmament, as well as under the particular symbols of the Sun, the Moon, and the Earth, because by their means we enjoy the gifts of the Chang-Ti. The Sun is the source of Life and Light; the Moon illuminates the World by Night. By observing the course of these luminaries, mankind are enabled to distinguish Time and Seasons. The Ancients, with the view of connecting the act with its object, when they established the practice of sacrificing to the Chang-Ti, fixed the day of the Winter Solstice, because the Sun, after having passed through the 12 Places assigned apparently by the Chang-Ti as its annual residence, began its career anew, to distribute blessings throughout the Earth. It is the Universal Principle and prolific source of all things". _______________________________________________
