Is There Life after 80?

The final time I visited my father in Hong Kong, he was in his 80s. He said to me, with downcast eyes and great sadness, “My life is hopeless. I am just sitting here waiting to die.” This image has haunted me for years—is there life after 80? Can there still be hope and meaning even in our advanced years?

Will raw and living food lifestyle change this trend?

Tai
It could. But a person's will to live should transcend their environment. Some people have mastered a good environment. Like Annette Larkins has a wonderful garden in Florida and gets to eat ripe fruit and sprouts and is slowing down the aging process. But some seniors live in confined spaces without family support, so their will to live should come from something more intrinsic than mere food. Look how many old people just lose the will to live and die.

I developed many friends over the years whose most satisfying life began in their 70s when they started qigong. I met so many old Chinese people, mostly women but many men too, who started to youth practicing qigong (Falun gong). One lady in her 70s would have died had she missed one day's pills. She had so many health problems (she had lost some of her stomach from stomach cancer). Then within months, she was off her medication and she lived to her late 90s. I knew her since the 1990s. She got to travel to many countries with her new strength. So many old Chinese women and men got a second chance at life.

anyway, Raw practicalist, you are a good teacher, because you could teach the elderly how to grow microgreens and juice them in their own house, like wheatgrass. One russian lady I knew would go every year for 3 weeks to a wheatgrass spa called Optimum Health institute. She drank wheatgrass juice daily for 3 weeks there. The one year she missed going, she got a stroke! So sad. She was eating dairy, like yogurt daily (hindsight is 20/20 for her). Her stroke was embolic. Anyway, she should have been growing wheatgrass in her apartment. The elderly need special setups that make juicing very easy for them.

The American Indians had a saying that a person's Life was short if they didn't Live well over 100 years of age. 80? That's nothing...

True Tai, as we age, exercise and physical activities to keep the body in shape are critical.
If we have learned those techniques when we were younger it is even more easier to keep practicing as we age.

But some people age well no matter what they eat, I guess it is in the genes.

Secret to a long life? Eating cake and sweets like Masazo Nonaka, world’s oldest living man
Nonaka received the certificate from Guinness World Records in a ceremony at his home in Ashoro, on Japan’s northern main island of Hokkaido, and celebrated the recognition with a big cake. Born on July 25, 1905, Nonaka grew up in a large family and succeeded his parents running the inn.

Really?

That is pretty depressing.

I thought our own free life starts after 60. A life where we can engage in what we want.
Because we had been educated, we had children and they were schooled, married, and on their own, and we have finished working for others.

And because we have recovered our health by following a raw and living food life style, a new life begins.
No attachment, no party affiliation. Just the fulfillment our own inner dreams. And the abundant and joyful life with the grand children.

A new life, our own begins at 60.

Being born again is the goal.
The parents gave us life at the beginning.
We give ourselves life at 60.

Yes

We inherit from our family, our village, or the people who helped us grow up, and we have no choice but take all in.

As we mature we discover that most of the things we learned are no longer correct in our new environment, the world has changed.

And we need to change.

We make a choice to detach ourselves from the past.

It is the birth from water(raw and living and cleansing foods) and spirit (loving thoughts).

"Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God" John 3:5

Life’s journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting HOLY CRAP… WHAT A RIDE!

Why suffer?

At 60 you can grow your own garden and make yourself a raw organic vegetable salad or smoothie or you can order a Kentucky fried chicken.

It is your choice.

C'mon....wrong man to quote...who killed himself.

Mickey Robinson, a sports parachutist, has a more inspiring story as a thrill seeker than Hunter. He had a NDE and came back a changed man.

I have to agree Tai, I did not know Hunter killed himself.

Makes his quote a Hypocrisy, But I have to say its been a hell of a ride so far.

For a person dying at 120, 60 is mid-life. For a person dying at 50, 60 is not mid-life, actually 25 was.
