a small insight

It has been said that the sages had spoken over 2,500 years ago on all matters of the human condition.  They had found the ways forward for man to resolve issues which beset each and everyone throughout his/her life, regardless who the person is, wherever, whenever....

If conservatively we say each lifetime is 50 years, then that period of 2,500 years ago is like 50 lifetimes stacked end-to-end, connecting the lessons from one lifetime to another in a line of 50 lifetimes.  

So how come after so much suffering, learning and experiences, the same problems are still faced by each individual today?

It must be because we have not really learnt and passed on the lessons taught by the sages.

The benchmark for Man seems to now be to learn the lessons passed on by the sages and learn them fully and exercise them, then pass them on, as a set of codes for proper human conduct.

I had the above insight the other night after realizing how little i've changed since my youth.

50 lifetimes is a long time; joined one to the other, the rate of success in being able to conduct oneself peerlessly should have been enormous. Yet....

This is my little contribution to all of you;  maybe someone else has also written before like this; i don't know.

Carry this small torch for me, as i pass on into the twilight of life.

no

yesterday's a lesson; tomorrow, another test;
but, today, well-lived, makes for a kinder passing mark.
