While one is in the physical world, he goes through three states: young, adult, and old. In the Divine world, these three states symbolize the three great virtues: young people represent Love, adults wisdom, and old people - truth. Therefore, if a young person cannot acquire life, Love has not yet come in him. If an adult does not acquire knowledge, wisdom has not yet come in him. If an old person does not acquire freedom, truth has not yet come in him. If you are young, Love and life are with you. If you are adult, knowledge and wisdom are with you. If you are old, truth and freedom are with you. Your hair and your beard are grey. It does not mean anything. That old age is of a special nature. Old age means a state, in which a person is freed from all constraints of life. An old person is free to do whatever he wants. An old person may rejuvenate as much as he wants. He becomes a magician. He may do whatever he wants.Whom do we call young? While Saturn is not manifested in someone, while he is jolly, he is young. Once Saturn manifests in him, he is old. Till which age one is young? Even if one is 100 years old, if he is jolly and in good mood, he is young. One, who becomes downhearted, is not young. In this sense, everyone can answer himself whether he is young or old. If your wounds heal easily, this indicates that your thoughts and feelings are good. In this situation, you are taken as a young person. One, whose wounds do not heal easily, is old. Doctors will say that the reason for that is the impure blood. We make a different conclusion, and namely: old people have impure blood. Young peoples blood is always clean. So, you shall know that old age means neither the physical appearance of somebody, nor the years, but it means impure blood. Old is one, who is hindered by evil. One, who is not hindered by the evil, is young. I will tell you something, about which you have not thought: there are conditions for aging in young people. It is the weak side that there are conditions in young people to grow old, to break God's law, and if they break it, they will grow old. There are conditions in old people to rejuvenate. It is the Divine side in old people. While you are young, if you do not understand God's law, you should know that there are conditions to grow old. And once you get old, you will die. It is the human side. Once you get old, if you are aware of the fact that there are conditions in the old age for rejuvenation, it is the Divine side you will rejuvenate. But if you lose that condition in the old age, you will not rejuvenate. Why have you grown old? It is because you do not know that old age is hidden in your youth. And when you grow old, you again do not know that youth is hidden in your old age. You do not know two things: first, you do not know that youth is in old age, and when you grow old you say, We grew old. What we thought, what we were, and what we are now! - and then you again do not know that youth is hidden in the old age. So, when a person is born, the devil is hidden in the youth. And you have to find that devil, drive it away, and not let it show.Youth, it is a movement; old age is stagnancy, a holiday. A body is in stagnancy if it is old, and it is in motion if it is young. Everyone, who does not move, is old, and everyone, who moves is young. Everyone, who does not think is old, and everyone, who thinks, is young. Everyone, who does good, is young, and everyone, who does not do good, is old. Scripture says that a person is old if he does not do good. There are two personalities in humans: there is one that is old, and there is one that is young. Dissatisfaction in people is old age, and satisfaction in people is youth. Joy is youth, and sorrow old age. Health is youth, and disease is old age. Wealth is old age, and poverty is youth. One, who is sluggard, is old, and diligent people are young. Diligence is youth, idleness is old age.
