Have no regrets. The elderly usually don't have regrets for what they did, but rather for things they did not do. The only people who fear death are those with regrets.
A friend recently posted a question about what you would say to your self if you could go back to a certain time. I really struggled with that. Not that I've lived such a perfect life that there was no advice to give to a younger me, but I just couldn't come up with something that seemed significantly important.
The time frame my friend used was fairly short, at least in my long life, just eight years. Now, perhaps if I could go back and stop myself from taking certain paths, I might. The trouble with that is that if I changed my course, I would have missed out on some other wonderful things that came after I made such decisions. So even then, it would be difficult for me to tell my younger ego anything that could change it.
As to that quote above, it's not that I have absolutely no regrets. I do. But I've dealt with those regrets and resolved most of them. I've forgiven others, and I've forgiven myself. I come to grips with shortcomings or overstepping occurring through my life. I think I'm pretty much as "regret free" as possible. And I love this state of being, because I live my life without a fear of death. I haven't feared death for a long time, but now that I've worked through some of those unfortunate events in my life, I'm really free.
So I'm wondering .... would you like to skip back and have a chat with a younger you? How are you in the regret free status?
