A youthful person can push a cart, lift a heavy brick, they are often obsessive and compulsive about details, and are insecure enough to constantly want to “get ahead”. But what happens when you get older and no longer care about “getting ahead?” Society will toss you aside and completely forget about you. This neurosis that society created, and imposed upon you, it now rejects you when you no longer have those traits that helps society build these great big buildings. Society is so ridiculously materialistic and selfish, it is such an incredible joke and echoes of madness.
An older person does not have these youthful traits as much as the younger generation, and as such an older person is not respected and is considered useless. What a horrible mad world we live in! Once you recognize the madness of Society, you can then reject it. It is sort of like after you meet a girl and she seems so appealing. You are sold on her, but after a while, you start to notice something amiss about her. After deep reflective thought and uncovering some information, you find out that she has many undesirable traits. Once you realize who she really is and what she represents, then you are naturally and easily able to reject her.
When you are suffering and in pain, just examine and reflect on where your attachments are. Once you can identify them, and recognize them for what they are, you can then start your efforts to reject what Society has programmed into your desire system. Taking an inventory of all your blessings, taking up a creative hobby to enrich your life, taking control of your own life step by step while pushing the influences of society around you is the first steps toward happiness
