Erle Frayne Argonza / Ra
Why dream of retiring at age 60 or 65?
Has life not gloriously revealed
The exquisite beauty within you
That shines all the more
With each day of doing?
Will retirement not compel you
Into dark dens of nothingness
Push you to the brink
Of cancerous boredom that kills
In every second of its conquest?
Continue to share to all fellowmen
The sublime makings of your trade
Be these in simple or intricate form.
For Life has endowed you
With blessings aplenty
Since the first day that you saw
The undying Light of the sun.

We live in a world of ‘rat race’, working in order to gain money and ensue with daily survival. After decades of laboring, work itself becomes a drudgery rather than a matter of joy as we ought to be living a life as co-creator of the Almighty Providence. At the age of late middle age, the ‘retirement syndrome’ seeps through the psyche, sapping the energies and morale of the person.
That is how bad the situation is on 3rd dimensional Terra. But that situation will end very soon, as Terra ascends to a higher realm, to stabilize finally at 5th dimension where she was originally in primordial times. As a prerequisite for the ascension, we ought to have grasped the virtue of labor, as I’ve said in a previous note.
Retirement syndrome will be a thing of the past in the New Earth. Formal work as we know it today will only be for four (4) hours or so, thus leaving the person ample time to engage in spiritual work (including a conscientious study of the Teaching), artistic work, and enjoy family life as well. Nocturnal rest will only need four (4) hours of sleep or so, and by the time the person wakes up s/he will meditate as prana or chi will be the chief source of energy to propel one to last the day.
Thus, there will be room for pursuing everyone’s creative passions and feel the joy of family life—with angelic babies & tots to child-rear—as well. Who will ever again think of retirement in the new world? Rather than think or retirement, look forward to your ascension into a Self-realized ‘master of wisdom’, hence fully evolving into a cosmic being.
