Deterioration of senses increases with advancing years;
Accidental disability could come upon one at any time.
Journey of life for a sentient being unfolds surprisingly;
Accepting facts as they are would render them tolerable.


Deterioration due to aging gradually becomes prominent; accidental disability would suddenly take shape. Unavoidable undesirable circumstances are rampant in life. Learn to accept facts without wasting energy and time on complaining and worrying; thus it would be easier to retain clarity of mind for proper handling of matters so that one could step forward into future.
