Human life can be likened to a flowing river. What is a river? A river in fact is a unique phenomenonof nature. In the river fresh water is being added to the existing water at every moment. This everyday phenomenon is responsible for the freshness of the river water.
In the absence of this continuous flow of newly added water, the river will lose its freshness: it will not be able to maintain its health-giving, nay, life-giving properties.
The same method is adopted by nature with regard to man. As we know, human beings continue to be born generation after generation. Within a period of a hundred years the previous generation is replaced by new men and women. If the old water is replaced with fresh water,in human beings this same occurrence takes place in the form of previous generations yielding place to new generations.
A great wisdom lies behind this system set up in human life by nature. Its aim is that the coming generation should learn its lesson from the experiences of the previous generation. By benefiting inthis way, it may continue its life’s journey in a far better way.This is the precious gift of the previous generation to the new generation. This is why the phrase ‘old is gold’ is often used with reference to the older generation.
For instance, an old father sees that his son is very intelligent but that there is one thing wrong with his temperament, and that is his over-confidence. Due to this he suffers losses in life. On seeing this,the father, in the light of his own experiences advises him thus:
“My son, confidence is good, but over-confidence is bad.”
This advice is very useful to him.
Similarly, another old father sees that his son is impatient. He cannot wait for anything to take place in the ordinary course of events, so he gives him advice, with reference to his own experiences:
“My son, life is one percent action, and 99 percent restraint.”
This advice proves very useful to his son.
