forever young

May your hands always be busy
May your feet always be swift
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
May your heart always be joyful
And may your song always be sung
May you stay forever young

in the midst of wanderlust, you begin to wonder whether you are running away from things, or running towards the things you have always been looking for. one comes out of cowardice and being  afraid of thyself, the other comes from the need to figure out the world, to find the right answers to the right questions. the zen philosophy mentions the concept of beginner mind where the mind is constantly open to new concepts and events, and is able to process them through a clean slate mind state. having a forever young philosophy, one that keeps looking for answers every step of the way, while going through a natural growth process might just be next step towards a more balanced mind.
