This is funny, just received this joke:
"Just look at this body," boasted the fit old man to the group of young people. "Every morning I do fifty push-ups and thirty sit-ups and walk two miles. I'm fit as a fiddle! And you know why? Because I don't smoke, I don't drink, I don't stay up late, AND I don't chase women!"
He smiled, his eye gleaming.
"And tomorrow, I celebrate my 95th birthday!"
"Oh, really?" said one sarcastic youngster. "How?”


It’s funny because Saturday I was feeling particularly good, and I remembered Pursah had said that J says when you have nothing to forgive, don’t chase it up, instead celebrate the fact… And I had the same problem: how!? I don’t drink or party.
How do you celebrate when earthly "pleasures" no longer are interesting to you?

I looked up celebrate, and found out one definition is "to make known publicly; proclaim”. So I wrote about thankfulness.

Note that I don't think there is anything sinful or destructive about any of those things, it's just that they don't interest me very much, never did much, and do less and less.

(I used to say: "I don't smoke, drink, or chase cars".)

what a close to peaceful way of life, wonderfu to hear. Earthly pleasures are wonderful, maybe they all serve a purpose at a different time in one's journey. To know what you want, you have to know what you don't want. Thank you for celebrating, I certainly enjoy it.
