Whenever we act, we come from a place of assumptions. We tend to either assume there is rebirth and act accordingly, or disbelieve rebirth and act accordingly. The third option of "I don't know" leads to a tension, acting sometimes as if rebirth is true and sometimes as if there is only this one life. Of the three possible approaches, the one that is most skillful for the elimination of suffering is belief in rebirth.
Sotthī hontu nirantaraṃ - May you forever be well.

What Makes an Elder? :
A head of gray hairs doesn't mean one's an elder. Advanced in years, one's called an old fool.
But one in whom there is truth, restraint, rectitude, gentleness,self-control, he's called an elder, his impurities disgorged, enlightened.
-Dhammpada, 19, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.

"Life is a struggle. Life will throw curveballs at you, it will humble you, it will attempt to break you down. And just when you think things are starting to look up, life will smack you back down with ruthless indifference..."
