Disciples, this I declare to you: All conditioned things are subject to disintegration – strive on untiringly for your liberation.

You, just as you are, can meet life on its own terms, taking delight in that which is enjoyable without clinging to it while also living with what is difficult and unpleasant without contracting into resistance to it. To dance with life is to meet life on its terms to be at ease, even enjoy the ever-changing interplay without clinging. Philip Moffit: Dancing with Life page 91/92

Horse
Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.

Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.

His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.
- Lokavipatti Sutta

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.

:oops: Yes. My spelling error combined with but another example of how The British and Americans are two peoples separated by a common language. :reading:

What Are the Symptoms of Disease for Hemophilia?
http://www.ehow.com/facts_5712623_sympt ... ase-hemo...
Hemophilia is a disease that affects the blood's ability to clot. Normally when a person begins to bleed, the blood will change from liquid to solid in order to stop the bleeding.
