  • If our parents were not born, then our experiences would not be born — for every memorable experience let us be appreciative of our parents
  • All of creation is subject to change, subject to cessation no matter how constant we feel creation is — if our parents lived forever how would they learn they are God’s children
  • To help our parent’s age on account of decay and not disease we should be as healthy as possible — habits are difficult to break and if our parents have a habit to be unhealthy we should let it be
  • The best gift we can give our parents is for them to not have to worry about us, so keep smiling — the next best gift we can give our parents is our undivided time
  • The way our parents acceptingly lived for us when they were young, if we are not engaged in serving Divinity-society-community, we should cheerfully live for them when they are old — by dedicating ourselves to our aging parents we ensure the best in us is brought out
