the worldliness of life becomes like quicksand that sucks you into a spiritual vacuum.
When that happens, we live less and less; we merely stay alive."

Age doesn’t always have to do with it. I have met some very mature young people who almost crave the companionship of older people, and I have met some very ’young’ adults.

Making them both aware of the consequences of irresponsibility is the most important factor here. Lets take the opportunity to convince then that they are captains of their own life. And no matter what, they must be prepared to pay the bill.

If they are far away...

Envision them right in front of you... Do Metta

If they are in your presence...

Be compassionate... smile, open your arms, hold them in your heart (HUG)

...Do Metta

Metta to All... :-)
