If am a rude to you, how would you most likely treat me back? Will my age matter to you? If your child was vulgar to you, how would you respond? How about if it’s a teenager on the street? So why do we give the rude and nasty elderly people more slack ? Is being an elderly an excuse to be nasty to people? #relationships #family #philosophy #culture #society #attitude #psychology #elderly #abuse #therapy --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thisweeksrehash/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thisweeksrehash/support

Most challenges in life are painful. When we are in the moment, it feels as if it won’t end or we question why we have to go through it. It is not until we pass through that valley that we realize, that what we thought was a set back was more of a set up for better days. #inspiration #philosophy #podcast #life #journal #foodforthought #earl francis #twr #this weeks rehash --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thisweeksrehash/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thisweeksrehash/support

What makes life so valuable? Usually we don't know what we got until we are about to or actually lose it. It is not that we take it for granted, it’s more of thinking that whatever it is, will always be there. It gives a whole new meaning to the phrase Live in the now and appreciate the moment when we realize what it took to get here and how fleeting this moment is. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thisweeksrehash/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thisweeksrehash/support

Quite frankly, presidential elections are dramatic and is more of a spectacle than anything else. Politicians will be politicians no matter the party.  What really affects us most are the local laws that our own city and state come up with. Those are what screws with our everyday lives. I often wonder how it would be like if there were no professional politicians. Instead just regular working men and women who volunteer some of their time to actually serve the people. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thisweeksrehash/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thisweeksrehash/support

I guess the concept of people passing is hard for us to grasp because no one really knows what happens after or is there even an after life.  Every tradition has their own version of a world beyond this one and whatever requirements necessary to have a pleasant life there.  I guess that is why we imagine the after life as something like this life because this is all we know. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thisweeksrehash/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thisweeksrehash/support

Two traveling monks reached a town where there was a young woman waiting to step out of her sedan chair. The rains had made deep puddles and she couldn’t step across without spoiling her silken robes. She stood there, looking very cross and impatient. She was scolding her attendants. They had nowhere to place the packages they held for her, so they couldn’t help her across the puddle. The younger monk noticed the woman, said nothing, and walked by. The older monk quickly picked her up and put her on his back, transported her across the water, and put her down on the other side. She didn’t thank the older monk, she just shoved him out of the way and departed. As they continued on their way, the young monk was brooding and preoccupied. After several hours, unable to hold his silence, he spoke out. “That woman back there was very selfish and rude, but you picked her up on your back and carried her! Then she didn’t even thank you! “I set the woman down hours ago,” the older monk replied. “Why are you still carrying her?”  - by Jon J.

It turns out, when we have a full stomach, when we are not busy looking for food or surviving the elements, we tend to find other issues and drama to deal with.  Idle hands and minds either tend to create something amazing or commit horrific crimes.
