Tortoise comes in to speak with us about long life. She is a prime example of living through many iterations of change, whether it is climate or food or surroundings.
Tortoise passes along this wisdom:
- Pace yourself. Hurrying does not gain you any time. It simply wears you out.
- Pay attention to your surroundings. You need to find the best place to eat, to rest, to go for entertainment. You cannot see these places if you rush.
- Eat and live simply. There is a peace in living simply that is destroyed by rushing, power, and materialism.
- Be kind to yourself. Know that you are doing what is best for you. If you feel it is not best for you, do not do it.
