Bodybuilding is actually a very good sport, especially for older fogies who want to prevent sarcopenia. But when you get competitive and want to win at all cost, then it’s a different story. In my second novel Like a Dewdrop, I wrote on the theme of impermanence and how it doesn’t matter to people who just want a moment of glory. There is nothing right or wrong here.
It’s wonderful to be able to decide how we want to live. It’s equally wonderful to be able to decide how we want to die.
It’s up to the individual to make the best use of this life to achieve what he wants from it. It doesn’t matter how long or short his life is. We may be afraid to go the same way, but how do we know, he may have no regrets. To have lived a glorious moment like a dewdrop makes this life worth living, regardless of how long or short it is.
