Subject: Why we age, IMHO

I have my own theory about why we age.

When I look at someone who I think is about my age, I find myself thinking things like, "hmmm--they have more gray hair than I do", or, "wrinkles around the eyes too, I see". Thoughts are always manifesting themselves when I see people, such as, "I wonder how old they are?" or "he looks about as old as my father".

With thoughts such as these, how can I ever expect to skip ageing? I see the wrinkles 50 year old's wear and I know that's how many I should wear at that age. Every year when my birthday comes around I know I'm a year older. The media tells me my body will start to break down and will need this or that medication. How can I avoid it?

I have read that if we stroke our bodies and praise them, if we imagine them healthy and wrinkle free, they will become the way we imagine them.

Remember, "the words I AM, whether thought felt or spoken, release the power of creation immediately." (The Magic Presence by Godfrey Ray King) How many times a day, week, or month do you say something like, "I'm tired, I've worked a long day, and I'm tired." or kiddingly remark when a young person make's a remark about being old, "you think you're old now....", you know what I mean.

With a belief system such as this, with this mutually agreed upon belief system, how can we possibly learn to stay young.

Just don't give up, keep trying.
