Ageism-The Way To TheLight

Henri says: “When we are able to cast off our fears and come close to the many who have grown old, we see old men and women telling stories to children with eyes full of wonder and amazement.”  He mentions Pope John and Mother Teresa, Rembrandt, Schweitzer, Einstein and Michelangelo as examples of ageless accomplishment and growth.  According to Aldous Huxley writing to his brother, aging can be the way to the light.  “It is hard to feel old…We both, I think, belong to the fortunate minority of human beings, who retain the mental openness and elasticity of youth, while being able to enjoy the fruits of an already long experience.”  Henri maps the way to age to the light.  Do you want to know what they are?  Stay tuned.

  1. I agree, it is arduous to get people to pay attention to this topic because denial and fear are two components of the process of aging. I hope you continue to comment.

  2. Hi: Are you interested in the topic? Do you mind sharing how old you are and your perspectives on age? We would love to know what you think?

  3. My wife and I have been very blessed in our lives. We have also lived thgruoh very tight times ( I. E., blood donations.) We have always felt the love if others. Many times, we picked up the bill for another at a resturant. Other times we paid for another’s groceries. Another time we put together a baby shower for a lady we never met who left an abusive home. Instead of money, we gave a man in the rain a sleeping bag, a coat, and accessories along with a gift card for a meal at Denny’s. When my wife ad I ran into financial issues, we were blessed by people who remained anonymous with a $500 gift card twice. We always asked why. We had a very hard time accepting. Why us?

      Dear Joe:

      It is always great to hear from someone who acts out of concern for others. Keep up all of your great work…I know you are continuing to make a difference in the life of others.
