What if aging is truly a lie? – by Annie Gelfand



Aging is one of those topics you don’t hear many speak about. It seems that most older people I meet (and when I say older, I mean older than 70- LOL– with the exception of one older gentleman) impel on all of us their fixed points of view as if there is no choice about aging – like it’s natural to get arthritis, to lose your hair, to have aches and pains, to lose your memory, for your skin to sag – I could go on and on.

But what if none of that is actually true?

What if aging takes place BECAUSE we have fixed points of view?

What if we were willing, just for a moment (they will still be there when you get back, I promise), to let go of ALL our fixed points of view about aging? Would we still age? Would we still have to get sagging skin, wrinkles, aches and pains?

As I stand at the threshold of entering my sixties, I am struck with the fact that I still very much feel like I am in my twenties, only MUCH happier. I am still me. I will always be me, regardless of my numerological age.

I wonder if the next time you are in a conversation, would you be willing to watch for everywhere we are either impelling our own fixed points of view about aging (or anything for that matter) at others, or taking on their fixed points of view?

What if aging is truly a lie?
