Aging…Maturing…Getting Older…

"You only hurt yourself when you're not expanding and growing.
Many people can't stand the thought of aging, but it's the crystallized thought patterns and inflexible mind-sets that age people before their time. You can break through and challenge your crystallized patterns and mind-sets.
That's what evolution and the expansion of love are really about."
Sara Paddison, The Hidden Power of the Heart

Is it possible we have so attached to the commercialization of youth and physical beauty that we have disowned the value of wisdom, maturity, experience, and the healing power of our elders?

Is it possible that you are participating in the mass conscious beliefs without realizing that you are losing value rather than gaining anything?

Is it possible that our culture is like the teen who thinks he knows it all and can do it all on his own, making the wise ones seem superfluous?

Is it possible that we are throwing away the richness, the abundance, the unlimited resource of infinite intelligence, unconditional love and true hope of greater things yet to come?

Is it time to be pleased with our mellowing, ripening with age?

Is it possible that the best and easiest times are those as we grow in faith and generosity and kindness?

Is it possible that our families will work once again when we bring them together with the elders?

Consider these things and we may begin to lose our fear, resistance and separation from one another.

Loving us all as One,
Betty Lue
