Couldn’t do much today because of the ol’ back.
Aging certainly has its drawbacks, but its benefits outweigh its negatives … in my opinion.
The wisdom that one has gained over the years should compensate for the physical detriments old age provides. But there is much to be said about staying mentally young and vibrant in spite of what the physical body does. However, there is also much truth in the fact that the physical body can affect the mind.
We’ve all heard the answers to fighting old age as long as we can, but few heed their suggestions. The key to keeping the mind and body invigorated into “old” age … whatever that means … is diet and exercise for the physical body and the real truth for the brain.
A brain that plateaus in the way it is used by the individual will become “old” and virtually useless to the experience of the person. ”Plateau” generally refers to a quiescent period; a letup, respite, or lull. Like any other organ in our body, lack of use leads to atrophy and weakness.
The real truths revealed in the Marvelous Work and a Wonder® will help a person’s mind stay alive and vigorous. The idea that our true self is much more intelligent, much more humane than we currently are, motivates us to search for this self. The search this self is a mental exercise that can last a lifetime.
And if one ever figures out his or her true self, then that one can use the mental exercise to figure out others, not what others appear to be, but who they truly are.
There’s no excuse for a mind to atrophy and deteriorate when the MWAW has opened up a whole other realm of reality and consideration.
So while I’m getting fat laying on my back because of my back, my mind finds a lot of exercise … then I turn on the television and go to sleep.
