Newness versus Age
There is very little pleasant to say about age. Most of the time people are either rebelling because they are too old or too young. Children can't wait to become old enough to do what they want, and adults regret they are too old to do what they want. Why is age such a problem? Is there an answer?
The answer to age is renewal. Age is a law of matter, or mortal mind. Newness is the law of Spirit. The expression of oldness or of newness is a question of deciding whether we are going to live by matter or by Spirit. Which are we going to have confidence in and subject ourselves to? This decision, more than birthdays, determines the extent of our freedom from the limitations of age.
What happens if we decide that matter is real and deserves our undivided attention? We will spend all our energy and interest trying to make it please us. Eventually we will come smack up against the passage of time, which is the other side of the same coin. Matter and time are hard masters. They make a lot of promises but pay few dividends.
