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.
