Overcoming the "conspiracy" of age

One of the greatest conspiracies against humanity is the generally accepted belief of growing old. How important it is for us to refuse to let it creep up on us! One might say age is like the fox that creeps into henhouses at night. To remain undetected, the fox slips in under cover of darkness. As the years go by, so might the mesmerizing claims of "old" age slip in. Would not this darkness be mental—ignorance of man's real, immortal selfhood and his God-given dominion?
