“Freed from the yolk of ambition and responsibility, released from the hunger of destiny, the elderly have time for themselves….old age is the embryonic phase of the afterlife.”
I love this quote from Willam Bryant’s “The Veiled Pulse of Time.” Although, I don’t think it’s only the “elderly” who can grant themselves this kind of mental and spiritual freedom.
What if aging is our curriculum for becoming more conscious? And, in our process of becoming more conscious, we become more integrated with ourselves and everyone and everything around us.
Yes, we’re growing old, but we’re also growing whole.
