Judging By Appearances

"There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy." Hamlet, William Shakespeare

"Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him." (1 Corinthians 2: 9)
As I was going to catch a bus, as I do, I saw some young guys standing at the bus station. One said to me, "Excuse me, my friend likes you."

Oh, come on, what do you take me for, a cradle snatcher? I said to the boy, "Tell your friend I'm flattered but I'm old enough to be his grandmother."

It's an interesting concept, aging. We have various programmes within us that kick in each stage of our lives. The programme makes you appear as a foetus, then grow until you're too big to be in the womb. As a baby you learn to move your legs, crawl, and walk. You grow teeth and hair. You start getting taller. You replace your milk teeth with permanent teeth. As a teenager, or even younger, other organs develop. You continue to grow until a point when you stop growing. Then you're considered a mature adult.

After that it's downhill all the way. While you could try and slow down or mask the aging process, you can't avoid the inevitable. Our lot as humans is to grow old and die, or so the programme would have us believe.

When you awaken to the truth that you are pure consciousness that is unchanging and eternal, you realise that you are perfection therefore nothing can be added to or taken away from who you are. Suddenly, you're no longer concerned about what the experts say we should eat to survive. You're not bothered about additives and preservatives, nor do you care about conservatives. (joke) To the extent that you are willing to accept the truth of your perfection, you will embody it in a physical form.

Back in the human realm, things are not that simple. Is anything? You still have to deal with people who have their views about what someone should look and act like at a particular age. If you look too young for your "age" you're not taken seriously. If you appear to be too "advanced" for your "years" you're considered a prodigy. It's obviously acceptable for someone who is advanced in wisdom to look the part.

As more and more people let go of who they think they are and let the God Self/pure Consciousness reveal and express as them, we are going to experience more people who are going to appear not only ageless, but are going to be around for a very long time. Society is going to have to rethink many of its ideas including relationships.

Hmmm! I don't know if I could ever entertain the idea of dating a teenage looking Spirit Man though.

I am Consciousness,
