    Does that mean it didn't happen?

    How can you have remembered something once if you don't remember?

    Sadly, this whole thread makes perfect sense to me...

    Speak that when your dead. That will be worse, unless you are already suicide victim.

    Are you trying to say you're 60?

    As the years moved by and the older I have grown, the perspective of my life changed dramatically. One of the most enjoyable aspects of this part of my life is that with my ever increasing understanding of the spiritual background of life, many issues that once seemed all-important have simply fallen by the wayside. To me, growing older is the greatest gift that life has to bestow upon any of its children. In my view, it is not something to be afraid of, but to be looked forward to, relished and enjoyed, when it slowly but surely sneaks up on us.

    Having reached this time of life, any wisdom we gained is a reward for battling our way, as best we knew how to, through the many obstacles and hardships that are inevitable on our pathway through our present lifetime. I found that the situation eased considerably once I had found the awareness that if help is required it has to be asked for, and that as soon as we reach out for the helping hand of God and the Angels, they draw ever closer to us. I do hope that this will also make our passage back into our true home an easier one, when the time for letting go of this world has come. The earlier in life one starts with this, the better and more effective it is bound to be.

    I now no longer have any qualms acting out the real me and fully being the person I always wanted to be. When I look into the mirror, sometimes I am astonished at how young I still look. Yet, there are also times when I seem to look and feel a million years old. Never mind, I tell myself, that’s probably because I am. I am sure you know exactly what I mean. Most of the time, however, I feel amazingly young inside this body of mine, younger than I ever did before in my present lifetime. This must have something to do with the fact that having experienced difficult times – having reached my age, who hasn’t? – one gets more in touch with one’s immortal and ageless spirit and soul. Apart from that, equipped with the learning I have found along my way, life has become much easier in so many ways.

    Most of all I enjoy the knowledge that it is not death that looms ahead when we leave our physical bodies behind, but a rebirth and release into our true home, where loved ones are waiting for us. We shall then all stand before each other in our true roles as children of God and siblings in the vast family of all life, rather than as grandparents, parents and children. I hope that on this level of life a proper reconciliation will be possible and that the chains and shackles of Karma will be dissolved once and for all through true forgiveness that grows from this understanding.

    I do work with kids in the theater, and I see them with Iphones these are 4th-7th graders, and when I see them in my head I always say"Kids today and the iphones, when I was right I had an old cellphone that only did calling." It makes me feel old.
