This month I turn 35 and I'm embracing aging. Deepak and Oprah did a wonderful meditation on their latest 21 day meditation challenge on living agelessly. Below is the opening for why meditation helps you live in your youth and transcend time.
"Today, we explore the concept of living agelessly. It may be challenging to see ourselves as ageless beings that grow in wisdom and spiritual fulfillment in each passing moment. Yet, living in the present enables us to literally stop time. Meditation helps ground us in the present and, physiologically, increases growth hormones, which slow down the external signs of aging. As we engage in activities that bring us joy and choose to live from an open-heart awareness, we approach our lives with a new, positive perspective and truly live agelessly.
Our centering thought for today is: I am ageless and timeless.
Consider an activity that really excites you. Make the commitment to engage in that activity for some time every day. Witness how time stands still when you indulge your passion and you become firmly rooted in the present.
