One of my students recently updated me on Dr. David Sinclair’s research at Harvard, which demonstrates how to slow down aging, and which suggests that we could become younger by activating recently discovered vitality genes, and the student asked for my response to this phenomenon.
To start with, aspiring to be “forever young” is a curse. Instead of holding such aspirations, we would be much better off letting nature manage us, allowing everything to happen in its due course.
The loss of physical strength as we age should have no influence over our happiness in life. It all depends on the extent to which we connect harmoniously to nature and let its forces positively affect us. We could then happily let life flow as it should until our current life ends, and we would then have no regrets.
We should only aspire to be “young” in our hearts, which we can achieve by aspiring to increasingly connect positively to each other and to nature. We would then have an energy and a zest for life similar to children, who constantly discover the world anew, and which would give our lives meaning and joy. We would then see that there is no decline as we age, just more and more of an ascent that brings us closer to the purpose of our lives: a state of complete balance and harmony among each other and with nature.
