I am now thinking of a man 65 years of age who is trying frantically to keep young, He swims with young men every Sunday, goes to long hikes, plays tennis, and boasts of his prowess and physical powers, saying;”Look, I can keep up with the best.” He should remember the great truth: As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.Prov.23:7.
Diets, exercises and games of all kind will not keep this man young. It is necessary for him to understand that he grows old or remains young in accordance with his processes of thinking. Your subconscious mind is conditioned with your thoughts. If your thoughts are constantly on the beautiful, the noble and the good, you will remain young regardless of the chronological years.
You grow old when you lose interest in life,
When you cease to dream, to hunger after new truths
And To search for new worlds to conquer,
When your mind is open to new ideas
When you raise the curtains and let in the sun shine
You will remain young and vital.
Try to Learn something new every moment of the day
You will find your mind will always be young.
Be sure that your mind never retires,
retirement can be new venture, a new challenge, a new path
The beginning of the fulfillment of a long dream.
There are countless ways of taking an interest in something worthwhile,
To capture the days of your youth
The Divine candle shines upon your head,
I am wise in many a ways of the Divine Life,
I am a senior citizen .

Do something you have always wanted to do,
” His Flesh Shall Be Fresher Than a Child’s, He Shall Returns To The Days of His Youth.Job33:25.
Old Age really means the contemplation of the truths of God from the highest stand point.
Realize you are on an endless Journey,
Happy The man, Happy He Alone
Who can say
Today His Own.
