Do You Believe in the Fountain of Youth
Author: Greg Tharpe
Ponce De Leon was searching for the fountain of youth; although, he never found it, because it does not exist in the physical world. However, it does exist within you. Your genetic code, your diet, exercise and spirituality are all relative; however, your perception of time is the core influencer. Your perception of time can assist you in slowing the aging process when looked at from a spiritual perspective, where time ceases to exist.
“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” [John 8:32 KJV]
The truth is that longevity, energy, vitality and youthful vigor are all a part of your spiritual DNA. These are the attributes of the God in you manifesting without interference of the Ego or your mind’s perception of reality being in disagreement with this truth.
When accepted as truth, this belief increases your vibration, energy and faith to the level whereas it minimizes and eliminates stress, strain and worry in your body and in your life. These are higher vibrations or beliefs, which cause your body to maintain a youthful appearance; while the lower vibrations or beliefs cause premature aging.
In the physical world, time (seconds, minutes, hours, days, months and years) is really just an illusion that promotes aging. Just like everything else, it has its pros and cons and can be an asset in many ways, but typically, it can cause your body to age at a faster rate because of the perception of the mind.
We live in a time capsule where age, days, months and years are looked upon as a measuring stick for getting older. We are constantly being reminded that time is something that is passing and causing us to physically age.
Believe it or not, in spiritual reality, there is no such thing as time. It does not exist. There are no clocks or calendars keeping track of time. The time concept is a human perception. It comes from the mind and is not in agreement with the spirit. “Now,” this current moment, is the only time there really is.
There is no separation in space and time, everything happens in the Now. There is no yesterday, today or tomorrow. The only time you can experience is Now. Everything that is happening in your life happens in the Now. If you say, I am going to do something today, tomorrow, next week or next year, when you do it will always be Now.
When age is perceived in the mind, it is materialized in the body. Therefore, when you identify with age and birthdays from the perspective of getting older, it causes the subconscious to manifest age in the body. When you identify with age, you give age power to age you.
However, when you do not perceive birthdays, days, months and years from the perspective of aging and time, you take the power away from age. Then, it has little or no effect on the breakdown of the body and you create your own personal “fountain of youth.”
Get out of the time capsule and stop the aging process. Instead, associate age with youthfulness, vitality, zest, energy, and vigor. If you wish to continue celebrating birthdays, look at it as being whatever your physical age is, but “younger” each year. For example, on your next birthday, proclaim that you are XX years young, instead of XX years old.
Eliminate the aging and time continuum from your perception of reality. As you change to your new mindset, you will plant seeds of youthfulness in your soul, which will manifest your own personal fountain of youth and reap a youthful look for many years to come.
