To Age Gracefully

Simran Joshi


Is there any way to look fresh, youthful and energetic forever? Meditation gives calm but doesn’t always help to look young. I have seen many people who meditate but don’t always look young.

Dear Simran,

The question is, how to age gracefully, not painfully. As you live a dignified life, in alignment with God, with appreciation for others, with joy, with gratitude to God for the gift of life, you will radiate divine joy.

Your consciousness is who you really are; looks mean very little, other than the look in the eyes. Strive to have a fresh, youthful, energetic consciousness, and express it through your eyes.
