Our deepest calling is to grow into our authentic selfhood, whether or not it conforms to some of who we ought to be.*
The more learning older adults take on, the faster they seem to learn – the more they become like younger adults.**
Would you like to be young again?
Why not learn something new …
And then keep learning.
It won’t reverse the ageing process that involves
getting slower, with aches and baldness thrown in,
It won’t reverse the decline in fluid intelligence
and the need to make the leap into crystallising intelligence,^
But to see in fresh ways
and understand new truths,
And to be able to give these things to others with joy
to the people we meet on our
Is to feel born again.
