In the true thought of life, years have no power
to take from life that which God has given it.
Years have no power to take from life that which
God has ordained shall be endless, permanent,
enduring, eternal life. When we can conceive of
life as eternal life, we shall see that since God is
eternal life and has made His Son like Himself,
His Son must be given eternal life.
Doesn’t Jesus Christ tell us plainly, “He that
believeth in the Son hath eternal life?” “I give
unto them eternal life; and they shall never
perish.” “For as the Father hath life in himself,
even so gave he to the Son to have life in
himself.” “I came that they may have life, and
may have it abundantly.”
Jesus Christ resurrected his body temple from
the tomb, and he lives in this spiritualized body
now, although we cannot see him with limited,
material vision. He promised that the things he
did all his true followers would do.
It is “Christ in you, the hope of glory.” Christ is
the life principle within each of us, and we must
recognize this to be our ever-increasing life.
You know there is a great deal of overcoming
to do that no one can do for us if we expect to
inherit this wonderful thing that Jesus intended
us to have: eternal life.
We must overcome the bonds that the mortal
mind has made for us. As we study the ways of
eternal life we put aside all bondage to years and
remain in the eternal consciousness of youth
of mind and body that God has given us to
demonstrate His divine plan.
The race mind introduces into the
consciousness the thought of age, unless we rise
out of it by an understanding of the unchanging
life of Christ within us. The age belief says that at
a certain period the body begins to grow a little
sluggish, and to take on flesh, and to be less alive.
The cell structures respond to this error belief,
and the person becomes tired easily, and the
body slows down or suffers from pains. All this,
you see, is mental.
Then there is the physical cause of age.
One who does not understand that the body
requires care day by day often fails to do that
which is truly best for the body. It is a common
error among us that we do not exercise, rest,
work, eat, and drink as we should. Food habits
are perhaps the most direct in their effects on
the system. If you were in a happy state of mind
and doing a reasonable amount of work that
you love and were eating the foods you should
eat, your limbs and feet would not trouble you.
Swelling and stiffness and soreness are evidence
of accumulations in the blood and tissues.
Healing will come through taking the right
mental attitude, and getting right down to the
None of us really likes to see the result of the
belief in age, and inharmony, and sorrow, and
lack of love, and the sense of human weakness.
But it does no good to call them “common” or to
seek to patch them up by methods that shock the
nerves and make demands upon our resources—
mental attitude. The only real help is in raising
ourselves into the Christ Consciousness and
permitting this consciousness to work out into
all the details of our daily living. …
Let go of the mental attitude that causes a
sense of burden—that belief in age that weighs
one down with “years.” You live in God, not
in years; in deeds, not in figures upon a dial.
Instead of thinking “I’m getting up in years,” get
into the youth spirit of joy in living and loving.
