Aging well, according to Thomas Moore, becoming more of yourself - to be profoundly old and profoundly young.
Referring to Igor Stravinsky, Thomas Moore says "Be true to your soul's age, not the numbers or the sight of weakness or ill health. To the soul, these are meaningless." Aging well - a process of humanization, of becoming more spiritually and culturally complex - Jung's individuation, Keats' soul-making.
I would like to share with you the words Thomas Moore wrote in my copy of Ageless Soul: "Always go deeper than seems possible." I refer back to this lesson while living my daily life, being my age, actualizing more of my "seed material" (TM) as I continue the aging process.
