HUMAN CONTAINERS CONTAIN WHAT? by (me!) sandra, tvgp

again... not sayin' anythin' new here    -just validating.  comtemplating.    spirit vs. flesh.

for several years now, my brother has been tellin' me,  "when i look in the mirror, i see a 47 year old (48, now 49),  -but i feel the same INSIDE   -i feel inside like i did when i was 20...

and with great humor, ray orrock, wrote about his theory,  (i'm doing this from memory/book is in a box in the garage):  that everyone stays 19 years old inside...   stops at around 19, while their body marches on...

and i have a similar experience    -46 on the outside...   but my appearance/chronological age feels different on the inside
   today, inside i feel younger/stronger than my outside.   but there were times in the past, my outside appeared younger/stronger than i felt inside

point is:   there is an actual disconnect we can experience, isn't there...   from our human containers; and what it is they contain.    -sometimes, the two exist in harmony    -i am 5 years old; i look and feel 5 years old

and sometimes...    one quite ahead or behind the other.  

fascinating isn't it.

i agree with everyone who says "we are spiritual beings having a human experience"    -not the other way around.

Love the post, and so true. I don't feel much over 20--sometimes even younger. Having a sense of humor keeps you feeling young. So does marveling over simple things, looking at them so closely, it's like seeing them for the first time.
