How Old Are You?
If your first inclination is to give a number based on the day you were born in this human body, you would be mistaken.
Maybe the body you inhabit has only been here a certain length of human time, but the soul that is doing the inhabiting has been around since the very beginning of existence.
You say that's nuts? Really? Okay. I get it. How can I say such a ridiculous idea is possible? Where is my proof of such a claim? Back it up or shut up, right?
I completely understand your hesitation in believing such a notion.
It is based on the fact that we are all connected to the same source of power, the very essence of our spiritual being. Fact? What fact? Prove it you say.
This could turn into a religious debate if I allow it, but the only thing I am going to say; is that if you have no problem believing the bible or the koran or the torah, then what I am postulating here should not be that difficult to grasp.
Postulating (claim something) is all I can offer, since everyone will say pictures or it ain't real.
Faith in what you cannot see, but know to be true, deep in your soul, is for each to find out for themselves.
Just keep in mind what it is you have faith in, where did that faith originate?
Was it something you were taught as a human? Were you raised in a specific environment? Did you get beaten down with a cultural baton?
If your answer to any of these questions is yes, then how can your faith be justified? My faith comes from within. I resist all temptation to allow the human construct the control, I choose to look within and see the light that I have shining bright.
More and more, daily, as I traverse this human conditional atmosphere, I find myself looking within for the guidance I need.
I find myself wanting to grab whoever I can and shake them free; free from their desire to be overcome by this Earthly dimension, trapped by their own fear.
Sure, I am guilty of acting out and being obnoxious, falling into the trap of my human condition, but that does not last very long.
Why? Because the soul I want to be is more important than the human I am.
How old am I? As old as infinity with only one goal, to be the brightest light I can be and to maintain the light I am.
PS. For those of you that find my colorization childish and offensive, I apologize. It is not my intent to cause you any harm, I just get tired of the same old boring type and try to interject some color for effect.

Time is a creation of our own consciousness, the one consciousness. The intention of our/ the one consciousness is focused into a creation. The waves of potential form into form as the result of the focus of intention. How old am I / we? All I can say is that I/we, were here from the beginning and will always be here. There is no end. The channel just changes. OR. There will be other things, far beyond our present understanding. If you can let all that really soak in, you can't help but smile. PEACE.
