It seems to me when we keep track of our age, counting the years and whatnot, our minds make adjustments to our behaviors. For example, let's say I am 60 years old, and I am aware that I am 60. So I start to behave like a 60 year old. Cant do all of the things I did in my early 40s. My voice becomes strained, I start to walk a little slower, I rest more often, read more, stay in doors, all because I told my mind that I am a senior citizen. But I could easily tell myself that I am 40 and believe it to my core. I am willing to bet I would be out doors more, be more active, have a great sex life, possibly even start to look younger. When someone asks me how old I am, I will tell them in all seriousness that I am 40. My whole perspective will change. It just seems that when we count the years, we are counting down to our deaths, and we act accordingly. We all have our age number lurking somewhere in the back of our minds. Why not completely erase it? Or subtract 10 years of off it? Why count down to our own demise?
