Ageing is an art that we all have the ability to learn, but first we most learn to love the gift of life. It helps if we take care of ourselves eat the right foods, exercise, find ways to reduce stress and most of all find a way to be in the present. While the above things are important tools in learning the art of ageing the glue that holds everything together is unconditional love for self and others. The path of longevity is learning to accept the fact that we are a part of everything and everything is a part of us.

Learning to bring balance to the mind, body and spirit is the main objective one must focus on when searching for strategies that will address the aging process. It is necessary to try to find balance when we live in such a complex environment. It is easy to get lost in the matrix and allow our mind, body and spirit to become controlled by external illusions of truth. The first step in understanding the ageing process is learning to truly understand who you are not the image of yourself that you have allow others to create for you.

If you are externally motivated with the false belief that happiness can only come from and external experience you will age faster that a person who can learn to except the concept that true happiness is internal. Nothing outside of you can make you happy it is the value that you place on external things that will provide a short term sensation of internal happiness. You have the ability to learn the art experiencing that sensation of internal happiness without an external stimulate. Learning to do this will lead you to the path of longevity which is a life long but wonderful journey.

I was happy to get the support from those who read my article last week. I invited a number of you baby boomers to join me, family and friends on Saturday August 27th for the Percy Sutton Harlem 5K Run and the NYC Family Health Walk part of the Harlem Week 2011 cultural/economic development festival. I will be the captain for the Harlem Ki Energy Center team (looking for boomers for a nice relaxed run) and co captain for the HNG health walk team. To register visit

I will start writing tips for the The walkers, runners and anyone else who might be interested. I was introduced to a medicinal mushroom call Ganoderma. If you goggle Ganoderma mushrooms you will learn that they have been used for over four thousand of years as a wellness tool in Taoist and Asian healing methods. The herb is also known as the mushroom of immortality at 64 I can use all the help I can get. I am drinking green tea with organic Ganoderma mushrooms as a base everyday as part of my training strategy. Visit my site at to learn more. Please visit the Ki Energy exhibit this Sunday July 31st at the Harlem Week Great Day festival at 122nd and Riverside Drive.

  1. I turned 57 earlier in the week - aging well is a top concern! Ganoderma mushrooms? That's a new one. Will have a look.
