For most of our evolution, humans knew aging as painful and progressive decline. Coping with the inevitable scourge of senescence, we were, sometimes at least, treated more respectively by family, strangers and society (i.e., dismissed as real equals).

Charismatic megachurch preachers, spirituality pop stars, the latest neuroscience proclamations, and the multiplicity of religious theologies…with so many competing versions of "truth" the world creates another Tower of Babel, ignoring the mystics who speak only one language - the language of direct experience.

In the silence of a Sunday I hear the ticking of the aging clock - time slowly passing, the clock itself deteriorating, the whole experience becoming a peaceful river carrying me to the end, and the beginning.
