Beginnings

Chronological age: Starts the moment you were born and continues to progress with every second of every day.
Biological age: Refers to how old you feel / how healthy you are. It’s influenced by all the (micro!) lifestyle choices you make. Those little things add up and they’re either making us “younger” or older.
(Brian Johnson)

Numbers and dwelling on age is a trap. There is no age, it’s living each moment to its fullest.

I am an ageless spirit. I grow more alive every day and every year. (Alan Cohen, A Daily Dose of Sanity)

We turn not older with years, but newer every day. (Emily Dickinson)

I am renewing every day. (Yann Hnautra)

Every successful man or great genius has three particular qualities in common.
Their minds grow more brilliant as they grow older, instead of less brilliant. Great men’s lives begin at forty, where the mediocre man’s life ends.
The genius remains an ever-flowing fountain of creative achievement until the very last breath he draws.
The thinking of creative and successful men is never exerted in any direction other than that intended. That is why great men produce a prodigious amount of work, seemingly without effort and without fatigue. (Walter Russel)

The best is yet to come.


Fragments from imaginary dialogues

“How does life feel at 40?”

“I like people’s incredulous expression when I tell them I’m 40. There’s something I wrote a long time ago:

Imagination is limited by experience.

To me it’s fascinating how different life looks like at this age than I could possibly have imagined. I would never ever have imagined that I’d be in London, engaged on a deep Path of Mastery, and that the name of this Path would be… Parkour!!

The quotes at the beginning express how I feel about life at this moment in my life. Some people consider themselves ‘old’ at this age. I think that’s a self-limiting belief.

I feel like my life has just BEGUN.

I consider chronological age meaningless, and in terms of biological age, I’m approaching the energy level of the child that I was (and am).

I am a Parkour Athlete / Artist, and that’s something I intend to be… FOREVER.

And, most importantly, those are not just ideas… I’m LIVING them.”
