Many people believe there is a connection between age and health, that as one ages, health declines. But this is an error of belief to be overcome, not yielded to.
There is no connection between age and health. Age is a belief of mortal mind that time exists and is measured. Health is a state of divine Mind that man forever expresses as a child of God. Because there is no connection between the two, one can keep their health intact regardless of their age.
Mary Baker Eddy wrote,
“Except for the error of measuring and limiting all that is good and beautiful, man would enjoy more than threescore years and ten and still maintain his vigor, freshness, and promise. Man, governed by immortal Mind, is always beautiful and grand. Each succeeding year unfolds wisdom, beauty, and holiness” Science and Health, p. 246.
Health is spiritual. It is God expressed through us in the form of inspiration, intelligence, wisdom, joy, gratitude, spiritual mindedness, peace and any other quality of God that constitutes true spiritual being. The ability to express these qualities does not diminish over time. It remains forever the same—perfect!
Health does not age. It comes from God and keeps on coming no matter how many years we’ve seen roll by. It is eternal and forever ours to express freely and abundantly without limit.
