In this clip, the question is asked, “Where’s the balance in that sometimes I just need to maybe relax a little bit more with what is happening versus continually always working to improve?”
AH answers, “There’s a certain attitude of needing to accept what is, sort of making peace with what is, that helps you. But, in saying that, there’s a distortion because we agree with you, we don’t want you to make peace with a diminished life experience, but there’s a difference between making peace with a diminished life experience and finding things about life that are more interesting.”

Abraham Hicks – Making Peace with the Aging Process
HS (Hot Seat): I would like to ask you about aging joyfully, maybe not gracefully, but joyfully?
HS: I know that’s what we’re going, thank you. How do you give up the things of youth that you enjoyed? I remember the basketball games where the children were there every night, we’d play. I remember martial arts, different things that, you know, growing up you could do long into midlife and whatever, and sometimes, you see things happen. I don’t have dark hair anymore obviously. There are things that happen. How much of that is just natural and we just need to go with it? There’s a part of me that doesn’t want to accept any limitations. I made up my mind years ago that I would never let myself let go of my health, that I would take care of myself. And so, where’s the balance in there that sometimes I just need to maybe relax a little bit more with what is happening versus continually always working to improve?
AH (Abraham Hicks): In part, it is a same discussion we just had in that as you move through life experience, not because your physical body is going to diminish and it’s going to force you into a different way of looking at life, but because there is a richness in the subtleties of life that aren’t obvious to you in your youth. In other words, when you first start out, the physical action is the thing that calls you the most, because it’s the obvious stuff. The intellect comes later. And the really conscious alignment with source energy usually comes later still. And so, we wouldn’t we wouldn’t look at aging, or moving through time, as a disadvantage. We would look at it as an advantage. There are cultures that feel that way, where they revere that, but it’s a mindset. Again, it comes around to, there’s a certain attitude of needing to accept what is, sort of making peace with what is, that helps you. But, in saying that, there’s a distortion because we agree with you, we don’t want you to make peace with a diminished life experience, but there’s a difference between making peace with a diminished life experience and finding things about life that are more interesting. In other words, Esther goes to play with the grandkids and she’s just not as happy as she once was down on the floor, it’s just not that much fun, and so, she’s glad that there’s a table that they can play on. And it isn’t that she can’t get on the floor, it isn’t that she’s not perfectly capable of being on the floor, but why be on the floor if you prefer playing the game on the table? And yet, humans want to say, “well you don’t want to let go of youth, you want to stay on the floor”, and we say, you really don’t.
Remember your first car and how you felt about it? That’s a piece of crap… in relationship to what you want to drive today. So, you are refining. You are refining all things and life is giving you all kinds of new preferences all day every day, and the new preferences are where you want to turn your attention to. And when you’re turning towards the new preference, you don’t feel the least bit of lack about leaving the old preferences behind. It’s just not as good. You eat differently, you eat better. You think differently, you think better. There’s all kinds of things about your life that are so much more than they once were because there is no regression and that’s really what we’re wanting to come round to. There is no regression and so much looking back at that younger prior time is a sort of forced regression that is vibrationally out of balance.
