Here is the astounding case story of a girl, Brooke Greenberg, who lived 20 years but never aged physically beyond a two-year old’s body. The fact that Brooke (and a very few others in the world) lived and existed as a human being in a state of seemingly eternal youth, tells me that aging is a human phenomenon that our species can, and is beginning to, transcend.
She seems to have been functioning with the right brain hemisphere (her intuitive or holistic mind) more than the left. Can it be that that permitted Brooke’s mind to release certain special energies or qualities into her bodily experience which preserved her youthfulness and retarded the human aging process?
The bodies of certain deceased saints, Christian or otherwise, are reported to be incorruptible, being preserved in death to look in the same condition as when they were living. Most mystics are known to retain a quality of youthfulness and freshness glowing through their faces and eyes particularly.
It seems to me that this is the divine destiny of the human race: to evolve and transcend and break free from the limitations of the human condition — to inhabit bodies that are eternally in the glorious prime of youthful maturity, thus reflecting the changelessness and the fullness of life which characterizes their “God-realized awareness.”
We can also speculate that, as enlightened spiritual beings, we are transcending negative and harmful bodily conditions such as diseases. This is clearly the message and example of Brooke’s individual life when she “miraculously” heals from a number of ailments and diseases during her relatively short-lived life, cancer included.
Now, here is the most wonderful news coming from Brooke’s story — the experience of eternal youth, agelessness and perfect well-being is right within our reach NOW. In fact, the fountain of youth is within each and every one of us. We just have to turn its faucet’s spigot in consciousness to let the fountain’s healing waters flow into our experience. That, to me, is the glorious message of Brooke’s amazing life.
