Never Old

Tips on Keeping Mind & Body Young

By Jesse Anson Dawn



Jesse Anson Dawn (accurately photographed at age 68), author of the national award-winning book Never “Old,” plus The Rejuvenator’s Bible, speaks out about a most stirring subject: how to personally control the unwanted effects of “aging.”


Presently answering the question:

“Why do TV sitcoms frequently portray so-called ‘elderly’ people as being grumpy and resentful, and how can we overcome the negative influences of being perceived like that?”


Dear Readers,

First of all, I will begin my response to that question by quoting the author and actress, Joan Collins, the outspoken, anti-ageism activist who, during a televised interview, said this:

“Despite the notion that so-called ‘old folks’ are, for the most part, ill-tempered ‘fuddy-duddies,’ the way I see it is this: no matter what your age is, the only time you are fully dressed is when, along with your clothes, you also wear a smile.”

Yes indeed, I totally agree with that delightful piece of advice, especially since I’ve discovered that a smile, if emanated at the start of my day, is more ((positively energizing)) than the caffeine in a cup of coffee or tea.

But of course, a little smile doesn’t make the world go round, but maybe it can make the ride more enjoyable, along with helping to quell the unhealthy effects of {chronic depression}.

As I increasingly realize that one’s outward appearance, more than anything else, is a perception-based vision — a mental projection that can quickly shift from one (situations-caused) look to another, depending on what thoughts are entering our minds.

Thus by realizing the powerful effects of what we focus on, [inner-resentment] can, quite effectively, be quelled by limiting our exposure to news broadcasts about death and destruction, all of which involve very saddening, basically useless information.

However, the process of transcending [gloom-and-doom] programming is much more complex than minimizing one’s intake of bad news, especially in light of this significant fact:

“Extensive studies reveal that the most illness-producing influence is steadily ongoing anger, an extremely health-endangering attitude that, for various reasons, gets habitually disregarded as being merely a so-called hot temper.”

Therefore, to justifiably subdue emotional explosions, keep in mind that they are {{blood-pressure-raising}} reactions, whereby you vastly increase your chances of inducing a heart attack or stroke.

For just as the great Buddha said: “Holding onto anger is like drinking poison, and then expecting it to do no damage to your body.”

But even if it makes you feel slightly “weak” to let go of resentment, according to worldwide research, by duly releasing [long-held grudges] the likelihood of enjoying a healthy and happy, productive life is greatly enlarged.

Although mostly due to so-called “cultural” influences, developing a pleasantly positive attitude is widely seen as “unmanly,” a belief that, to a large extent, stems from the perception that men are the “traditionally” grim, “nose-to-the-grindstone” providers.

But as to the so-called “superiority” of “manly toughness,” according to global statistics, the average lifespan of women is several years longer than it is for men, mainly because women tend to pay much closer attention to their bodies.    

Nevertheless, regardless of one’s gender, to transcend the notion that, as we age, we get more and more “over the hill,” I believe that getting over so-called “hills” helps us to build up momentum, whereby we can ((joyfully)) overcome one (physical test) “hill” after another.

Yes indeed, nothing compares to the vital ability of activating ((self-curing, physical renewal)), a crucial endowment that, as we grow older and (hopefully) wiser, increasingly reminds us of this prominent fact:

What we (whisper) to ourselves is, in the long run, far more therapeutic than what we say out loud.

And by realizing that, especially during this “senior citizen” phase of my life, I find that most of my beneficial pleasure comes from the learning process, a relatively ((infinite)) dimension of awareness that I call:

((Self-Designed Time))

The main objective of this mode of thinking is, quite essentially, allowing ourselves more time to consider the powerful influences of negative energy, {{thought-waves}} on one’s body. And by doing that, the more we will realize the need for truly comprehensive, drug-free methods to subdue {heart-attack-causing}, unvented anger, surely an important facet of healthcare that should not be overlooked.

Thus with that suggestion said (and hopefully utilized), I will now wrap-up this article with a verse from one of my songs — a message that focuses on what is probably the most effectively life-saving, ((rage-reliever)) of all — the eminent process that is simply called:



If you learn to let grudges

be duly released—

Your mind and body will be

blessed with peace—

Enabling you to spark-up

your self-healing ((might))—

Soothing away tension

with your ((curative light))—

Arousing your wellness

with ((POSITIVITY))— 

Keeping you aimed at

your BEST ((DESTINY)))))…
