In the book series, Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East, Baird Spalding talks about meeting a beautiful young woman in his travels through the Himalayan Mountains. He said she appeared to be about 19 or 20 years old. As it turned out, she was well over 100 years old!

How could that be?

Baird goes on to explain the lady’s people were known for their long lives, some as many as 800 or 900 years, as we count time today.

Is this all a fairy tale?


Your scientists today are beginning to study longevity in humans and other species. Some species live longer than others, an obvious fact.

But why?

Scientists explain it in strictly scientific terms, talking about cells, chromosomes, genetic mutations, etc. But there is more to aging than science can explain.

In your modern world, humans typically live less than 100 years. Only the rare ones live beyond that.

So how could people, like the “young” woman Baird speaks of, live well beyond 100 and appear to be barely more than a child?

Do cells, chromosomes, etc. play a role in this? Absolutely.

But why—and how?

It doesn’t take much effort for you to observe the people around you and how they age. Some are old at 40. Others are young at 90.

One of Johnny’s family was a Roman Catholic nun. She lived to be well over 100. She was healthy, busily engaged in her life, and at peace, till the day she died. She had a happy outlook on life. She knew how to love.

That is the key—love. The power of love, as you know and as we’ve talked about before, is beyond any other power. It keeps you young, healthy, and happy. It can even extend your physical life far beyond what you could imagine in your wildest dreams.
