What are your recommendations for avoiding concerns about aging, such as depression and even fear, and for approaching advanced age in a positive way? 

Humans have a tendency to want to be older in every stage of life until they are older, and then they want to be younger. They’re so hard to satisfy.

First, I would say that a whole lot of the problem with aging has to do with the slow debilitation of the human system. But you don’t want to live forever in a human form, so it’s a good thing it does degenerate.

But the second thing is that it doesn’t have to be that way. Aging, as you know it, is more karma than it is genetics. Genetically, there is absolutely a component that says you’re likely to live this many decades and you are very likely to have these kinds of illnesses. It’s blueprint stuff. But really, if you have had a healthy, active life from your childhood—and I know a lot of young people have healthy, active lives, but then they give that up for thirty or forty years—but if you have had that all of your life, then at the end of life you would not be dealing with the karma of not taking care of the body very well.

The thing that really frustrates people is—as with so many things in life—you can smoke a pack of cigarettes a day for twenty years and when you quit, your body will rebuild. There are so many things like that. But a lifetime of abuse with diet and movement and the way you think and the environment you live in, all of that is going to create a very debilitating set of conditions. And it’s not like, well, when I’m fifty, I’ll clean everything up and it’ll be all right—which you perhaps could do with other things. So the guilt that comes with aging has a lot to do with regretting decisions made earlier. It stems from knowing what you have and have not done for yourself consistently throughout your life. There is a piece of you that says “Oops, bad decisions.” And that guilt creates even more negative consequences.

How can guilt create impressions on the physical? I mean, guilt is a mental thing. So how can that affect the physical?

Well, I think you’re being an editor and asking that for those who may not know. But the answer is, because the mind has a profound effect on the body, which is why part of what you want to keep consistently going on in your life are good mental attitudes and mental beliefs, because these have an effect. What you let in is going to have a lot to do with what shows up.

Samuel says he only reminds us of what we already know, but the tools and insight he has provided over the years have been invaluable to me. The hugest gift I’ve received from Samuel is the reminder that I am not here to be the world’s greatest actor/artist/writer/fill-in-the-blank; I’m not here to be the next Martin Luther King, Jr. or Mother Theresa. I am here to be Source in form, so that no matter what I’m doing, no matter how long or short my to-accomplish list, I have value here. I am adding to the Greater Good by living the Love that I Am. That means, if my acting career finds me waiting tables (as it often has), I still go to work smiling because I know I am touching hearts, as I compacted to do. Every moment is sacred.

Participating in Samuel’s work over the last 20 years has been the most transformative experience of my life. It’s been the perfect method for me to discover, develop and be the best of what I am. I’ve gained the tools necessary for effective leadership, healthy relationships and emotional well-being. I’ve always been able to depend on getting pushed to the next level when I get too comfortable within my understanding of things, which has challenged me in all the right ways to expand my consciousness. I continue to participate in the work, because it gives me an outlet for my loving service and I get to use that service to fulfill my destiny.

Samuel has inspired me to explore many aspects of this beautiful life. Though he would say he simply reminds us what we already know, I know his teachings to be wise, resonant with my heart, making brilliant sense, and bringing truly remarkable results!
