The Fountain of Youth Uncovered
There is no need to expound or equivocate; there simply is no magic fountain of youth. There has been no magical discovery of water that expands youth and there never will be. As far as the infamous fountain of youth is concerned we have Ponce de Leon to thank for an idea of possibility, but an idea that never transcended beyond the gestation of his imagination. He never found the fountain in Florida. He failed to realize something so basic to civility and so basic to symbolism translating into a truth so basic to reality, it simply goes overlooked: One’s fountain is in their heart. No discovery was ever necessary as youthfulness essentially consigns to looking within one’s spiritual personage. Gracefully aging predates aging remedies signifying what is so obvious to life, that knowing it get overlooked, is unacceptable; in the spirit of noble personage and ET, “be good.”
As early as there was concern about keeping young it seems apparent the real remedy was not recognized. Sometimes even when something is acutely exposed, it still goes unseen, i.e. unnoticed. The supposition that youth has to be sought essentially transcends to a relative truth; it is intrinsic and although intangible, it brings perception to sight; it is recognized when seen.
Lay sublimating has produced a theory that deciphers into who one is as the essential youth retainer, or detractor, depending on posture, but the fountain unmistakably, is null.
There are hints in particular literature that brings some relevancy to the point. I particularly found the Philosopher, Josiah Royce, The Moral Insight bears close to something to be considered. His words in his literature hints toward confirming the lay idea that principally relates according to what he says. Lay theorizes, the better one is, the better one looks, particularly as they get older. Royce allows us to read between the lines regarding the worth of the heart when he tells us, “Such as that is for me, so is it for him, nothing less.” I define his moral insight to indicate a good personage means doing unto others as one wishes to be done unto them.
There is nothing that inclines more worthy than being of a good personage, or that inclines more worthy to a redivivus appellation. It gradates one toward liveliness, known to be a youthful disposition, rumored to keep one young. Although it’s owned by youth, the aging are allowed claim to it.
Looking in faces behind deeds and expressions verifies what was initially overlooked; youth clearly results from a good personage. It aids in one avoiding the medical scalpel, even if used with good intentions; personifying good inclines more toward youth than superficial fixes. There is no disputing a disposition otherwise has never produced phrases like “She is a nice looking sweet old lady,” “He’s such a nice looking old man,” and certainly never phrases like, “That’s a hateful person, but they look good!” On the other hand, reportedly, people have been heard saying things like, “she is not only cute on the outside, but cute on the inside too, meaning: she personifies a good heart.”
The supposedly real fountain, in all its allegory would compel youth no greater than a good disposition. A manner of good essentially is what brings principle to living and good conduct to actions. Youth scales one’s personal characteristics, coexisting with the good in a good person, otherwise fleeting leaving cratered wrinkles and contorted expressions. Let’s ‘face’ it, a good personage reigns as the key to looking good; good is simply not looked at as ugly even when there are wrinkles.
Unmerciful aging is wretchedly bewitching, resulting in a bent and broken spirit, craters of wrinkles and feeble temperaments that essentially cancel ones youthful disposition. The overcoming of aging brings its worth to definition, even more defining of what the good persona means; a softening of the edges of decades of living and declining the aging wrinkles and cratered crevices that otherwise lay wait. The wretchedness of un-good turns one old and ugly through the eras, correspondingly to tales, mythologies and even truths, the tale of Dorian Gray is noted. He was the best reminder of what time brings, yielding contrary to a spirit of good, his transforming portrait of his personage and years makes the point. When one’s nature is diabolic, they essentially are ugly turning old being exposed as diabolical genii. It has been written they stand behind mirrors wishing to be the fairest of all, but there is no chance with such a youth canceling disposition.
Surprisingly after decades of searching, so elementary to avoidance, that some still overlook what reasoning knows, the potential for youthful retention is innate; there is no need to look for what is already owned that simply may only need adjusting.
Consequently, and theoretically, the way to the fountain of youth bares simple instructions:
- Firstly, don’t believe Ponce de Leon simply did not find the fountain; there was no such fountain that spews water that alters aging. It never existed even if written about.
- Keep reminded of Josiah Royce’s, words from The Moral Insight: “Take whatever thou knowest of desire and of striving, of burning love and of fierce hatred, realize as fully as thou canst what that means, and then with clear certainty add: Such as that is for me, so is it for him, nothing less.”
- Inspect and contrast the faces behind the dispositions that represents both good and unkind and decide what your heart will be.
- Stay cognizant; make yourself better than that which you have discovered about yourself, improvements to self are never wasted.
- Practice, strengthen and uphold your good daily.
- Lastly, test your moral inclinations often by smiling at others.
