Most of our decisions, actions, movements, directions are controlled by our Central Nervous System. They definitely direct the functions of the mechanical parts through the mind. Thus mind assumes importance. The pace at which mind acts is different from the pace of the body. When we are young, definitely till we are around 60 years of age, the mind-body coordination works beautifully and thus control and direct our actions. Slowly, with progressive age, the body doesn’t function at the same efficiency as the mind and at times the CNS or the Central Nervous System signals reach late for the body to act. The body awaits instructions from CNS to act. The gap if any, creates all kinds of problems. So, you need to slow down the brain to receive signals from the brain to the body and act. It is like the light and sound issues. Light travels much faster than sound. That is why we hear the sound a bit later during a lightning strike.
Hence there are multiple transitions which are happening in our active, agile and intelligent human mind and body. They are mostly classified as: Fast & Active phase, Transitional phase, Re-calibrating phase and finally, the Balancing phase. These are fine lines and unless you recognise them separately, your acceptance of moving from one phase to the other will be difficult till you are rejected by the society, including your near and dear ones. So, we will do well to acknowledge, accept and deal with it, step by step of acceptance.
Each of these phases are unique and with independent characteristics. So, the deciphering is key. That will make you accept and enjoy, each phase of your life.
So, next time, you are asked this question, “Which phase of life are you in?” I am sure you can answer it with a smile and acknowledge the relevant phase of your life.
