This year my weekly newsletter Seeds is 19 years old. It was inspired by the prodigious work of metaphysician Emmet Fox. I wanted to send a weekly inspirational gift that was a quickie — to cause a deepening of spiritual thought, word, and deed. It seems to be working; I still have some of the charter subscribers.

Seeds XIX, 41 Seed: 60
I love Friday the 13th—for me it’s a lucky, lucky day and magical things happen on every one. This one is particularly special to me because it’s the first day I’m 60 years of age. 60! How did that happen? I turned 60 yesterday.
Mariska Hargitay says, …it’s a life’s journey of finding ourselves, finding our power, and living for yourself not for everyone else.
According to Chinese medicine, when one arrives at 60, one has lived a full life cycle, and then one gets to start over. The words above apply even more in this context.
I turned 60 by taking the journey of my own life, just as we are all required to do. We find ourselves, we find our power, and we learn to live for ourselves. I think by 60 one begins to get the hang of life—at least I hope so.
The image I chose for this Seed is a laurel wreath—it means Victory. Turning 60 is indeed a victory for me.
