Tips on Keeping Mind & Body Young
By Jesse Anson Dawn
Jesse Anson Dawn (accurately
photographed at age 65), author
of the national award-winning
book Never "Old," plus The Reju-
venator's Bible, speaks out about
a most stirring subject: how to
personally control the unwanted
effects of "aging."
Presently answering the ques-
tion: "Is a major cause of aging
due to true mind-body wisdom
being repressed and dumbed-
down by medical fallacies and
fears of the unknown?"
Dear Readers,
Yes, sadly it's true that real wis-
dom (especially about the human
body), is largely cast as being a
"burden," a reason to hang one's
head downward via the ponder-
ous weight of "profound knowl-
have joyfully discovered that
mind-body wisdom is a PRE-
CIOUS gift, one that traverses a
path of positive TOTALITY...
However, if you don't care
about where your true-self is
heading, any old path will do,
wise or unwise, helpful or dete-
As I'm reminded of a useful
little test you can try on yourself
(to see a positive revelation about
the "gravity" of thought).
Just try looking at your face in
a mirror (when it's held down-
ward and supposedly burdened
by "heavy thoughts"). Immediate-
ly you can see that gravity-plus-
attitude makes your face look
more wrinkled and older when
held downward and depressed,
but quickly a younger, refreshed
look takes over when your face
is held forward and upright,
sparked with a little smile!
Also, I've discovered an even
more visible example of the
Frame-of-mind Effect, by study-
ing the facial changes of my
6-month-"old" baby, Jahson.
For example, when Jahson:
Is in a good mood, his pris-
tine skin and delightfully unpre-
tentious smile make him a lovely
infant, lighting up a room with
what I call the Original Grin. But
when he's cranky and cries, an
open-mouthed frown takes over
his face, as big puffy, red bags ap-
pear under his eyes, giving him
the look of a 100-year-old, bald-
ing, toothless man with a face
and neck full of depressions.
Wow! Such a CLEAR example
of how attitude-equals-aging, so
quickly via one's INNER CON-
Yes, admittedly there's nothing
new about "mind-over-matter,"
or joy-conquering-depression,
but these interlinked-concepts
have barely reached a small frac-
tion of their potential. A potential
largely squashed by the vast pow-
ers of medical profits (instead of
All of which reminds us that
true body wisdom is innately a
joyful, uplifting thing, more im-
mediate, more available, and
truly much more effective than
drugs or surgery.
And no matter what people
have come to believe about tak-
ing care of oneself, even birds are
prone to self-preening, and as for
men, it's not just a "gay" thing,
which is another fallacy promot-
ed by the "Medical" down-press-
ing of personal-power.
As joy and laughter truly Is the
best medicine, especially when
not just about a "joke," but about
enjoying an ever-learning way of
And is it true that the one who
laughs last, thinks the slowest?
Thinking now about the pow-
er of joy and humor reminds
me of my long-deceased father,
who very rarely laughed, or even
smiled (except for maybe a few
times a year while watching com-
edy on TV).
"So why doesn't he take a drug
such as Prozac to make himself
feel better?" people might ask.
As I'm again reminded of an
elderly couple I visited, when the
husband turned to his wife and
"I can't remember if I took
my Prozac today. Do I look de-
"Huh?" was all the woman
could say, flabbergasted at how
feeble her husband's control of
his inner well-being had become,
a man who looked much older
than his numerical age (as did my

blessings of mind-body-wisdom

Just make sure mind-body

the rest of your life... Because
the principal mission of a perpet-

to one's ever-healing, wilfully-
desired, better self...
