According to Dr Chopra: Aging is much more of a choice than people ever dream and for that, it is essential to reinterpret the concept of body and realize the changeless I inside of us, which the ancient sages in India simply called the Self (Soham).
The Outer I
The outer I wears clothes, eats, seeks and enjoys material wealth, socializes, engages in myriad other activities, identifies with pain, pleasure, poverty, happiness, sadness, youth and old age every time-bound condition that the relative world imposes.
The Inner Eye
But the real I within is changeless and our goal is to link it to the world Spirit, i.e. unity consciousness. As Dr Chopra puts it, we are victims of sickness, aging, and death by gaps in our self-knowledge and this lack of awareness of the real I leads to loss of control over the end product of intelligence, the human body.
The Three Ages of Man
Marianne Williamson, author of A Womans Worth, aptly said, Having read this book, I feel younger than when I started it.
Meditation & Yoga
Meditation nullifies Stress; and Dr Chopra claims Meditation lowers Biological Age. He writes, Transcendental Meditation is based on the silent repetition of a specific Sanskrit word, or Mantra, whose sound vibrations gradually lead the mind out of its normal thinking process and into the silence that underlies thought.
The science of Yoga, in use for thousands of years in India, unites the thinking mind with its source in pure awareness i.e., the quantum space, the silent, empty void that is the womb of all matter and energy that exists in the gap between thoughts; the unchanging background against which all mental activity takes place. Our minds are preoccupied with thoughts, wishes, dreams, fantasies, sensations and only Meditation shows the mind its own origins in the quantum depths.
The End is Wisdom at the End
Ageless Body, Timeless Mind systematically, scientifically, and logically rationalizes the process of growing old, solves the mystery of aging of the biological body, eliminates the nagging fear of death, and revolutionizes the concept of the new old age where people will easily live to be 100 and beyond. And all of this is packaged with a spiritual vision.
