How to (not) lose your youth


The other day I was talking to a friend and, from one thing to another, he told me the statement “Those who think deeply lose their youth”. I don’t think I’ve ever been so dissatisfied with an idea. Youth and adolescence are, besides the period of self-development and discovery, the perfect opportunity to explore the deep mysteries of the Universe.

Sounds a bit blagian, but it’s my point.

A young man should let his mind fly free beyond the bounds of immediately available knowledge, to live in theorems, not in axioms. To use intelligence to acquire heavenly knowledge, not just luciferic knowledge.

Ask questions and seek answers, but at the same time stay open to change. It’s just like in the whole career game.

When we are young, we want to become princes and princesses.

Later, we want to be a lawyer as a father, a doctor as a mother, or to defend ourselves on television as a celebrity X. Then, as time goes by, our options change and change and change. This is how we should look at the world around us, the environment around us.

And what better time to be open to the world than adolescence?

Youth? Although we don’t like to believe that, most of us are much more worry-free than adults. And here I refer to be superficial, but urgently needed, concerns: many of us live with parents, so we don’t have to pay the bills until the end of the month because everything else is cut off; we have covered all the primary needs, precisely to be able to take care of ourselves on the needs at the top of Maslow’s pyramid.

And even the exceptions that stay away from parents, take care of themselves, have a job and go to college too … and they can think deeply, they can make time.

And indeed, many times, this motivates them to move on.

I can do this because they have the energy they need. They have that buzz, that spark. He realizes that they have a long way to go and that the decision on the finish line is not in their hands, but in their minds.

So think deep. Read books, see documentaries, find out which ways you prefer. But go out in nature, meet people, learn how the mechanisms of everything that exists work. Stay with yourself, explore yourself, but do not remain introspected – you want, you do not want, you do not live alone, and in order to survive you need to know and what is around you. And if you ever, young, feel like you can’t, take a break.

There is no shame in pleasing yourself from time to time.

As long as you stay true to yourself, everything will be fine. Use your youth, use your energy for constructive purposes. Do not ceiling, do not remain flattened among the thousands of personalities drawn to indigo. Find your passion for mystery and make the most of it.
