Maturing of maturity… Are we maturing as we are stepping in the grey zone?


As our days are catapulting to months and thence to years, our systems and our persona are changing; we are maturing.
Maturing — Are we maturing as we step into the grey zone?

Maturing like a pea pod, ready to pop off any day, is a natural process.
But are we maturing mentally and intellectually as well?

The grey cells are constantly working hard to take centre stage and be the adulation seeking performer. Yes, they are.

This is both a natural journey of decay as well as our premonitions that we keep feeding, like “Oh! I’m getting old.”
I shun this premonition or the so-called forced acceptance that yes, I have to decay, I have to succumb to my ageing cells.

It’s all in the mind…

To me, ageing naturally is justified only if we mature in our thoughts, in our perceptions, in our deeds and needs — and in our own lives.

*Basking in the morning sun to settle and not pursue unending useless dreams is a sign of mental maturity.
*Letting a child of adventure, love and creativity survive and cajole your heart; every now and then is maturity.
*Nurturing the passions and loving unconditionally the relationships formed in the early days is maturity.
*Having a heart to still decipher the pangs of sensuality and trying to discover the moisture in the sagging skin, on the hard platter of a fantasy couch, giving the orgasm of youth to your spouse is maturity.


Don’t let the fuzziness of a contracting lens prevent you from getting the visual delight out of the beautiful nature and the mesmerizing sensuality all around.

Don’t let the cracking knee joints warn you not to try the most erotic Kamasutra pose you liked or experimented during your early thirties.

Don’t let your gurgling tummy and ever-present farting stop you from trying the spectacular culinary cuisine spread around the world.

Don’t let the phrase — “Oh! I can’t do this” or “Wish I could do this” — make you a haggard old man waiting for his final destination.

Mature your mind to greet a maturing body.

But let the childish heart live the youthful years you have cherished all throughout.

This is the ‘Maturity of the Mature.’
