Time is not toxic

From the January 1998 issue of The Christian Science Journal

What's the commonly held thought about aging? Isn't it often a fear of having to slow down, retrench, and look backward? Isn't it often a fear of becoming inflexible and rigid both mentally and physically, of becoming a burden to ourselves and loved ones? But those fears really should have nothing to do with our advancing experience. Passage of time and limitation shouldn't be equated.
