Where Are All The Old Souls?

They're not in this group!  It's amazing how many post-teenagers consider themselves Old Souls!  I have news for you, kids.  You're NOT old souls!  However you feel and however cool it might be.  You're hilariously young!  And should be wildly enjoying your youth!  Instead of fartzing around pretending you're ancient!  Believe me, being an old soul is no joke!  I DO know, because I REALLY AM an old soul!  I'm going on 65, and I'm getting Social Security.  In July I go on Medicare.  Those are the kinds of credentials you need to be an Old Soul!  You also need pee stains on your underpants and holes in your tee shirts.  Yuck, you say?  I agree, I agree!  Being an old soul is yucky!  If you're lucky some day you'll be an old soul, but for God's sake don't speed things up!  You'll really regret it!  Be young!  Which is wonderful fun!  If you're old, I'll share my bad prostate stories with you.  Or my neighbor who got Alzheimer's.  Or the other one who uses a walker.  You ever been inside a nursing home?  Try it ONCE, and you'll never pretend you're an old soul again!  Old soul, old soul, it's very near to dead soul, dead soul!  Very near.  Do you like death?  You better, if you're an old soul.  Because if you're an old soul, you think about death all the time.  Which hospital?  Which doctor?  A DNR or not a DNR?  Living will?  Which cemetery?  Cremation?  Who pays?  Do I have enough?  What about those grandchildren who never come to see me?  What about my bunions?  My arthritis?  Cancer?  Heart attack?  Hooooo!  They're coming from all sides!  Quick! Under the bed!  They won't find me!  The Angel of Death!  Just one more pastrami sandwich, Lord, Just One!  Then I'll go quietly.  Quietly.  Goodbye Vanilla Shakes!  Goodbye Hamburgers!  Goodbye French Fries!  You think because I'm a REAL old soul I don't care for these things?  You're WRONG, totally WRONG.  Us oldsters have better things to do than pretend we're oldsters!  It's better to think about food and drink!  They taste so good!  Better than dead.  Better than death.  Dead, you don't need calories any more.  That's to live.  Be alive.  Smell flowers.  And you dumb youngsters think it's a good joke pretending you're old souls!  What a joke.  And a crummy joke too!  For one more day, one more eating cold ravioli out of the can, Chef Boy-R-DEE!  I'd sell you to Satan you dumb idiot youngster.  But you know.  You're wise.  You know that you don't have to pay any attention to old people, old souls like me.  Just sit there and if you wait long enough I'll die and you'll still be alive.  Yeah.  That's what happens.  Well, at least I've finished my idiotic youthful screwups, which you have yet to fulfill.  It'll be so wonderful watching you get divorced and have your children spit in your face!  Maybe even bankrupt!  Or go crazy for a Las Vegas **** when you're 50 and dump your long-time wife and wind up drinking MD20-20 in the gutter in Cleveland.  Occchhh.  Schadenfreud is wonderful, WONDERFUL, even only in anticipation!   You know what SCHADENFREUDE is, stupid face?  Go find out.  By yourself.  When I was young I had an apartment in an old building.  A drainpipe ran up and down through the bathroom.  And through this drainpipe, morning and evening, I could hear someone real old hacking, coughing, spitting  like only an old soul can do.  Memento Mori.  You should be like that at thirty, schmuck.  Schmuckette!  May your ceilings always leak.  May the bedbugs invade you.  You've heard?  They're baaaaaaaaaaaaack!!!!       

Enough already.  I have to go eat my TV dinner.  You, young ones.  Don't pretend to be old.  Be afraid of being old.  Youth is fun.  Take risks, maybe even lose.  Run into a tree while you're skiing.  Die.  It's good, you don't have to put up with old age.  No picnic.  Run your BMW into an overpass when you're stoned.  It's better!  It's BETTER!  Or buy insurance and live a long time.  Hoooooo!  YOU'LL BE SORRREEEEE!

Bye,

Anyone can HAVE A OLD SOUL. It all depends on how many lives you live there is a such thing as past lives. And I am one of them

sorry to say that it amuses me to read a post from a person older then me but it could be written by a rebellious teenager, this is exactly what makes the difference between an old soul and a young soul. and as said below it has nothing to do with physical age but with maturity and mindset.

with all due respect you soul age has nothing to do with your physical age. you are mocking younger beings like a child would... and you claim to be an old soul. you should be ashamed of yourself honestly. I am young in age but let me tell you I would never go to such lengths to insult and take childish stabs at others. for another I am a 23 yr old with osteo arthritis in both my knees. and have a 20 yr old friend with type 2 diabetes disease and health does not make your age Sir. For another before you go around insulting people you should really get to know them. Not everybody has the opportunity to be young and dumb for multiple reasons. instead of tearing people down you should be building them up. and to go around and tell youngsters to repeat your mistakes or mistakes of others is rather ignorant and selfish of you. you should be hoping for better not for the same or worse. My parents are def. right when they say misery loves company. You should really try to look at things differently Sir as you see. ... We should all be rooting for the good thats left not condemning. Good day to you

I have one thing to say. I Do Not connect With people My age. At All. I moved To Bloomington indiana searching For kids my age to meet and Make New Friends. This didnt Work. I Still Make better conversation With 40 year Old men and 60 year old women. The Most Interesting person I have EVER met is 62 years old And i Met her In My psychology class. She Is an Artist and A mafia child. Thats what i consider makes Me an old soul. Not Too Mention i Do have physical ailments like arthritis, scholiosis, and I broke my Hip And spine at age 17. i am sad To hear someone completely disregard this energy Theory i have because they are on Medicare.

Yes, Sir. You were wrong. Like You Said. Now please, next Time you Have a negative thought about kids of My generation, let it go. Please. I Was simply searching for A connection on Google, And it led Me To This negative interpretation based on quantum physics. Cool. You read an article Or so. You Must Be A genius.

He is so right, in the real sense, but misses the definition of "old soul," but who cares, he's so hilariously right!

you asked ..

your soul is the essence within you not your external shell we are but energies(special) with a history that are experiencing new experiences with each lifetime, some were here before even man came to the planet and helped to create earth with their creativity .. so many think just one being did it but i know better that we... the old souls did it ..(atlantis/mu, even earlier) those who were there are old souls, those who have learned alot in their lives are also wise ones yet maybe not as old as the oldest souls. I have had dreams of creating in space and all I had as a "body" was this energy and thought i had a form but it was see through.. i could telekinetically move planets at will and fix anything wrong with a planet/moon but don't recall messing with suns as I suspect they are on a higher level than even the souls.. but unsure.. this was a pretty short dream although it went on for hours, i also felt this tremendous inner peace like nothing and no one could ever bother me even if they blew up one of my creations(which one lady being did) i was blown off my sitting position after i had fixed the atmosphere of a planet and terraformed its jagged surface into a walkable surface.. i was totally immune to space and didn't seem to need to breathe, eat or sleep, and never had one single order given to me.. a site called jeshua.net (not taking any credit) talks about atlantis in the side panel middle area and this really gave me deja vu she is a channeler of the being you call jesus but insists his real name was jeshua ben joseph it was a real confirmation for me .. i only found this 2 years after the two dreams i had of being that space being of which i was thinking in live.. as if it was in a sense what i was really doing while awake in another reality .. it started one week then ended another week in earth time and its like only a few minutes or hours passed "up there" as i seemed to had learned more while i was asleep to that other reality and awake in earth reality.. ok you can just bash talk me now I expect that reaction and am so used to the cognitive dissonance of this era that has been taught to think like a sheeple or drone and not actually attempt to think outside the box which is earth themselves.

Being an old soul has nothing to do with physical ailments, rather an old soul has an intuition of other characters, whom are lacking internal strength, unexpressed negativity, and a judgmental demeanor -- apparently not accepting any other views except their own. I'd have to agree with the whole escaping reality thing -- however this may be an excuse for the younger souls incomprehension towards the real trouble an older soul faces. Old souls understand that the title "old soul" is not ba<x>sed on a literal level, rather it is the moral values, personal truth and strength found within a person, which is rejected by society a lot of times. Their empathetic and deeply intuitive nature, sort of crosses the lines of connection between younger souls (more egoistic, know it all, false sense of confidence, reality dependent) -- on a conscious and subconscious level. Those with a pure enough heart, who is deeper then the surface , will sense the beauty and nature of someone who has been through a lot, yet still has to give, and can appreciate and love them fairly, the old souls.<br />

An old soul can be found in a child so to speak. Just listen with your heart, and forget what you see.<br />

<br />
PuzzleGuy713 you're probably right. There are all kinds of things in this world that are not explainable. I do know something about quantum theory and fully realize that human minds just aren't up to it, we're reaching levels of human knowledge beyon which it's going to be hard to go.<br />

eelarc said:Have you been reading Eckart Tolle Puzzleguy, you sound like you have? Mr Old man I found your post quite entertaining. You may have noticed that younger people are attracted to EP, so by law of majority there are going to be lots of younger people claiming to be old souls.<br />
<br />
Sorry eelarc, I've never even heard of Eckart Tolle Puzzleguy. As for being an old soul, it sounds like most of it means being mature, not old. And THAT could well be true. Take care!<br />

Mr Old man I found your post quite entertaining. You may have noticed that younger people are attracted to EP, so by law of majority there are going to be lots of younger people claiming to be old souls.

So. What you're telling me is that "old souls" are imaginary. They're only people (basically young people) who think they've been reincarnated. Well, if it doesn't hurt anybody, that's okay with me. But if you ask me, it's a bunch of hooey. It's just another way not to deal with reality. But it doesn't hurt anyone. That's true. And if it doesn't hurt anyone I shouldn't care. Fine. Well, I really don't mean to interrupt your fun, so carry on! Be as old as you feel! But I must say that teenagers pretending they're "old souls" is rather fun.

Zotz123...See, you can teach an old soul new things, lol

Dear Alexa910 and Zeroz,<br />
<br />
Okay, I took your advice and went back to the group and read eleven or twelve stories, including your own. I even went to michaelteachings and read about soul ages and old souls. I see I got things wrong. So please accept my apology. It appears (tell me if I'm right) that being an "old soul" has more to do with reincarnation and the piling up of life experiences through a large number of past lives. So "old souls" don't feel connected to what a lot of their contemporaries like or dislike. It doesn't have to do with becoming a real, live old person in terms of age. In fact, in one story I read that a person twenty years old is an old person to an "old soul." <br />
<br />
Well, in a sense I got it wrong and in a sense there was something right about my position, too. You're quite right that you give the impression of being older than your ages. But you're still teenagers. If you boiled down my story, I would hope it could be summed up as saying "don't run away from your youth. Enjoy yourselves." I know very well (I was there too) that life can feel flat and stale even to someone 15 years old. I know that you're all working through all the changes that happen to you at your ages. That's fine. Just don't ignore the advantages you have in your hand. Many older people (me included) envy you and wish they could be 15 again too. Understand that you've got something very valuable that you won't have later. I'm really serious about visiting a nursing home. There must be a volunteer organization in your communities that would let you do that. It's not pretty. But it's enlightening. I think it would help you get a better perspective on life and on enjoying what you have. You can still be an "old soul" if you like, by your definition, and still be a youngster. Just enjoy yourselves.<br />
<br />
Take care!<br />
