Is There a Point At Which One Is Too Old To Be An Elf?

"We are elves with aging bodies. We are also ancient elves."

     From time to time, some young person sees a photo of us and thinks, how can they be elves? They’re too old! Of course, they are influenced by Tolkien’s writings and like to imagine that they are somehow immortal or near immortal as his elven characters are. Since their bodies haven’t changed fundamentally since they reached their twenties, it is an easy thing to imagine that they might never grow old. However, in time, if they continue on this path, and alas it is unlikely that they will, they will encounter the fact that none of us escape the demands of change that the material world places upon our physical bodies and the only alternative they will have to never aging is one that they are most likely un-inclined to pursue.
     We elves are essentially spiritual beings, which is not to say religious beings, but beings whose essence is focused and derived from spirit and the underlying energy that the material world is formed upon, rather than the transitory nature of material manifestations. Spirit is being defined in this sense as energetic consciousness. When we come to realize this truth, we become more attuned to our true natures, which are energetic, and we begin to see beyond any particular lifetime, and thus beyond the illusion of transitory material form or existence.
     We are elves with aging bodies. We are also ancient elves. More ancient than we appear no matter how old we may seem. In the not too distant future we will pass from these particular bodies and find new material forms for manifestation. We will still be ancient elves. Even more ancient, but not by much, and surely not as ancient as some of our kindred. But, as the physicists like to say: It’s all relative. And as we elves like to say: How about another dance!

If you are elves, why don’t you have pointed ears?
