I'm 31 and can't find anyone my age to socialize with. To keep it short, I don't like to brag or complain. I live in the here and now. I am grateful for what life gives to me. I don't compete with others.

"How to be an old soul?"
One doesn't, because everyone is.

Just most of everyone's too busy at other affairs.
Too distracted or attached with something else, or misunderstood the fact with certain ideas to recognize such fact. :lol:

In the first Star Wars movie Hans Solo says, "I've been from one end of this galaxy to the other and I have seen a lot of strange things".

In the movie New Leaf, Walter Matthau says, "I am able to engage in any romantic activity with an urbanity born of disinterest".

World weariness is often seen as a mark of an "old soul". At a 10 year high school reunion people often compete to show each other how much they have, their social position, or other achievements. At a 20 year high school reunion many are less assertive or ambitious and have come to a more balance view of themselves and life. This can also be seen as being an "old soul".

It might be seen as having a broader field of vision resulting from age, hardship, wisdom, or spiritual maturity.

In the Eternal Cycle tradition, a soul becomes Old only after many thousands of incarnations.

Realistically speaking, however, an "Old Soul" is is a person who has gained much wisdom in a single lifetime -- wisdom that can only be obtained with experience.

This means that if you want to become an "Old Soul" you must go out and live life, learn from your mistakes, and accumulate wisdom.  Unfortunately, this also means losing friends, family, and -- most of all -- innocence.

Are you up to it?

We aRe All Together; Yet, Humans Among Most Lost Creatures in UniVerses
For We Have Hidden This Basic Truth of Existence in LiGHT ouT oF DarK WitH ALL
The Clothes We Wear; Starting With Words That Are Written That Folks Start to Spoon-Feed

Except The Illusions of the
Tools of CuLTuRE; the Clothes; Layers
And Layers Spoon-Fed From Birth We Become Separated,
Covering Breath of Our Nature Free; Just to Be i AM ALLONE, No Separation.
Of Course, This is Nothing New; Similar Metaphors Attributed to Folks Separated From
CuLTuRaL Clothes in A Desert; Under A Tree; Hmm; A Cave not So Much; for a Cave Sticks to Traditional Clothes
More As Plato's Cave in Dark Out oF LiGHT Does too in Metaphors of 'Free Verse Poetry', 'Avatars' Coming out of

Well, Anyway the

And the Beach For me
At Least And the Forest Whole
As A River i Looked Across to See
At age 3, Before i could Speak at 4; i Intuited
Beyond Words, i am Here Forever Now Whole
Loving Breath This Gift i continue to Live TheNoW....
No Link For the Origin of All That Is Now Will Be Broken
For me to Exist now Seed of the Flowers of my Parents Seeds
They are of the FLoWeR That Star Seeds BeCoMe Us; Stellar Lineage
Indeed

Than Star Souls We Are;
How People Can't See We Are
Simply 'God', Gives me Great Pause
And Forests of Face Palms Blind to See;
However; i too was Lost And Born Again to be Nature Naked

the Rest of Nature in Balance Again Doing Least Harm as All Becomes Worthy As Worship And Gift Same

Nature We aRe...

And of Course That Old Gospel of Thomas, Verse 37, Will Never Make the Edit of That Older New Bible for it
Puts God Back Where God Belongs Most to Humans; Within of Course, Out of Temple Mortar and Concrete
Books And Other Human Avatar Forms Like Golden Chalices And Robes; And Other Names of Tools We Create
Other than

We aRe A Dance Song
Naked Breathing Free
Oldest Soul We All Are Breathing NoW ToGeTHeReAL..:)

Gospel of Thomas, Verse 37:

37) His disciples said to him, "When will you be visible to us,
and when shall we behold you?"
He said, "When you strip naked without being ashamed, and
take your garments and put them under your feet like little
children and tread upon them, then you will see the child of the
Living, and you will not be afraid."
