aging as natural enlightenment

I am an aging "boomer" who has always been drawn to non-dual consciousness. It seems to me that the non-dual awareness arises naturally in aging, though folks often don't recognize it. As we age, the contents of consciousness begin to dissolve (identity, time, story) and what's left is this infinitely loving space that, when merged with being, is bliss and a new basis for living. I believe this is one of the greats gifts of age. I'd appreciate your reflections on this idea and a review of my published work the transformation of consciousness in aging.
