    Excellent. It accords with the research into adult stage development which shows that we don't stop growing in adulthood; we are not fully formed by the age of 21, or 31, or even 41. Growth continues, particularly in the deeper arenas of wisdom, capacity to take multiple perspectives, and spiritual depth. Anyone over 40 can look back at their life and see the growth that has occurred and can understand that more will occur. Ken Wilber does a great job of explaining this in A Brief History of Everything.

    Yay Jane! Jane I just watched your "letter to yourself" and this video. I have watched many of your interviews and videos. They have given me much hope Jane. Thank you for sharing your life. It has made a great difference to my life/spirit. Thank you**

    Jane is an incredible example of not only climbing that staircase she speaks of, resetting that thermostat, and leading the change she wants to see in the world. I had the honor of meeting her once, she walks the talk.

    Why wasn't Jane in Prison for treason? She is living very well off today. The Vietnam Veterans who did the right thing to serve our country were spit on when they got off the plane, a lot are homeless now too. Guess that's gratitude for you. I would love to see Jane Fonda poor! The Vietnam Veterans should to take Jane Fonda in a Civil Action for the damage she caused and leave her penniless.

    Insightful, brilliant talk. Jane Fonda is the first person I've heard articulate clearly what I've been experiencing in my late 60s and early 70s and what my late husband and I experienced as a couple in our last years together. We turned those into our best, and not because life became easier. My husband was diagnosed with leukemia–the moderate form–8 months before his death and underwent chemotherapy for 6 months before that stopped working. He and I came more alive than ever

    It is so true about the age. Age now has a new meaning. I am enjoying myself at 54. I feel that I have not reached my potentials yet. There are so many things to do in life. The end of pursuit of happiness is to the day we die. Thank you Jane. BTW, I used to have my oil paintings displayed in a gallery next to your work out place in Beverly Hills. You have been my inspiration, so is your father. He is such a great actor. Best wishes.

    The negative comments made here say more about the persons making the negative comments than it does about Ms. Fonda. It must be a terribly heavy burden to carry that much hate directed at someone they don't even know.

    Thanks Jane Fonda this the greatest speech I have listened. May be being in the third act myself I was so attached to it and listening again and again sometimes. Thanks to give ideas about women feelings and what we are going through emotionally with aging:) and life reviewing must be done time to time I guess, May be at those times I will listen again.
    Thanks to Ted for recording and spreading the video.

    I want to figure out how to have more sex. My buddy has begun seeing a stunning woman basically because 8 weeks back he joined a site called Master Attraction (Google it if you'd like to learn more.) I'm jealous because I want to fall in love as well. How come it's so difficult? I'm going to look at this Jake Ayres guy's emails and find out if it might help a person like me. Crazy point is, my friend once had no results with women. How does one change so rapidly? His girl's like a model.

    I'm displeased. My nephew lives in the neighboring room and he in recent times got really good at attracting ladies. He went to the Master Attraction web page by Jake Ayres (Search in Google). Now I hear him bringing girls back. He's constantly bringing sexy girls back and I can't help but hear it. It's yucky. If only he had not discovered that site. My best friend is getting laid now too coz of that site.

    Her "country" didn't do bad things. Her GOVERNMENT was guilty of doing bad things. BIG DIFFERENCE. I don't think she should stand up for the government, but I believe that EVERY AMERICAN, herself included, should be respectful to, and honor those men and women who sacrifice EVERYTHING for their fellow Americans. She can burn in hell.
