Live like you will die…because you will

‘live like you will die. Because you will’ – I read that somewhere today.

Interesting, there are two things that unite us all.

Firstly, our physical carnation will die at some point and almost certainly, everyone who is currently alive will be a pile of dust sometime in the next 50-100 years, you and I included.

Secondly, our inner energy, our spirit, our soul, is all part of the universe, everything that exists is connected by the same energy, we are one. That energy will continue forever.

Acceptance of our own death, now, changes our outlook on life, now in this moment, the only moment we can be alive. We spend a great deal of time and energy inside our minds imagining our own demise, what if we accept it and let go and then live this moment?

We can only die once and we will, so let go of the fear of that event, let go of the resistance, surrender to it. Then we are free from that burden and can live free of the fear.

The energy that made us came from the cosmos and will return to it after our body has expired, the real you and me, not the mind, body, name etc, the inner energy that is us never dies.

So stop reading this, go and live this moment it is all we have.

Confused

In countries where food is not plentiful, life is more simple, they have less of most things and people often sit in a group of friends or family and perhaps pray or say something to express their gratitude for what they have and what they are about to eat.

In other parts of the world, where food is plentiful and very often wasted, where people often sit alone to eat, the only thing that happens is people take a photo of their food and post it on Instagram for others to like. Then return to their smartphones and eat, not just consuming food but consuming yet more data.

We’re confused in our thinking that having everything equates to happiness. The people who have the least tend to have the most gratitude and joy in life and those that have it all are often unfulfilled.
