Your loving-kindness is the most wish-fulfilling thing in life, more precious than anything else in the world.
We’re all stumbling through this complicated thing we call life looking for a way out. But we don’t want the way out because the way out is the end, and the end in this case is death.
This is the basic fact of life for every single person I know. Hurry ahead, but reject what is being hurried toward.
And we wonder why we have insecurity, anxiety.
Want the truth? Want the answers to your ambiguous questions about the point of it all? Because I have them. I really do. It is all very simple.
The truth is that you’re dying, and I mean that literally. I mean that you are today or tomorrow or the day after, perhaps, going to cease existing as you know it; I mean that any and every other person you know is also today or tomorrow or the day after, perhaps, going to cease existing as you know it. You don’t know when the endgame for you or any of the people in your life is going to arrive but you do know it is coming for all of you. All of us.
We are all in the process of fading from the world.
Stop waiting or doubting or fearing. Fear? What is that? What does that matter if you’ll be gone tomorrow? It matters none. And that’s reality.
We’re here in this moment, and we won’t be in the next, or the one after that. Or - worse - if we are, someone we love won’t. Stop pretending you have forever to live your life and make it happen RIGHT NOW.
Forever fades away. We don’t have that. We don’t even have a lifetime. We have RIGHT NOW. So do something RIGHT NOW about the life you believe in living, about the people you believe in loving, about the dreams you believe in unfolding. This is the ONLY chance you have left.
