Your loving-kindness is the most wish-fulfilling thing in life, more precious than anything else in the world.
Lama Zopa Rinpoche.

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.

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.

Cheers.

Yesterday’s “Alternative Nachos” reminded me that at several very different times in my life, I have lived almost exclusively on Nachos. And they were good times.

Today I went more traditional, and the result was even better than yesterday. Baked Tortilla Chips with Refried Black Beans and Roasted Red Peppers, Jalapeno slices, Onion, Cumin, Cayenne Pepper, and Teese Cheddar Cheese (the best vegan cheese in my opinion).

Om nom nom.


Just moved into my new apartment with my kickass new roommate.

To celebrate, I made Chili Cheese Nachos for dinner.

Baked Tortilla Chips with homemade Chili I had in the freezer, Daiya Cheddar Shreds, and Jalapeno slices.
