It occurs to me that we may glorify or fear death precisely because its continuation with life is not clear. It is like a clearly defined path disappearing into the mist. Is there a leap, a merge, a flow, or a gap that just cannot be bridged? It is something we really don’t know.
Or perhaps it’s because we THINK we don’t know, that we don’t experience that constant interplay of life and death.
We don’t become timeless when we die. We are timeless NOW.
We don’t need to connect to the soul of a person only after they have left their physical body. We are connecting to soul NOW. Theirs. Ours.
We are leaving behind countless physical bodies while alive,and are never fully occupying one even while alive.
Are you fully IN your physical body?Are you sure? Really? Is it as ‘known’ as you THINK? Ok, here’s a question for you. Right now, what is happening at the back of the space between your shoulder and diaphragm? What is your liver conveying to you? How is it speaking to you?
And the earth beneath your feet? What is she conveying? And your feet. What are they hearing? And saying?
Didn’t really know, right? But you can. When you are still, silent, in the timeless zone.
That path we are walking on is not as clear as we might think. Perhaps the path ahead is not as unknown as we might think.
For we are in it with every outbreath, in that pause after we breathe out and the next breath enters. And we are in our body for that imperceptible moment in-between inbreath, and when the breath goes out…. Yet, it never fully goes out, never fully comes in. Except at death.
Perhaps we are most alive when we die. And this is something you can THINK about.
With a smile!
