I feel like death is something we don’t talk much about
So I wanna talk about it…
because it’s something that is lurking to find us all at some point or another
it’s a strange thing…
we never really know when it’s coming
It makes me sad when I think about it
When I think about life slipping away
I’m doing all this work for it all to just be taken away by the hands of time
One day I will have to say good bye to my body,
good bye to my life and everything I’ve created
what a harsh truth to swallow
nothing is ever ours
so stop thinking anything is truly yours, “my boyfriend, my car, my house, my dog”
yours nothing… everything passes, everything fades — you keep nothing.
Some say there is an after life
Some say we reincarnate
Some say you go to heaven or hell
Some say there is some in between place — purgatory
Some say you die and that’s it — that’s the end
I say — I don’t know what happens, because I really freakin’ don’t…
Is there a chance my consciousness can live without a physical body? If so, for how long?
Even if my consciousness can be transferred to a different host, this body that I now possess will eventually give out. I will have to let go.
It makes me sad to think of myself getting old
To think of my body not being as strong, not as attractive
It makes me sad to think of my loved ones passing away
It makes me sad to think of letting go
This death thing, man… it’s quite a topic to reflect on
The other day as I walked home from the beach I sort of dissociated for a moment as I looked around me at people passing by… some waiting for the light to turn… other’s standing in a corner among themselves talking… a family going for a stroll — isn’t it weird we are all strangers to each other? Just a bunch of strangers crossing the same street. We live on this planet together, but we ignore each other and just keep walking by.
that same day I had a weird thought come through — “we’re all just waiting to die.”
Death, that is our destination.
We go about our lives not really talking about this.
We are born, we experience some things, and at some point we die — death — that is what you’re amounting to.
What exactly is death?
Is it when the body can no longer function in support of your consciousness?
Is time travel a possibility? Could we come back to the same point in time? What is the nature of reality?
I love this being that I am — I would hate to never see her again.
this topic makes me deeply sad
and it makes me wonder, if ultimately my life just ends, am I making it worth it?
am I loving enough
or am I too worried about how I look and how much I’ve acquired that I am missing the opportunity to truly live?
lot’s to think about
