“Before we can truly live a life we must directly face the inevitability of our death. And not just the apparent finality of bodily death, but the death we live through in every single moment of every single day. To face this we are moved beyond memories, regrets, hopes and fear into the unconstrained life of the free heart. This living is not much known to humans, but it is the common experience of non-humans in the natural order of things.
“A lived life becomes this process. Those who don’t ‘go there’ are destined to live a life of pointless struggle, suffering without good reason, and dying with only fear, hope, and uninformed faith, which are different faces of the same thing.” – s.c.
