Before we were born, there is no concept of Life and Death.
If you were born blind, the concept of darkness to you is nothing more than the concept of light. Right? There is no distinction between them since you have no access to them to even have a comparison. Light and Darkness do not exist in your realm.
It is the same with Life and Death themselves. When you go to sleep, you don’t have the feeling of darkness spreading upon you. You might dream, the dreams are your realm. You might not dream, and wake up to the bird chirping outside your windows, and a new day is waiting for you. The time you sleep, you won’t feel scared of darkness if you have a fear for it since childhood.
What if you go to sleep, for the longest time, maybe 4 days, 4 months, 10 years, and eternity. You won’t feel like you’re dying, you won’t feel anything.
What ever you experience during that long sleep, is your new realm now. I know, mind blown much?
So what is death, anyways and why are we so afraid of it?
I perceive death as it is, as always, for the longest time, the only motivation to our lives.
Without the fear of death, we won’t even bother trying. If you know the end of a movie already, would you bother watching it? If you know, this is what’s gonna happen when you keep doing certain things, would you do it?
We are HUMANS, a manual solving machine in flesh and bones. We need problems to solve, or else our brains will deteriorate.
Don’t know when you’re gonna die? Then live your life to fullest while you can.
When will you realize that our days are numbered? That our perception of life and death is too much distorted by society.
Yes, we don’t know whether there is life after death, because no one is alive to come back and tell us. The near death experience that few of us have gone through is merely personal.
Isn’t it funny to you that we have different dreams because we have different day to day basis?
And we have different near death experience because we have different lives?
Live is Death itself. We close our eyes, go to sleep, live in a dream, wake up to this world we call reality, but it is?
It is, in fact, an endless loop of reality in which we engage ourselves voluntarily.
Don’t be afraid of Death, just be aware that it’s there, embrace its existence, and live your life as if it’s there, tomorrow.
It’s 1:21 am, I read all the book The Subtle Art of Not giving a F*ck by Mark Manson, and listened to Alan Watts about Death. My life has changed drastically and this is a summary I made out of those. These people, I barely know them, but they changed my life and how I view life in a way that I could never have imagined. I wrote this because I know no one would give a shit about a video I would have shared about Alan Watts. I know people that care about me would read everything, and understand that this should be a global concept. And that is all I ever needed in life, to influence as many people as possible about this beautiful life that so much worth living. And to not give too many fucks for things that are not important.
