“Death is not the opposite of life, but a part of it.”
— Haruki Murakami
Practice the art of dying everyday.
As soon as you wake up…prepare to take your last breath…expire and let go.
how it feels to die,
as you free fall backwards
and let the world go by,
and know how liberating it feels
for you are no longer encumbered
by the ties of your past
and all the hopes
of your future…
learn to be still…
that your heart beats no more
your blood slows through the veins
a sheet of silence covers you from head to toe
and time stretches to infinity
Let go of all the old memories- good and bad, let go of all the past associations,all the pain and hurt,all your joy and accomplishments, all your relationships- successful and not so successful, all your doubts and fears.
One has to come to grips with the paradox of learning to let go, of learning to free oneself, of learning to die to – live a better, wholesome, more satisfying life.
