From the blossom of health to the paleness of death, my mortality I accept. I am dying. So are you. To embrace death is to embrace life. I acknowledge that I am dying every moment, therefore, I am living every moment. I accept and am hyper-aware of the possibility of my inevitable death at any moment with astonishing serenity. I spare myself undue anguish and have enriched my life profoundly by living every single day as if I were dying. Through relishing in the certainty of my mortality, I take risks that yield rich rewards and show up in every moment authentically. I celebrate my indomitable spirit and preserve my silence within solitary confinement. My daily life has taken on greater meaning and intensity; I live momentously and acknowledge that every conversation that I engage in provokes a hardy energetic surge through an individuals bones that leaves them musing upon what they can choose to internally unfold.
If you feel something, feel it.
If you want to do something, do it.
If you want to go somewhere, go.
If you want to say something, say it.
If you love an individual, tell them.
If you want to change something, change it.
If you want to be someone, be.
I have lived disillusioned while drowning in my own narrow musing that there must be a better rhythm to life, a better way of expressing my desires or an easy way out to authentically embody the internal reorder that I was terrified to confront. I have lived to the melody of the drumbeat of the world and felt the unevenness of the surface through the soles of my feet. I have tolerated my cowardliness and faintheartedly succumbed to an external expression that was full of deceit, lacking soul and created a bone shaking ache that led me to internally explode. Be brutally honest with yourself about the fact that your time is finite, and I assure you that you will lead yourself and your life choices down a more memorable and ultimately more fulfilling course. Death is my only limitation, and I will not arrive to the end of my life with one single regret because I am relentless and unstoppable in my own world. Reshape your life with the wisdom of your destined death and dive into your emphatic death-embracing magic.
