We knew early on that death was inevitable.

Strip all the machismo, all the philosophical tongue-twisting, and all the high-school-style drama off that simple fact, and we are left with the basics:  enjoy the moment, be considerate of others, pursue our dreams.  No matter how hopeless things are on the outside, stay light on the inside.  Life is a game—deadly serious sometimes—but a game nonetheless.

If we live a fearful, thoughtless life—a life where we do not pursue our highest aspirations and reach for fulfillment—we might as well be dead already.

  1. I’ve been under intense stress for years. How can a person know, especially with all that has gone on in the world. I’m discovering that my anxiety is inherent. It’s not an excuse. But knowing a little more about humans, just today, I don’t feel guilty passing it on to my daughters, taking the opportunity I have to warn them. I can’t accept their blame, as my parents shouldn’t be expected to take mine. If we’re lucky, we can find out sooner than later. We should be taught this in school. I hope I can pull out alright. “High school.” I don’t think we ever leave it, do you? It’s just a bit more refined. The game is more hidden. But! By pulling ourselves out of the inherent loops, we might stand a chance at growing up.

  2. True, to fear death is to fear the inevitable. It’s pointless and it does you no good. We all die eventually, as sad or terrifying as it sounds. So, make this life a best-selling story that even death will have a hard time putting down.
