I want you to do something. No, actually that isn’t true- You need You to do something. I must warn you that this may be very difficult and uncomfortable. You need to sit back for a moment and close your eyes for 15 to 30 seconds. . .
Vividly imagine with all of your might and with extreme detail: Your mother, father, husband, wife, or even one of your own children would be gone tomorrow. Perhaps you can imagine there are only 48 hours left of your own life.
Are you finished? . . Let’s go deeper into this. Can either of you die today with no regrets?
Now you should feel it. This moment now. . . Yes, this is it! This state of singularity is truly real. Unexpected and unwarranted you suddenly become awake!!!
By the virtue of death, loss, and mortality something magical unfolds; truth and purpose. Losing a loved one makes the world stop spinning: What your friends are doing doesn’t matter- the post someone liked on Facebook is irrelevant- rude cashier at the store is forgotten- the rude text message you read earlier is mentally deleted.
Your perception of meaningless things, thoughts, habits, and even people abruptly fashion to a diminished essence. The illusion of control quickly subdues. Stress and anxiety no longer dangle beyond the bounds of your spirit. This ‘quantum-emotional chaos’ creates new emotions – eradicating others.
As a result of your destitution, your unconditional closeness seems as if it was snatched out of your grasp. Isolation and desertion reside where comfort and compassion once lived. Your life is reformed through the disappearance of value, compassion, morality, and love. People you trusted most begin to expose their agendas throughout the duration of your squandering. In search of your foes, you begin losing friends. The depletion of the life you once knew, or foolishly thought existed, shapes into something real. Alleged loyalist suddenly modify their commitment. The trace of their stench creates more emotional disruption. A filthy residue of anger, pain, and resentment is left behind.
Not all is lost. Maneuvering through the complexity of the world becomes simple. Through the solitude and abandonment your mind suddenly undergoes metamorphism. The illumination of truth begins to craft confidence and capability in your heart. Clarity becomes a stepping stone towards an unmistakable purpose. Now you can see what has been holding you back. The phantasm of loyalty and expectations fade to black.
The REAL YOU starts to come back to life! In an attempt to impetuously move forward, you are gifted with wisdom. Performance and accomplishment begins to reach heightened levels. The fucks you previously gave hit an all-time low.
Now you understand love deeper than before. Now you confide in skepticism. Your gut becomes your guide. Loyalty is no longer a free badge neglectfully worn by friends and family. The declaration of devoted allies was previously accepted on good faith. Adversaries no longer assail in darkness with forged affection.
The opening of your eyes is never a guarantee. Tomorrow is not promised to anyone; therefore, make changes today. Do not make the mistake of speculating opportunities or even people will be there tomorrow.
Every moment you take a breath- you’re a moment closer. Remove anything that does not enhance your life experience. Love every second and live everyday like you are dying tomorrow.
