“a good time” – reflection

“We’re not here for a long time,

                         we’re here for a good time!”

REFLECTION:

How would you define – “a good time”?

 xLg Cerro Torre, Los Glaciares National Park, Patagonia, Argentina

What words does this photo “speak” to you?  –  Within you?

About you?    About how you live?    About how you spend your time?

About your past hopes & dreams?    About your plans for the future?

About the beauty you have experienced,

                           and the beauty you want to experience – in your life?

What are you doing to make all of that happen?

Life after Death

Life after Death ?

“I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail.  There is no heaven or afterlife for broken-down computers.  That is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.”

Thoughts at the Moment of my Death

 

To relax into Death

Knowing it is natural

Knowing it is unavoidable

Knowing it is happening.

 

To relax into Death

Dying with comfort of mind & spirit.

 

To relax into Death

Life’s timeline now ending

Some dreams realized – – others not

It is OK.

 

To relax into Death

The journey nears its end

The chance of being

The flicker of the flame of life

Growing dim.

 

To relax into Death

One last breath

The last of the air that gives life

The last moment of Living

Taken within

Finished

Death.

 

Oh Glorious Passing

That comes with such:

          Grace

          Stillness

          Peace

          For all.

Memories.

Your Death – – by OTL

Unless you understand death,

          you will not comprehend living.

 

How you live each and every day,

Defines your understanding of death.

 

The myths you may or may not use in

          understand death,

Shape your reality in the living of each moment.

 

Belief in the here-after,

Belief in the only here-and-now,

          Expresses itself in each moment you are alive.

Eschatology may be the study of Death – Then What,

It best expresses itself in the – Now So What.

 

In either case – you may be living a lie!

OR NOT.

Walk with Me

They’re All Dead

Close your eyes, take a couple of deep breaths.

Breath in slowly – hold, – – – then breath out – – – slowly.

Do that again.

Relax into yourself.

Quiet your being.

Now,  let your mind wander back years, – – maybe many years

                                                                                    to your childhood.

Go back to your home, your street, your neighborhood.

Look at all those people you have known over the years.

Look at them.

See their faces.

See them standing there, or sitting over there.

See them going about their day.

Look at them.

Look closer.

Their lives have come and gone.

Their time has passed.

Many have been dead for years.

It’s over.

They are long gone.

Think of all those people.

People you have known, people you remember.

It is all over.

They’re dead.

They’re all dead.

And, – – –  you will be too!

Be Still – – – and Know

Toilet Paper – a thought

Life is like a roll of toilet paper – –

The closer you get to the end

                                    – – – – – – – – the faster it goes.

Life – Mystery

Life

     is not

               a problem to be solved

     but

               a mystery to be lived.

 

 

 

 

REFLECTION:

It is often said:   “a picture is worth a thousand words.

That being the case;  what words do these photos say to you?

About you?    About how you live?

About how you spend your time?    About your past hopes & dreams?

About your plans for the future?

About the beauty you have experienced,

and the beauty you want to experience – in your life?

About the mystery of this moment and all your moments?

About how you approach living?

Is it a problem,

Or

Is it the wonder and awe of mystery?

What are you doing to make all of that happen?

Be Still – – – and Know
