One may think that death, is something to be feared. Certainly death, although being a necessary end, can be a frightening prospect. But the fact remains that death will come to us all in the end, and fearing it, will not do us any good. As a matter of fact, fear is what keeps us humans from becoming the brilliant species we were made to be. Surely there are practical fears that we are hardwired to obey as part of our natural instinct, such as heights, a shark attack etc. etc. … however, there are other, more irrational fears that the human race have developed that if discarded, could unleash a greater potential in our existence. It’s the fears that are tied to our emotions that are the ones that should be discarded. Those are irrational because of the memories they are tied to. Back to my first post, each moment makes a difference. The moments that have been especially traumatic or strongly pressed into our memories are the ones that control our irrational fears, or happiness’s or whatever you’d like to tie them to. So even if obviously we can’t discard those memories as unimportant, the crucial revelation here is that we need to move on from them.
However, all this ranting is beside the point. Shakespeare once said “To be or not to be. That is the question.” And we, as humans have forgotten that simple truth. We can live, or die. Some are afraid of life and escape to death, just as many fear death, and seek immortality, but either way you do not have a choice that is made on your own, for life will move along or end without asking your permission.
