Life is a theme park . . . There are roller coasters . . . and attractions that raise the adrenalin level, much like the incredibly attractive but VERY crazy Sherri from a couple of decades ago . . . and of course, those very neutral things which we find comfortably appealing, and that's where we tend to gravitate just before leaving the park . . .
I was at the gym today during the late afternoon and it was going really well . . . The plan was to go hard today, and that's exactly what was happening . . .
A while into it all, I was between sets two and three of bench presses and realized . . . I'm ready . . . As in, ready to leave this life, and get onto the next . . .
It wasn't morbid or sad or negative . . . In fact, it was very comforting . . . I'm ready to go spiritually, but not hoping it happens . . . There's a HUGE difference, as I know you'll understand . . .
Coming to terms with one's own mortality is SO important in life . . . The reconciliation with one's own demise is the door to ultimate freedom! If we stop worrying, and respect and look forward to our leaving this life, it gives us tremendous freedom to carry on with joy and compassion!
Our passing is NOT the end . . . It represents a new beginning! Think about it . . .
All the more reason to think beautiful thoughts . . .
Until next time . . . Ciao!!
