This basic fact is: “The moment you are born, you are simultaneously dying”…let that sink in for a bit….
Life only exists because of death, and death exists because of life, they are polar opposites of the same thing, one can’t exist without the other.
The problem is that when we cling to life, we then become afraid of death. We cling to life, because most of us never enjoy life in its totality, so we become afraid of death, which is the root cause of all our fears.
The reality is that whatever fulfillment we are searching for is available to us in this very moment, it is the first and last freedom.
When you learn to live every moment of your life for its own sake, each moment will then be lived totally, you will use it all up, no matter how mundane. You will be constantly fulfilled.
When each moment is lived totally, the fear of death begins to disappear. You quit clinging to life and actually start to live it, you go beyond fear.
Next time you are impatiently waiting for the future to arrive, remember that whatever you’re waiting for to happen, will happen, but don’t sacrifice these precious moments just because you think the future is going to be better.
