What is Death All About?
From the time you arrived through the portal into this world, Death has been your angel, your north star, your guru.
Death is the only constant reminder of how beautiful, fragile, and magical life really is. If you contemplate death in each moment, then Death encourages you to live with pure intent and purpose. It reminds you of why you are alive and having this experience in the first place.
How long will you wait until you allow Death to become your guide, your elder, your wisdom, your teacher?
Death reminds us to love, appreciate, and respect ourselves and our journeys, no matter what is going on externally. The single most important thing you can do in life is to experience and love yourself for exactly who you are, and then use your fulfilment and love to help others find themselves as well. We are here to collectively love and heal, but your part of the healing the collective starts with simply loving and healing your self.
How Does Life Change if You Contemplate Death?
In one breath, everything you know in this life can transform through death.
Is it worth waiting until a loved one passes, or a “near-death” experience occurs before you start living your moments in loving awareness?
How would the way you interact in a moment with your mother change if you knew it would be the last time you ever saw her? How much more open would your heart be? How much more love and compassion would you be sharing? How would the topics of your conversation change?
How would the interaction with your partner change if you knew that when they left you’d never see them again? Would you still argue from a place of jealousy, resentment, insecurity, judgement, or expectation? Would you take for granted the cosmic alliance and sacred connection that takes place while making love?
If you knew you were going to pass, how would it affect your needs and wants? How would it affect the way you spend your time? How would your priorities change?
Every interaction of each moment is a direct impact on the purpose and passion you bring to this world.
Death is What Makes Life Precious
Death is what makes life precious. If life was without death, nothing would have meaning. The scarcity of life is what gives it meaning.
Death is constantly showering you with meaning and purpose. Are you receiving the gifts or are you throwing them away?
Are you taking your moments for granted or are you appreciating them?
What if you allowed death to free you from all your pain and suffering, as opposed to blaming it for creating your pain and suffering?
Loving Your Death Teaches You to Love Yourself
Each tear that kisses your cheek when things feel heavy is a bonus. Each wiggle of your booty when life feels exciting is astonishing. Each inhalation of your angelic breath is pure magic. Every interaction in every experience you have is divine.
Whatever you are doing, do it so you feel it. Do it with intention and purpose. Do it with love for yourself. Do it with love for the world. Do it for the light.
Death is not morbid, it is serene. Death is not cold and dark, it is vibrant and bright. If you live in contemplation of death, everything will fall into place. You must be patient and trust the process.
When you love your death, you learn that being your authentic self is easy. There is no fear left to manipulate the way you think and interact in the external world.
Loving your death teaches you to love yourself.
