Dear Fellow Reader,
Until scientists figure out otherwise, there’s really no way of knowing when and in which form death may arise.
I was born on the Day of the Dead, a tradition through which peace is made with death — without fear, it is embraced.
Welcoming it, should it arise.
Live through life as though you’re dead, not spiritually — but as though you’ve got nothing to lose.
It seems like an elaboration of course, certain things are too dangerous too pursue.
But so is uncertainty.
Do not be afraid of what lies ahead, because it is unknowable and unpredictable.
No matter how much we attempt to control it, it is well beyond our reach.
So, if there is a message that we can take from the exuberant culture of the People of Mexico and the Day of the Dead, it is simply this;
Live through life and make peace with death, accept that it will come someday, and before it presents itself — you should be well on your path to accomplish your dreams or have realised it.
Never stop to think and wonder what could’ve, should’ve, or would’ve been.
Let’s get on with it, and give it a shot.
It’s not bullshit motivation, it’s fact — you’ve got to try.
Keep trying, keep pushing, and keep moving.
We’ll fall and we’ll hurt a few times, but we’ll learn to get back up again and we’ll be stronger; because we would’ve learnt how to avoid falling again.
We’ve already fallen before, hence we’d know what it feels like; takes the fear right out of the equation.
Failure is an important factor for growth, so is pain and suffering.
Live through life as though it is your last day — and pursue, make an attempt to realise your passion.
Don’t stand still waiting for the magic to happen.
Pursuit and Effort is key for survival and self-realisation.
Be content with death, and know that it will happen — it’s an alarm clock we don’t want to wake up to.
Hence, beat the clock before it catches up with time.
If Shia Labeouf says, “DO IT” — seriously, “Atleast, Try!”
Just take this fella for an example,
So let this be a message to you lovely fellas, pursue your passion — at least give it a shot.
Best of luck with your pursuit in your future endeavours,
Don’t be this guy, though.
