Death is stripping away of all that is not you. The secret of life is to “ die before you die”- and find that there is no death.
What I have become, I don’t want to know anymore! I have been fed to all that I am not and I only came to know about that when I faced death.
I identified with my mind. I let it dwell on my fears which gave me sufferings and frustrations. It made me to shed tears for my past and worry for my future.
It stole my ‘now’. It overpowered me, I became its prey and it fed my life. I became my failures, my sufferings which lingered only in the past. It became my sense of self.
Who am I ? Just my failure or suffering ? No it can’t be true. I cannot be the figment of my mind, just a mere thought?
No I can’t let my smitten mind feed me. For that I have to die before I actually die.
I have to stop thinking, I have to come out of my unconscious self and cling on my heart beat which exist in the ‘now’. I have to breathe in my present and exhale my past.
This will kill my ego, my fear, my sufferings and all that is born out of my past and future.
My false self will die and my true self will emerge from the eternal now.
I am not the past and future , I am all that is happening right now !
Wonderful writing. To be present in now is a big task for the mind. Syncing of the heart and mind is important. The pictures are amazing with an awesome title.

Lovely words Piyush. I love the tolle quote as well. So true. The secret to life is falling in love death. Only when we realise that death is not something to fear can we truly be at peace – completely free in the present moment. Wishing you well friend 🙏

This is really, really well said. Even “knowing” what I do, I definitely struggle with this at times. Oh, I love this ending: “My false self will die and my true self will emerge from the eternal now. / I am not the past and future, I am all that is happening right now !”
