Yesterday I watched three awesome TED talks, and they got me thinking about death, life and time in a broader perspective.
The first is ‘More to dying than meets the eye’: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vg8WAv0YT9c
It’s a beautiful talk about easing the process of death and dying.
It filled me with wonder at life and reminded me of what’s important.
The second is ‘Dying to be me!’: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rhcJNJbRJ6U
This is about a near-death experience, of how it became the greatest gift and the 5 big lessons it brought.
I know this is a lot about death, and I’m starting to think that if we openly spoke more about death, we’d probably have less fear and we’d lead richer and happier lives!
And then I watched ‘The art of making impossible, possible’: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6XNrzmh0EVs
I was impressed by the speaker’s fearlessness. In the last few minutes she talks about how things take TIME. It reminded me that if it everything happened overnight, we might not have the same joy and satisfaction and fulfillment… It made me appreciate the time some things take to happen. It reminds me that I need to have patience and trust the process.
I am going to die someday. I have no idea when.
I guess all I have is this moment. Right now. This moment, to do what feels right. This moment, to listen to the whispers of my heart and head.
Right now I feel so grateful for this moment. For this opportunity to do what I feel called to do.
And to learn and grow and love and live.
