The absence of proof is not necessarily proof of any evidence. You want to hold certainty in your hands and it can’t be done. It’s not available. The proof of life is in living and being aware of your humanness.
Imagine: You lie dying on a bed. Do you speak about politics, religious indifference, race or cultural issues? Nope! You speak about loved ones. You tell stories of your lovers and spouses. You share about your childhood. You do not listen to this timeline full of sensational news. You don’t care what is happening out there. You want to know about places far and wide that you didn’t get to visit. You express your love of sunrises, fast cars, delicious food and beautiful company. You marvel at the journey, often with regret and other times with admiration. Politics, war, injustice and indifference do not matter at this time. They are not held captive in your presence.
Why? Why do we give so much energy to those things that will not reside in later years when we will be ready to transition into death?
Make your thoughts count. Create energetic moments that will transcend your existence when you are in your last breath. You are a creator of your reality. At the end of your life you will remember the first pretty girl you kissed, the puppy you got that Christmas, the horse ride you took in the trip, the way your child felt upon your chest…. You will not care how much money you owed or if you cleaned under the bed or if there is expired food in the pantry. Life is a precious commodity so use it for greatness. Make moments count so that when you are ready to embark into the light you will feel joy and not sorrow; love and not hatred, admiration and not regrets.
Go be happy. Fake it till you make it if you must. But, remember that you decide how you feel and react to everything that happens around you. Don’t keep waiting for a tomorrow that might never arrive.
Have a blessed day y’all! Mucho love!

You are right we should spend our days embracing happiness. But as my health often gives me an audience with death I do concern myself with the affairs of the world. I may not be able to do anything about them but I worry for my grandchildren and for their children. We are but visitors on this earth, guardians for the generations to follow and it is our responsibility to secure a better world for them. Sadly at this time I feel we are failing. Yes we can pass happiness on but all the politics and social issues will always get in the way. You know Millie as I we live in a messy world but I think our future looks bright. I think when we are facing imminent death we will be hoping for the future of our offsprings. A government concern with ecology, economicso and finding peace among our fellow humanbeings. Maybe I’m too social conscious.
Hey Millie I scheduled a post for the 10th where I elaborate on both our thoughts. Couldn’t add a link.
I look forward to reading it. You are magnificent. Sending healing vibes to you!
Sactually it will be on the 11th I had a poem scheduled for the best 10th. You are magnificent yourself.
