Hello and hi again. Today I just wanted to write down some of my thoughts, without any particular reason and without having something in mind of what I could do with this one. But wait… Why don’t I just write them down as an article and make all of you react to it?
I borrowed one song title to be my Headline for today. To Live is To Die from Metallica. I know that in one of my previous articles I wrote that the dead do not stay dead, but there is another whole new point here. Why to live is to die? Two different verbs, two different meanings. Life and Death.
Let me take one by one these two verbs and write down some thoughts. What does to live means and what does to die means?
I have written in another article of me that to live means to communicate with others and to die means when you cannot have communication with no other. Here the point is completely different. When I say that to live is to die I mean that you cannot say that you have lived if you haven’t died. So if you haven’t spent a period of your life in completely solitude and without having communication with other people, you don’t or can’t know what to live means.
Life and Death are two meanings, two different things that throughout humanity people have tried to understand. If you read history or mythology books of ancient civilizations you will notice that for every other civilization life and death had separate meanings. For Ancient Egyptians Life was just a passage from this world so as to be able to be with the Gods in the afterlife which is death. For ancient Greeks death was just another life either in the Elysian Fields or in Hades. So if you search you will see that for different groups of people, civilizations, historical time, Life and Death mean a completely different thing.
So my point here is different to the previous one when I told you that the dead don’t stay dead. My point here is that life and death are two different situations. That you cannot live if you haven’t died and that you cannot die if you haven’t lived.
In my opinion and in my trust, life and death are two interdependent situations that you have to completely understand and above all that you have not to fear each one of them so as to be able to live a whole life and die another whole death. It might seem strange to some of you but believe it or not there are many people out there that are afraid to live and more afraid to die.
Live a whole life so as to be able to die a whole death. And above all, dream your death. Imagine it as it was another life. Imagine and dream how you would like to die a beautiful death as you imagine or dream how to live a beautiful life.
Till next time, I am waiting for your thoughts, comments and messages. Be well boys and girls.
