I’ve seen enough of life (and HBO) to know that wealth, fame, unbelievable good looks, or an insane level of talent cannot free a person from anxiety. Sometimes the possession of those things just amplifies it!
Obviously, all of the “If-I-just-had-__________, -I’d-be-happy” talk is bull.
So, do we have to be dead to be at peace?
It is always such a struggle when life is asking for things we don’t want to yield.
So, when I quit worrying about losing my time, plans, money, freedom, health, youth, relationships, or possessions and just share them freely and easily, as if I were dead, I can experience amazing peace and freedom from anxiety without having to “off” myself.
Hasn’t life been asking me to do that all along?
That’s fearlessness. That’s courage.
