This existence seems to be merely an awareness based on fabricated thoughts and individualized perceptions we call “reality” that dictates most of our behaviors. This overall existence called “life” is mostly preferred over the notion of “death” because we usually don’t want to acknowledge the inevitable end of this perceived existence.
We choose what we believe, many times without realizing it, and continue our existence as if what we believe is an ultimate truth. We deceive ourselves with fantasies and illusions that nourish our egos and makes us feel secure and important… but it is all an attempt to distract us from our destiny: death.
We tend to want to belong to some kind of group and community , creating societies, in order to feel secured and protected (trying to recreate the experience inside the womb). But we often fail to realize and accept the fact that we are simply deceiving ourselves. Unconsciously afraid of facing the reality of our mortality.
And because of this profound fear, we continue our journey of biased perceptions attempting to maintain a state of awareness we call “happiness”, not realizing that it depends solely on circumstances that we choose to cherish.
This existence is slowly decaying and shutting down. This awareness will eventually cease to be present and we will not even know it has happened. All we can be aware of is what is experienced at the present moment. Right now.
Think about it.
