“It is best as one grows older to strip oneself of possessions, to shed oneself downward like a tree, to be almost wholly earth before one dies.”

Death

Death, what a symbolic gesture it has become. We give ourselves a moment of silence to remember a life someone lived. A whole life succumbed to a moment of silence. A funeral often takes place just a few days after someone has left us. It didn’t even hit you yet that they will no longer wake up. It feels like we are on the hamster wheel. Life rushes through us as we rush through life. We touch so many lives, yet only a few will carry our memories in their hearts.

As I reflect on death, I reflect on my life. I choose to focus on the love I feel inside. The love that will never die even when someone is no longer present physically here on Earth.

Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.” Steve Jobs

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

Gabriele Policardo

«Nessuno vince, nessuno perde, nessuno trionfa, nessuno fallisce. Non c’è dunque alcuna guerra, nessun bisogno di guerrieri, spirituali e non. Siamo tutti in movimento, come piume cadute sulle onde. Dobbiamo fare della leggerezza la nostra religione quotidiana.».
