The body is a microcosm of the larger, cosmic process of life and death. How do we move along that spectrum, how do we deal with the changes, how do we stay in touch with Actual Reality? Granted, I’m an oddball, but still, maybe my experience will have meaning for you.
I’m not just dying, I’m living. Living and dying at the same time. And finding the balance between living and dying is as hard – or harder – than finding the balance between work and family, self-interest and the interest of something larger than oneself, protein and carbs.
Was my relationship with Actual Reality real enough to withstand an encounter with the Ultimate Reality – Mortality? And yes! So far, I’ve been great with that reality as well. So why am I writing this blog?
