I keep talking about death, it’s my favorite subject. There’s nothing more important in the bloody world. Until you live with death, you don’t know what life is. What does it mean: ’live with death’? You must have a mature relationship to that reality! It’s one of the only two certainties that a person has - and ignores it! There are two things we know for sure: one, we were born, and two, we are going to die - the body anyways. There is not another bloody thought in your head that you can’t attach a question-mark to! Until these two facts are a ’living reality’, whatever is in-between birth and death has no real context - everything is subject to attack by the ’universe of devilish imagination’.
So, there, the secret is out: why all this recurring talk on death. It’s amazing the reaction that the average person has to the subject. It’s considered morbid. ’Morbid’ and ’death’, in linguistics, somehow get related. Morbid is terrible, it’s like black - the most horrible thing! That’s the biggest mistake a man makes. Death is the best thing that happens to us - if we’re ready. Because it’s really a birth! People should get excited with the thought of death - to be prepared for it!
But the least a person could do is to take the bullshit fear out of it! Death is inevitable. Stupid to be fearful and turn it into a horror, and fog-up your whole psyche.
The implications of the Death issue are so wide, but I’m not speaking of it for that reason alone. I’m inclined to rub that ’dirty word’ into peoples’ faces, until they get used to the smell. It doesn’t smell like anything else on earth - but you can live with it. It’s really not like a bad smell, it’s just that it’s so different!
