In his book, I: Reality and Subjectivity, Dr. David R. Hawkins notes that the exact time of our death is already determined at our birth. This one statement—verified with kinesiology— implies that we’ve made choices regarding our life that not only include our birth time, but also the endpoint of our life experience.
If our life endpoint is already determined, then how we live today is more important than anything else. I’m reminded of the Native American expression, “Today is a good day to die.” This radical, fearless expression of living life with no regrets and no worries contrasts deeply with today’s ceaseless programming by corporate media to “be afraid, be very afraid.” What does living fearlessly feel like? If you absolutely knew you would die tomorrow, how would you live today?
Can you remember how serious life seemed in high school? How scary do your high school affairs seem now? The only thing that has changed from that time is your perspective — your “distance” in time. Now remember how serious the last two years have seemed. You’ve survived all the security alerts, and you can’t even remember the names of all those scary biotoxins that used to keep you up at night. By adopting a broad perspective and living fearlessly, today’s events will also appear non-threatening. Refocus on the entire landscape of your life — the Divine timing and the synchronicities will become clear. From this perspective, the rise and fall of political regimes, news of “the economy,” and news of the latest “killer” disease are neither captivating nor scary.
This is the value of vacations and retreats. For a short while, we clean up our day-today life affairs to the point that we can step away from our computer and TV and enjoy time alone or with friends and family. We reminisce and we plan, and our big picture comes back into focus. We remember what is important and what is ephemeral. We remember that people and relationships matter. We remember that love and kindness are more important than the material gains that we experience in this lifetime. And, if we’re fortunate, we remember that we just might die tomorrow and we fully experience the richness of each precious moment today.
Enjoy your summer!
