Living and Dying

Filed under: John Morgan's Blog — John Morgan @ 6:31 am

C411481 mI had an interesting idea over the weekend: Living and dying are both happening at the same time, so living is a matter of focus.

We begin to live and die the day we are born. We spend a huge amount of that time paying attention to living and a small portion of time dedicated to dying.

Are we really living, or are we existing for the major portion of our life? I submit that we are existing and the way to morph into living is to die.

Existing is a concept in our head; living is a feeling in our body. The concept has to die in order for us to live.

We return to real living when we exit our head and return to our body. Watch a toddler. They are living. Paraphrasing the Bible: “Unless you become like children, you’ll never enter the kingdom of heaven.”

Living in your head is an existing hell.

You can think about, but not experience a concept. The experience happens when the concept disappears. To experience living more often, we have to die a thousand little deaths. That means to notice that we are attempting to live in our head and shift our attention to our body. Take a moment to focus on the sensations your body is feeling. Every moment spent with what you are sensing allows the concept of living to die.

What does it feel like to be alive for you? Don’t think about it; feel it!

When you contemplate what life should be like, you are just existing. When you shift your attention to the sensations your body actually feels, you start to live again.

Are you living or dying? It’s a simple matter of focus.

All the best,

John
