The master and the child

There’s a lot of fear going on right now.

Fear of the inevitable.

I’ve heard of soldiers talking about accepting that you’re already dead giving them the courage to do amazing things.

Mask or no mask, 2020 or 2050, virus or cancer, starvation or war, disaster or simply fading away… I’m going to die. You’re going to die.

It’s easier to live life with eyes open towards others, and a big fat smile on your face, when you embrace that.

So two movie inspirations for you if you need an “I’m gonna die” rewiring.

And the child…

“You. Are going. To die. … what else is there to be afraid of?”
