I never thought about death in this way. Very interesting perspective…especially love this part: “Mortal death, specifically the Death passage of the natural dying process, is the most dynamic and sacred (and unjustly feared) Death passage we experience as human beings. Mortal Death removes us spiritually and psychically from the weights of the dense, material (physical) body in order to enable us to segue into a fully conscious and active life within the more subtle realms of existence, (such as those we experience during sleep, deep psychic perception, religious ecstacy or the rush of creative inspiration…), on a full time basis.”
“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it’s a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it’s a way of making contact with someone else’s imagination after a day that’s all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”—Nora Ephron (via atomos)
