It was a slow death….
One second you’re alive, the next you’re dead.
Alive/dead; it’s as simple as that.
You might be ill or in pain for a while;
But death is instantaneous.
Awake, asleep, you don’t notice.
You only know you fell asleep when you awake.
Anaesthetist puts the canula in your arm;
“Goodnight” and you’re gone.
You only know you were gone when you’re in recovery.
So dying is not a problem, one second you’re alive and next you’re not.
In meditation or everyday live you are aware and focused,
And then the mind has wandered.
You had a ‘mini death’;
Some people are never aware and focused;
They are zombies.
The better you meditate,
The more mindful you become;
The more you are alive.
Aware and focused or zombie?
