BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, November 12th, 2014 by Michael Tamura in YOU ARE THE ANSWER

“Author Gregg Levoy tells us in his book, “Callings,” that in the Afghani language, the verb “to cling” is the same as “to die.” Facing our death shifts our perspective on life, and consequently our relationship to it. It reveals to us all the lies that we are living, all that we are clinging to with a “death grip.” Most of us don’t want to die. Yet few of us ARE TRULY LIVING. We tend to be sleepwalkers, attached to illusions, people, beliefs and things that become substitutes for living. Choosing life involves a loosening of our death-grip on our attachments, a surrendering of the illusions we tend to snooze in.”

Michael J. Tamura, in “You Are the Answer”
