“What have we given?
My friend, blood shaking my heart
The awful daring of a moment's surrender
Which an age of prudence can never retract
By this, and this only, we have existed.”
― T.S. Eliot, The Waste Land
There is a conflict inside with people. Acquire, consume, find, destroy? Help, harvest and share, live with less, help with hope? We are only gifted the one life, unless you are Lazarus.* So how do you live it? Do you harvest and help? Or acquire and consume? Do you assume that life is for partying, or for helping others?
I was a memory before I became a ghost before I became free. You have to remember, every person trapped in the material world, by their flesh cage is holding on to their winnings in a meaningless lottery. They don't get to keep it. Ever.
So, when I die people will remember me.
Then my words about the world will haunt them.
And then, they'll see that I was right, and that I am free.
* (After he had said this, he went on to tell them,
"Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep; but I am going there to wake him
up." John 11:11)
