Our individual mentality as human beings, will quite often deliberately confuse our rational with illogical ideas. In other words, our vision field can be easily distorted by what we would 'like' to believe. There's a quote that states, '...There are only two guarantees in life: Death and Taxes.' And logically, this is fact. So how do we embrace death without fear of absolute mortality?
We don't have to allow (our thinking about) death to get in way of life. When we empower ourselves to face each day with a positive attitude, in a sense, we are overcoming death. By understanding that in everything, there is a time, and a season - just like green leaves on age-old oaks, we too, will find our season. It is, afterall, our spirit, or essence that is left behind. Our life and sheer vitality that we emit is forever immortal.
While we struggle with daily routines, it is vital to one's wellbeing to find time to reflect and to nurture soul. Involving yourself in things that make your heart feel good, like volunteering at an animal shelter, lending a helping hand or visiting your local retirement center - these are just a few thoughts on nurturing spirit. Because when we give of ourselves, we receive so much in return. And this is what allows us to become spiritually immortal.
Johnny Carson was not 'immortal,' persay, but he immortalized his essence. We didn't necessarily like him because he had white hair or because he had a good physique - we welcomed his humor, his charm, his laughter, his wit, his intelligence. It was our perception of his qualities that made him seemingly infinite. Thus, when we smile, or do nice deeds, we can quietly cherish these moments in lucid reflection. And when we live for moment, our shells may not live forever, but our spirit - just like Mr. Carson - will be etched in hearts and lives of many.
