Well, the time has come. No, I’m not dying. Not by any means. I simply think it’s time we had a talk about death.
I read this quote quite recently and it impacted me.
“Death scares us. And because it scares us, we avoid thinking about it, talking about it, sometimes even acknowledge it, even when it’s happening to someone close to us. Yet, in a bizzare, backwards way, death is the light by which the shadow of all of life’s meaning is measured. Without death, everything would feel inconsequential, all experience arbitrary, all metrics and values suddenly zero.”
Death and life are polar opposites. Just like the earth has north and south poles, and as magnets have north and south poles, so too we find that death occurs in nature 10x more often than life. Death is really the shaping force in our universe and we don’t stop to recognize or give thanks to it. If people never died, would our lands, oceans, and homes be bursting at the seams with overpopulation?
Anyway, I have got to run soon, Suri recently asked me to make a Snapchat (lol highschooolers) so I did. I am BACK and more excited than ever to get back to my website and my blog, which – for better or worse is becoming my journal. Proud of myself for getting up before 8am despite having been up since 1am. This unicorn curative is having quite the phenomenal day. Even got an email from a dispensary up north. Interview pending for the morrow. Gotta go. If you’re ever feeling like you need a dose of unicorn madness, just hit up my twitter or Instagram: @officialdakoda – I do keep things relatively updated and fresh.
