Living is so much more interesting than dying

On living more fully here and now

“Where will I/we go after I/we die?” is the wrong question.

It takes you to unknowable questions and intense judgement.

It stokes our insatiable human desire to have certainty about things that impossible to be certain about.

An infinitely better question is, 

How can I/we live more fully here and now?

Asking questions about life are (less obviously than you’d think) life giving.

Asking deterministic and zero-sum questions about death, are (less obviously than you’d think), life taking.

It’s human nature to crave certainty.

But the transcendent life is the one lived in the limitless, eternal now.
