The Good

Are You Fighting For Death?

-

Death can be a goal, just like life is a goal. Some fight for a noble sense of who they want to be. Some fight for everlasting mortal life. Some fight for eternal spiritual life. Some fight for a noble death. Others just die. The immortals do exist, they watch us like ants on a hill. But even if we don’t aspire to their levels of greatness we should, as a bare minimum, try to get to the point of fighting for a noble death. There are easy ways to die and then there are meaningful ways to die.

Choose Challenges

We all have a choice in life as to who we are going to be and what challenges we are going to accept. The noble amongst us accept as many challenges as they can find. The cowardly wait until a challenge hits them in the face before they decide to react in a fight or flight manner. The happiest people seek out their challenges, as they know them to be eternal. The saddest people bemoan their challenges in a way that lets them define their defeat. You are never dead until you are dead.

Don’t let your challenges make you sad or complacent. You are more than your problems. You are a riddle fixer for a person. Riddle me this: what challenge is not scary at the outset?

ch 50 tao te ching

Between birth and death,
Three in ten are following life,
Three in ten are following death,
And men just passing from birth to death also number three in ten.
Why is this so?
Because they live their lives on the gross level.

He who knows how to live can walk abroad
Without fear of rhinoceros or tiger.
He will not be wounded in battle.
For in him rhinoceroses can find no place to thrust their horn,
Tigers can find no place to use their claws,
And weapons no place to pierce.
Why is this so? Because he has no place for death to enter.
