Wake Up

“You cannot live without dying. You cannot live if you do not die psychologically every minute. This is not an intellectual paradox. To live completely, wholly, every day as if it were a new loveliness, there must be dying to everything of yesterday, otherwise you live mechanically, and a mechanical mind can never know what love is or what freedom is.”  ~Krishnamurti (source)

Or, as Arlo Guthrie put it:

I promise you

Sunshine, come on back another day,
I promise you I’ll be singing
This old world, she’s gonna turn around,
brand new bells will be ringing…

“We are all connected…”

From an interview with Peter Yarrow:

Q: Per the lyrics of the Peter, Paul and Mary song, “And When I Die,” do you truly not fear death?

A: That song expressed something the trio all embraced, but it wasn’t so much about not being afraid of dying. It’s saying that life isn’t just there when it’s there and gone when it’s gone. We are connected to each other, part of each other. Mary Travers is dead, but she is in every song that I sing. When I open my mouth to sing, you can hear her in it. There is something beyond what we understand that makes us part of each other. And that song was an assertion that we go on living in others; our lives are continuous.
