Excerpts from Alan Watts “Memento Mori” Lecture 

I have often puzzled and puzzled,
about what it must be like,
to go to sleep and never wake up
to be,
simply not there,
forever and ever.

But we are inclined to have in our mind,
a picture of this
of being shut up in the dark for always and always,
to be kind of buried alive in the blackness

And we think
Ooh this is it
This is the end
And so at death we withdraw
no no no, not that
Not yet
Please!

And you accepted it.
And suddenly something changed
There was a strange feeling that
everything is absolutely clear.
You suddenly see that there isn´t a grain of dust in the whole universe that´s in the wrong place.
The reason we die is to give us the opportunity to understand what live is all about.
Just think
When you opened your eyes on the world, for the first time as a child
How brilliant colors were
What a jewel the sun was.
What marvel the stars.

Memento Mori
Be mindful of death.
