Wish you were here!
I can tell you one thing, every person who has been within, has called out to the entire humanity and called out "Wish, you were here!" Because there is no place like home! And that's your home (pointing to the heart).
When people are told by doctors that they've only 6 months to live, first it's hard to digest it. But once they come to terms with it, I've seen them getting bubbly. They become conscious and start enjoying everyday! "I don't wanna be distracted" But why does it have to be dire straits before clarity kicks in? Can't we have it before the dire straits? And you know what that process is called? Being Conscious.
You want to pray? Great! But what should your prayer be like? Santa Claus's wishlist? Or should the prayer be "Thank you! Thank you for this life, for this breath, for today, for this moment". But it isn't. Because there is no experience of today.
