I’ve had a powerful meditation lately that I’ve been trying out.

I imagine that the Universe has millions of years before me and millions of years after me, and that life is short. Not too hard for me to do.

And I sink into the finality of my death.

In these moments my death is as real to me as the computer on which I type and the breath that leaves and enters my lungs.

This is not an exercise in morbidity. It is extracting power from reality.

When I live as if I were already dead, fear goes away.

If I’m already dead I have nothing to lose.

What this meditation has done for me is helped me enter a state experience through which I can live with total abandon. I’ve only accessed it fully a couple of times. But my experience of it has been very powerful.

Tell me, are you going to live forever?
