Monsoon soliloquy

Since we’ve all accepted our fates that we will eventually die someday, why fear death then?

Then it dawned on me: It is not death we are afraid of, but pain. Yes, pain and suffering. Y’see, nobody has died and came back to tell us about it, how it was or what’s it like. Death is an abstraction, neither pleasant nor foul… but we have seen many — family, friends, colleagues, even random people — writhe in agony as cancer eats through their flesh and bones or reduce their being to inanimate shells of their previous selves in their old age.

Deep in thought I was, when the crackling sound of lightning snapped me from this useless reverie…

Useless, yes. Because in my heart of hearts, I know: Nobody really wants to die.

About Seeing with Brahmin eyes
My sense of humor can be keen, sarcastic, silly or corny -- sometimes all at once. I enjoy meeting new people with no preconceived ideas about what or what is not possible. You get much more out of life by being open minded and willing. I'm an easy going, good-natured person who loves life and loves people. I'm both optimistic and realistic and pretty objective when it comes to assessing situations, events, etc. In general I am a very positive person and you'll usually find we with a smile on my face.
