Death is not a thing; Life is

To define Life

A life written about is somewhat betrayed.

In a sense, words somehow dim emotions, nullify thoughts, darken the light out of smiles and blur beauty to be bearable.

Because truth is, anything spiritual, emotional, untouchable is beyond the language of the human race.

When life is over, G-d ceases his generous whispers of life. Dying doesn't occur. Death doesn't come. Death is always there. Death isn't a thing; life is. We're naturally lifeless. Only G-d, in His infinite kindness overrides this death with loving blows of vibrant life.

And we... tend to run away from life far too often. Searching to disappear in worlds where we can be what our darkness dares to desire without that of a consience, guilt or regrets. We make our lives low enough to write out on a sheet of paper.

And suddenly, when death strikes or threatens, we unwillingly awaken. And then questions appear.

Why? Why is this happening to me? Don't I deserve life? Don't I deserve good? Where am I in this world? What am I doing with my life?

And that's when our lives truly begin. when we realize that life is something more than food and drink to sustain a body, than just surviving, even more than talents, hobbies, competition and physical achievements.

That's when we realize that everything we need to soar is implemented in our souls and no amount of running around the world to search will uncover more than what we have deep within ourselves; that we must delve into our inner selves to connect with our light and then we will have the ability to spread it and have a positive effect on the people around us, and so, base our lives off positivity and happiness and desire for growth.

And then... the journey begins...
