What would you do if you knew you only had one day left to live?… By Dee Delaney
Stop for a moment and really suck that one in.
Breath in and absorb every single word.
And now ask yourself - What would I do?
You might feel nervous, or perhaps even down right petrified -- like shit, what if it was true -- what then ?
This my loves is a question so few of us dare to ask, because it challenges the essence of our being, and asks us to look deeply into the nature of our reality.
This question pulls at my heart, because it came from my beautiful friend Magda, who died unexpectedly at 35. She was a yogi, a bright soul and in perfect health.
She posted this on Facebook 2 weeks before she passed. Her words say it all.
What would you do if you knew you only had one day left to live?
How would you spend that last day?
Worrying, scrolling through Facebook, arguing, having meaningless conversations, being angry? Trying to fix other people's problems? Prove to them you are right?
Or doing everything you love, spending time with your loved ones, enjoying every moment?
What if you thought there was nothing, and you didn't actually know anything - no God, no heaven, what would you do then? If you thought that it was only you, and everything was inside you all along?
Now whatever you would do then, is a pure reflection of what is inside you. If you would spend that last day running around and helping as many people as you could, giving them love, it's because all there is inside you is pure love, you just can't see it.
If you would spend that last day doing terrible things, seeking revenge, it's because you have accumulated so much negativity and you simply don't know what to do with it. It's not your fault. You didn't know any better.
If you would spend that last day preaching, it's because you are committed to truth. So committed that you forgot what love means.
Everything on the outside is just a mirror. Whatever we see in others is what is inside us. And whatever is inside is just pure divinity which we cannot see yet. But we will, when we all realise that we are all one.
If you read this, see if you can spend tomorrow committing to love. Enjoying every moment, as much as you can. Doing things for yourself and for others. Just being happy. Nothing else. Giving and receiving love.
You never know how much time you have left. So enjoy every moment as if it was the last one…
