There’s a popular saying, “Here today, gone tomorrow”; however, there’s also the saying, “Tomorrow never comes”. But, I’m of a mindset which claims “Today’s the only reality/actuality we have at our disposal” as stated by the other saying, “Today’s a gift, a ‘Present'”, as it’s understood.

It therefore appears, according to my reasoning, that we’re never really gone! Still, we the living find such comprehension inconceivable. After all, when someone dies, to all pretence and purposes s/he is no longer with us. Ipso facto, s/he is gone, left this mortal coil, absent – no longer present among the rest of us.

For once either-or-both cease to be a conscious acquaintance, the Void/Nothingness resumes and therein lies the calamity, the abyss, the dread of non-being.

It is this state to which I’ve become acquainted through experimentation with altered

states experiences, to lesser and greater degrees, which afforded me a deeper-and-truer appreciation for Life.
