If you want to be alive, say goodbye to everything now. If you knew that today was your last day of work, how would you take it? If you knew that the dish you wash was going to be the last one you would wash, how would you do it? If you knew that the moments you shared today with your neighbors, acquaintances and family members were the last ones you were going to have, how would they be? You would probably experience these moments as special and you would probably do your best to be at peace with everything and everyone. That is why the best formula for being really alive -in a continuously mindful state- is to privately bid farewell to everything all the time. Good bye!
