You came from the energy, you are the energy and you will return to the energy

This week saw the passing of The Doors’ keyboardist Ray Manzareck. In 2010, Newstalk’s Orla Barry asked him about what happens when you die and he replied:

“Energy… you go into the energy. You came from the energy, you are the energy and you will return to the energy… to the absolute divine, joyous energy that is all things. That’s where you come from and that’s where you go.

“It’s a circle. Life is of course a great circular infinity. And it’s marvellous. It’s absolutely, totally comforting, you don’t have to live in fear anymore. You can put the fear behind you and embrace all of existence.”

Newstalk have a clip of him discussing this. .

This Is Water

David Foster Wallace’s “This is Water” is one of my favourite pieces of writing ever, and someone has taken part of it, and made it into a lovely short film. I see this as a really important part of my world view and something I *try* to practice everyday.
