When I think about death sometimes, like for anybody, I am gripped with fear. The fact that I am nothing, I am no longer, that one day everything that I have ever loved will be removed from this planet, it's almost unfathomable.
But the reassuring thing is that if I am nothing, I must also be everything. If no part of my physical body remains, then every single part of it, every single cell and every single molecule, has been transformed back into the massive soup of matter that makes up the entire Universe.
You can not possibly be more at one with the totality of everything you love, and everyone you have ever loved, than to dissolve into them all. No separation. Closer than you could ever be when stuck in the confines of a human body, a body that has edges and boundaries. Dissolving into the primordial soup of it all is the ultimate reconnection. A coming home to everything you've ever loved that has gone before you.
Now every time I think, "I am nothing" and I fear that nothing I have ever done or ever will do actually matters in the long run, I remind myself that equally true is "I am everything."
And so are you. You are everything. You are inseperable from everything you have ever desired or wanted or felt love for or connected with.
So here is how I have painted this moment of transition, when I am equally becoming nothing and equally becoming everything.
I am nothing and I am everything, all at once. I hope you love it.
