The only way to be immortal is not to know that you are. Forever is a gift craved until it is won, then it expands like an ocean without land in sight. Things precious are finite, cherished as fleeting moments in that thing we call time. Seek not life eternal, but be eternally in the moment of life, fully conscious and holding creation as sacred. Give and receive love, find peace within and let it flow out into the world as refreshing as spring rains. Be mortal and immortal every moment that you breathe, curious, warm hearted - a spirit wild and free.

Many people think that being immortal is a bliss, something that is priceless, a thing that one would do next to anything for. Their thoughts confuse me greatly; is it a bliss to live long enough to see all your loved ones die? To wander around the world in loneliness, for every friend you ever made have run out of time to spend with you? I think not. It is not a bliss, if anything, it is a curse.
