Dear “Death”

Dear Death,

Regarding your rather dark and threatening memo dated yesterday, thanks, but no thanks. I’m having no part of the mythical story you’re attempting to spread via fear mongering, subliminal messages, and outright deceit. Nice try; but aren’t you getting a little tired of spreading the same old same old? That skull-and-crossbones logo is passé, don’t you think? Perhaps you could attempt to sell us–the general public–another type of story. You know…a certain bridge for sale; shares in a swampland development; or cures for bunyons, acne, and warts.

Perhaps you haven’t heard, but there’s a spiritual movement that’s gaining momentum, here and now. Human beings are learning that they’re not who they think they are. They’re learning to recognize–and reconnect with–the deeper dimension of their essential nature that is beyond birth and death. They know they’re so much more than mere flesh and bones. They also know that the consciousness through which they live and move and have their being is impersonal–not personal. So basically, my message to you is this: The jig is up. Your pants are down. You can run, but you can’t hide. You may now cease and desist from your scare tactics.

I hope this won’t embarrass you, but I shared your recent message with as many people as I could; and I must admit that after reading it, all of us had a good chuckle and then…yawned; especially at that fire and brimstone part. We’ve seen through you. Your story’s getting very old. Perhaps you should engage some good ghost writers to punch up your story line.

As for you–you little beggar, you, I bid you farewell. You need not ever contact me again, either in person or via threatening emails. I’m on to you, and so are a lot of other beings. Personally, I wish you a fine, long, and warm stay in Hello, watching eternal reruns of Gilligan’s Island. Spoiler alert: They never did get off the island.

Dare to dream (and care for one another).

With heartfelt regards,
