(I'm not going to try to quote it word for word,
Think about when you die and leave your body, what is left, what are "you"?
You are consciousness, that's the you that survives.
I'm not sure what clicked so well for me but I pretended that I (my body) had died.
I, my consciousness, was the same, just like it is now.
The only difference, no physical body.
Ever since that little experiment, I have been looking at the world in a slightly different way.
I hope I can make it stick with me, I like it, I feel a little braver.
Getting older makes me feel like I have less to lose anyway, this really adds to it.
Anyway, I hope that whole thing made sense to at least some of you.
