than to raise our filter of skepticism
and ask the hard questions.

Fear of the unknown is
the greatest fear of humankind,
and death the greatest unknown.
Acknowledging these doubts and the fears
is a powerful beginning.
It is liberating to say,

lies in living in the moment -
enjoying what you are doing today.
You don't need a reason to be happy,
just a choice.
