Questions of Will
By Don Iannone

Are you willing to live
...for what you believe?
Are you willing to let die
...that part of you that won't believe?
Are you willing to see
...living and dying as the same thing?
Are you willing to go beyond
...all notions of will, and
all notions of living and dying
...and just be?

What a challenge!

"To live for what you believe"

These are some deep thoughts to start the morning ... am I willing? Do I have a choice? I believe that living and dying is the same, because life is all there is and one comes out of one womb, only to go into another.

Liquidplastic,

You got it! Yes, to live for what we believe, and even to live beyond.

Thanks Rob...I think so too. You know 99.9% of the time I am talking to/advising myself...I need the reminding.
