Death, My Guide | Death, My Advisor | Surprise!

I was recently enjoying the YouTube video “A Chorus Line”, and the dancing impressed me so much that I decided to learn more about the dancers. When I arrived at the biography of Gregg Burge, on Wikipedia, I sadly found that he had died of a brain tumor at the age of 40. His dancing had been described as ‘spectacular’, and after seeing his leaps and moves on his number “Surprise” I agree . . . spectacular!

The rest of the superb performers had changed drastically. Time takes its toll, and Death comes whenever our appointment is due. Life is but a moment in time, and then it vanishes. Death helped me to see . . .


I thought that I would be able to explain what I internalized upon finding out about Mr Burge’s death and the others’ change, but I am at a loss for words; this happens when we try to explain the unexplainable. But perhaps you’ll ‘see’ it between the lines if you pay attention, stop babbling  to yourself, and use your inner eye.

There is only here and now, and it never comes again. And we die but we don’t. It is a dream. Our nightmares materialize when our ego holds the baton. Random thought is a trap. Enjoy the dance! Enjoy the dream! Death is coming . . . perhaps today. Let it be your best day ever.
