Chapter 10: Confront Your Mortality—the Sublime
Socrates once implied that wise men seek death all of their lives, and they don’t try to escape from its grasp! In truth there are only two options:
The first one allows you to get as far away as possible from every thought that signalizes death. This way you’ll cling to the illusion that you have all the time in the world to make things right.
Option #2 indicates that this inevitable truth actually works in your favor. How’s that? This way you’ll be able to put your focus on the most important things and live life fully, without regrets. Knowing that death lurks behind every corner, you’ll embrace a fearless attitude and an idea to dread nothing.
