The Hardest Lesson? With or Without You The Earth Still Turns

by xTheEcstasyOfSuicidex   Dec 15, 2009


Close your eyes.

Don't move.

Don't breathe.

Cease to exist for a moment; create the impossible for one single moment.

And the sad thing is you were just taught one of life's most valuable lessons in the blink of an eye . . . and never felt a thing.

Now move,

Continue to exist and realize that the moment you ceased to exist, the earth kept spinning beneathe your feet. It doesn't need you to live like you need it. The hardest lesson? With or without you the earth still turns.

    Close your eyes.

    Don't move.

    Don't breathe.

    A deep concentration is required upon doing these steps to cease to exist for a moment.

    Great job. Keep up

    REally enjoyed the write and the meaning here impacted.
    I wish you had continued to used the "bullet" type statements throughout as they add emphasis and could get longer as they built to the conclusion.
