Before you start reading this blog I need you to turn off any music or external noise that may distract you so that you can follow the exercise that we are about to do, if you have any food, anything that may distract you, please put it aside for a moment. Get yourself comfortable, relax and take a deep breath, now we start.
Try to imagine for a moment any scene, any desire that you may have or any thought that may emerge in this moment, and as you have that picture in your mind ask yourself the following: "Is this really happening right now? Where am I really? What is really going on in my world and where am I within it honestly?"
Focus only on what is around you like the temperature of the environment, the weight of your body in the chair that is below you, feel your feet and move them a little bit, breathe and feel how the air is going down your throat and feeling your lungs, feel the palpitations of your heart (if this is too difficult to reach, put two fingers in your wrist as if you were taking your own pressure and from there try to track it back throughout your body to your heart until you are feeling all the veins pumping the blood throughout your body), hear the sounds around you, any sound around you without judging it, without thinking about it and if any thought, any feeling, any emotion comes up, just put it apart and repeat to yourself the question: "what is really happening right now? the thoughts and pictures in my head? or this that is surrounding me?"
Now, going back to the premise that we made in the previous post... "if a demon comes and tell me that I am about to die and that after my dead I am not going to remember my name, my relatives, my loved ones, neither I am going to be able to feel or experience anything as I no longer have a body to create such feelings or emotions because this were created by the "fabric", the body, the brain and now I have no body, neither I have a brain or a memory about who I was when I was alive, but if I am able to tell to this demon what remains of me after my dead, he/she will give me another chance to live, what would you answer?"
