Being the Soul: A Useful Lie

Desert Plant

I want you to lie to yourself today. Ironically, with this lie, I expect you’ll experience life lived True…

Imagine you just left your doctors office. While there, he told you that he found a tiny blood clot attached to the wall of an artery leading deep into your brain.

This blood clot, when it breaks loose, will immediately kill you.

There is no treatment for it. No surgery can remove it. You are doomed to live with this clot. Doomed to die at any moment.

Your doctor tells you that it could break loose and kill you any time within the next thirty seconds – or in the next thirty years – there is no way of telling. More likely, though, it will be the former.

Now lie to yourself – convince yourself this is real. Go about your day and imagine that you may die at any second.

It sounds morbid, but I assure you, if you try it, those moments living this lie will be some of the truest moments you’ve lived in a long time – maybe ever.

Special thanks to Quinzelle of S. Africa for being my experimental test dummy with this. If you try it, I’d love to hear your experiences with it in the comments below.

  1. Only a pleasure Wayne to have died like this brought change and through the metamorphosis came across this..


    God and I in space alone . . .
    and nobody else in view . . .
    “And where are all the people,
    Oh Lord” I said,
    “the earth below
    and the sky overhead
    and the dead that I once knew?”
    “That was a dream,” God smiled
    and said: “The dream that seemed to
    be true; there were no people
    living or dead; there was no earth,
    and no sky overhead,
    there was only myself in you.”
    “Why do I feel no fear?” I asked,
    “meeting you here in this way?
    For I have sinned, I know full well
    and is there heaven and is there hell,
    and is this Judgement Day?”
    “Nay, those were but dreams”
    the Great God said, “dreams that have ceased to
    There are no such things as fear and sin;
    there is no you . . . you never have been.
    There is nothing at all but me.””
    Ella Wheeler Wilcox

  2. Hey Wayne,

    Interestingly….. it was on September 12, 2001 that I had just that thought….

    “we are doomed to die at any minute”.

    TODAY…….. this moment is truly all we ever get.

    911 CHANGED everything for me.

    How many people woke up that morning thinking they
    had years of tomorrows ahead of them.

    The people who are directly in my life KNOW exactly how
    important they are to me. !!!

    I extend myself and reach out to folks like I might
    not have before…. because ALL we have is this moment. 🙂

    The following words I have no clue where they came from,
    but they have been with me for a LONG time. 🙂
    EVEN before 911, but they became BIG time huge after that.
    I have a plastic covered card of them beside my computer.

    I read them at least once a week…. maybe more.

    On This Day………..

    Mend a quarrel.
    Search out a forgotten friend.
    Dismiss suspicions, and replace them with trust.
    Write a love letter. Share some treasure.
    Give a soft answer. Encourage youth.
    Manifest your loyalty in a word or deed.
    Keep a promise. Find the time.
    Forego a grudge. Forgive an enemy.
    Listen. Apologize if you were wrong.
    Try to understand. Flout envy.
    Examine your demands on others.
    Think first of someone else.
    Appreciate, be kind, be gentle.
    Laugh a little more. Deserve confidence.
    Take up arms against malice. Decry complacency.
    Express your gratitude.
    Worship your God.
    Gladden the heart of a child.
    Take pleasure in the beauty and wonder of the earth.
    Speak your love.
    Speak it again.
    Speak it still again.
    Speak it still once again.

    THANKS Wayne for sharing your journey and
    asking those of us who are along to just L@@K a
    little closer.

  3. This reminded me of the book “The Man Who Walked Through Time,” by Colin Fletcher. It’s the true story of a man who walked the length of the Grand Canyon, below the rim, by himself. Highly recommended as a spiritual journey as well as an adventure and Thoreauesque kind of book.

    At one point he’s walking along realizing that he is surrounded by very precariously perched rocks which are likely to let go and create havoc in their path, likely smashing him into paste in the process. But he also realizes that all of this precariousness is measured in geologic time and therefore may occur in a moment or in ten thousand years, and really it is the same thing in geologic time.
