Nobody is watching us, judging from afar. Life is not a test of mettle, or scruples. Adherence to dogma is a feather in your cap, nothing more. And the world will continue on, unfiltered through your eyes, but through the eyes of others. Pain will be endured, but not by you. Love will triumph, or falter, in your absence.
You get the idea.
Being alive is literally everything to you, but of absolutely no consequence to the universe. The thought is liberating to me.
