10: A Good Day to Die


In this episode, we stumble into a conversation about death and dying.

Can we perceive life as a series of re-births and deaths? How should we live our lives? What’s the benefit of living according to the Samurai Code “live as if you’re already dead?”Why could it be valuable to start each day with the mindset “Today is a good day to die.”
We discuss a valuable meaning for death and several different ways to use the perception of death as a way of consciously living. We uncover a massive assumption when you delay doing something that may be just the motivation you’ve been waiting for, and Clay shares why he’s “mainly” an existentialist. 
“The greatest wealth is contentment, the greatest happiness is freedom from opinion and the greatest peace is from the abandonment of desires.”
