'People v The State of Illusion'

It's often said that people are afraid of dying. 
I think they're more afraid of living.
~ Dr. Thomas Moore

fear in every part of livin'
until the last breath
when death takes it down
back from where it come
o Lord take my soul
and let it fly with thee
free of every burden
let it be

Thank you Maureen. It feels to me a little like the movie The Secret, which Joe Dispenza was in as well. Regardless, the message is good. For a long time I've felt that stress is one of the worst contributors to disease. I am glad to see that there is a movie which asks us to challenge status quo and hopefully many will internalize the message and take the plunge to change our perception.

wondering if nance's poem is one of her making or part of a hymn ...

Dr. Moore's quote is worth pondering.
