Marijuana Straight Talk Ask Mari Juana 2 Comments

What’s scary?

Horror, slasher, alien-eating-you-from-the-inside-out movies?

Not a chance. 

How about the specter of a video game where you get blown up by terrorists?

Hmmm, not so much.

    Reflect on the next 10 years of your life— the people with whom you will interact, the places you will visit, the countless feelings you will experience, and so forth. Reflect upon how long these 10 years seem, how rich the many experiences you will have.

      And the next ten years will be even more precious if we accept and acknowledge the fact that we might live that much longer or die later today. If we accept this fact – and that it’s all fine – then we are on our way to becoming fearless, as there’s nothing worse to fear. Love, Mari
