"Visiting White Island was about the thrill of feeling a little more alive by feeling a little closer to death, all the while knowing that, really, you were in no more danger than you would be crossing a road."
"I think when you come that close to death things reveal themselves in a very different way, in a way that you’ve never experienced.
Hold on to your reason of why you want to be here. And know that actually everything matters. In your construction and architecture of your own life, make sure that you are putting the right pieces so that, if/when, it all comes crashing down, you can just take that moment with all the grace and all the peace.
My realisation is that there is nothing to be afraid of. Not even death itself. As long as you’re living not taking it as a given. Cause this is what you remember in a moment like this. That you have a life, that you needed to live that life. Remember that you have your own life, you’re blessed with this most amazing gift to be a human being. To be living in the time that we live in and to be able to create with the different tools that we have. And to have unparalleled access to knowledge that can allow you to be however you want to be. Don’t wait until you’re confront with death for you to remember that you have this life." -Ammar Kandil
