Recently I’ve encountered this weird phenomenon in my life. At night as I’m drifting to sleep I might make it for 30-45 minutes at which point I wake up abruptly.
I don’t have any sort of memory of any specific dreams or anything. I simply have the thought in my head that I’m going to die one day. I wake up not upset, nor happy, but adrenaline is definitely rushing. Sleep is difficult after this, I’m ready to get up and start doing something.
I’m not sure why this has been happening but it sure serves as a good reminder: we’re going to die, better make the most out of it.
