Troy - David Benioff

This quote was added by amdarkholme
I'll tell you a secret. Something they don't teach you in your temple. The gods envy us. They envy us because we're mortal, because any moment might be our last. Everything is more beautiful because we're doomed. You will never be lovelier than you are now. We will never be here again.

Right! in the sense what when we make the most of any one moement, we feel in repsonse an amazingly deep sense of "being there" in a most, exquisitly pleasurable way. ... Yet DEATH is not a factor is this at all. In fact, we, our soul, the connection is made most stringly to the eternal, to G0d. Been there, done that, it ain't "doom" which makes beauty. It is in fact the opposite, for we make a stronger connection to the Eternal, when we make the "most" of a moment. And, indeed, if the Temple in Jerusalem was operational again, with its flying squads of Levites and Cohens, smoke rising, incense plumes rising, spirits rising, we would all of us feel more "alive" as opposed to dead. "Here again". Wow. That's meaningful too. Every good act brings us more "here again". Ash is useful but let's not be ash. Just use it while we have it to use. Makes soap, cleanses.
