Don’t die with your music still inside you

It can be a very scary step — starting to listen to those whispering voices about being more of who we really are. But doing so isn’t half as scary as getting to face our end with the question , “what if my whole life has been wrong.”

These were the the dying words of Leo Tolstoy’s character Ivan Illyich in The Death of Ivan Ilyich. In his self-reflective film, The Shift, Wayne Dyer speaks about how Tolstoy’s story inspired him to write himself a note, “Don’t die with your music still inside you.”
