Death is a part of life that most people fear, nobody wants to think of themselves in a hole in the ground. Unfortunately, that is not the way it works, but hopefully, this will shed a bit of light on the situation.
”We live in a culture where it has been rubbed into us in every conceivable way that to die is a terrible thing. And that is a tremendous disease from which our culture in particular suffers.” – Alan Watts.
When we are children I think we all have this belief system that we will live forever, but who told you that we would live forever? The truth is, we all share a beautiful experience, and that is the time that we are given to live our lives.
“No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new.” – Steve Jobs
