Death – Thought of the Day.

“Death is a stripping away of all that is not you. The secret of life is to “die before you die” — and find that there is no death.”
― Eckhart Tolle

We get attached to the world we live in, the life we create for ourselves and the people that are important to us.  This is what makes death such a difficult concept.  Letting go without knowing what’s waiting for us is stressful.  Most of us just ignore the subject of death, even though we all go to funerals and we all end up there.

What does not add up for me, in death, is that we’re fine dying when we’re old and broken down; but not fine with it when it’s childhood cancer.  How is a child dying make any of us feel better about death.  It’s something I struggle with.  I don’t think I’ll live to be ninety, but the concept of my premature death is not an idea that I can entertain.

Is our life like a trip to the store.  When you get home, it’s in the past.  The only trace of evidence that it happened is my memory.  If you wipe that away, did it happen?
