I seldom dream or think of the future but you know that when I do, I see us dancing by a lullaby-like melody. We are older than we are today. It is as though we are alone in the crowd. You look into my eyes and it is the first time we fell in love with each other.
We, people living, shouldn’t be concerned about death or the afterlife.
You can not prevent death to happen. You can not expect death; it just happens.
Death, sickness, aging deal with us; not us with them. Either we face it or forget it – be involved with things or be preoccupied.
Death is now… very possible anytime. Death is not fearful – only fearful because you do not want to let go of things.
The things you fear are determinate but death is not.
Authentic existence – being is not equal to having. Expression of being – love, commitment can not be overcome by death.
Death is not the opposite of life but a compliment of it. You will value life more if you understand death.
Courage – living in spite of death.
