Americans seem to have a seriously deep aversion to death.
Death is a word. To what experience does death refer?
I think death refers to the experience, not of the one who dies, but of the witnesses, those who experience loss.
Death is not regrettable, any more than an exhale is regrettable.
What if we re-named the experience we call death, re-birth?
Who knows that death is not re-birth?
How can it be otherwise?
To accept death, give up attachment to life, and become ready to be re-born.
I live life not in fear of dying. I hope I will not exhaust life’s resources in order to resist death, only to die anyway.
Today is a good day to die. Therefore, it is a good day to live.
Breathe out. Breathe in. This is the miracle.
Breathe out. Do not breathe in. Then?
