Death. The one word all of us know and accept. In The Teachings of Don Juan he reminds us that Death is forever by our side, stalking and waiting until the time he strikes us down. He also reminds us to have the utmost awe, respect, and reverent fear for Death as he is our constant companion. In the book ILLUSIONS by Richard Bach a character named Donald Shimoda tells Richard this: "Remember where you came from, where you are going, and why you created the mess you got yourself into in the first place. You're going to die a horrible death, remember. It's all good training, and you will enjoy it more if you keep the facts in mind. Take your dying with some seriousness, however. Laughing on the way to your execution is not generally understood by lesser advanced life-forms, and they'll call you crazy."
Personally I find the thought of so called death so very intriguing. There are just so many different beliefs about death. I can only say I don't have any preconceived notions about what happens at that moment. Of course there are many who claim to know exactly what happens but I don't get that at all. Human beings are equipped with a finite brain and then we still try to explain the infinite. Just can't be done I don't think. The only thing I do know for sure is that death will get each and every one of us one day. So with that in mind I am going to try my best to make today one filled with love, peace, and happiness. And my hope is that you will do the same. Be good to yourself and even better to everyone you meet this day. Live now, because death awaits us all. I leave all of you with thoughts of love and kindness. Enjoy the moment!
