It is important to recognize death, even if you don’t understand or accept it.  At some point the reality of limited time will catch up with all of us and make it impossible to dodge any longer the question of how you spend your remaining time.  Your purpose and priorities will come front and center, and how you allot your time should be consisted with your values and where you find meaning in life.

Death can be a teacher, and when you are faced with this lesson, you can appreciate that “It’s never too late to be what you might have been.”   George Elliot

Other lessons include:  “It is only when you are no longer afraid to die that you can say you are truly alive.”   Rabbi Kushner

“Only in the agony of parting do we look into the depths of love.”  George Elliot

“Death, and its ever-present possibility makes love, passionate love, more possible.  I wonder if we could love passionately, if ecstasy would be possible at all, if we knew we’d never die.”  Abraham Maslow.

Love doesn’t die, people do.

 

Some exercises include:  Write your own epitaph, and the three words you would want on your tombstone.

List three things you want to stop doing, and then three things you want to start doing.

 

“Doesn’t everything die at last, and too soon?  Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”    Mary Oliver

Like attracts like – thoughts become things – one power, one law.  It’s a creative process.

You don’t change the other person, you change yourself.  Where you have not forgiven – forgive.  Release the bad energy.  Forgive and release – let go of negativity.  Feelings attract.  Be aware of the power of positive thinking.

Most of us have been talked out of our purpose.  Decide on a purpose by being aware of what you love.  Mistakes and failure are only learning experiences.  We are responsible for our future.

Love who you are – love where you are – love the people who surround you.

All his life he has looked away – to the horizon, to the sky, to the future.  Never his mind on where he was, on what he was doing.         Yoda

For if there is a sin against life, it consists perhaps not so much in despairing of life as in hoping for another life and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life.         Camus

The problem is not the problem.  The problem is the incredible amount of over-thinking you’re doing with the problem.  Let it go and be free.           Buddha’s teaching

 

Perhaps the answer is as simple as “Love” – the gift of not demanding, but of Giving Love.
