Reflecting upon our own death may enrich life and satisfy an inner longing for existential fulfillment – as may meditative processes.
Death has always been a demanding subject. But this fundamental aspect of our being does not need to remain an incomprehensible enemy. Though death is absolute, our relationship to death may change and mature.
To accept dying as part of our nature is to open up to an inner contemplative or spiritual room and may bring us closer to core aspects of our existence.
Normally, we describe ourselves and others in terms of political ideologies, religious beliefs, personal relations, profession and hobbies. But tell me what you think about death, and you have said something about who you are.
