Death knocking on your door is the ultimate stimulant to make you aware of your true desires, dreams and aspirations which reside deep under the pile of illusions and delusions embedded into your thought and personality.
Freud used to say that there is only one thing for sure in life: death.
There is no way around it.
However, in today’s fast paced life-style that we all experience and take part into, we seem to have forgotten not only true values but we also forgot about DEATH.
Sounds pessimistic? Nothing could be any further from the truth.
It is actually an optimistic view of everything around you if you actually remind yourself of DEATH.
Why is that?
Because once you become aware of the fact that one day you will surely die, you will all of a sudden awaken and realize you have no time to waste before it’s too late.
But what if you died tomorrow? How would you prioritise today?
This same question of what if you died tomorrow is being asked by people who go in for complicated surgeries, who have had a tragic accident or who go to war.
They swear that they will never take life for granted ever again and promise that if they will make it back safe, the first thing they will do is work on life’s priorities.
Given this information that you just read, you are lucky because you do not need to suffer a life threating act in order to realise you should put order into your life.
1. What is death anyway?
Buddha used to call Death his greatest teacher of them all.
The concept of Death is a great opportunity for you to grow as an individual.
Imagine life without Death. What would you accomplish? How would you go through your never ending life?
