Death

DEATH is coming for us all.  It may come by accident, war, a pandemic or the time simply runs out.  It is a clear ingredient of life but it’s not all doom and gloom.

We go through the first part of life mostly as passengers.  As kids we do what parents, family, teachers, peers and as society in general tells us to.  From the back seat we are no more different then animals who avoid pain or seek pleasure.

How much free will do we have from this place?

With the knowledge and lessons as passengers, plus the universal boundary of death we have an opportunity to shift to the driver seat.  This can come early to some, in later years for most or not at all.

Top 5 regrets of the dying (google the article)

1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.

2. I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.

3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.

4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.

5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.

With the new power as the driver we can continue the path we were on, speed up or even pull over and assess.

Yes it can be an ending or tragic but DEATH presented here is a starting point.

 

More to come…..
