We plan our lives around big events, birthdays, marriages, moves to new places. So why do we ignore the biggest event of all? Death. Shouldn’t that, more than anything else, affect the way we live?
And if there’s even the slightest possibility of an afterlife, could anything else be as important? Would you plan your move to a far away land–with a culture and language totally unknown to you–by focusing on what to have for lunch before you go?
Has anyone ever truly lived who was not prepared to die?
“How strange this fear of death is. We are never frightened at a sunset.” ~George MacDonald
