How terrifying it is to love someone whom death can touch…
We see many people in our everyday life. Some may be strangers, some acquaintances, some friends, some family, and some who we love more than anything. It is these people who may not be on this earth 50 years from now, maybe 10, or even tomorrow. And we know that. Death is inevitable. It is an universal fact. Then why is it that the loss of someone affects us so deeply? This catastrophe renders us lifeless or numb at times
“All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players;They have their exits and their entrances,And one man in his time plays many parts,” is something Shakespeare has rightly said. We all have different roles to play in everyone’s life. Our absence means something to people. There may be no single thing that can teach us more about life than death. It activates destruction and creation.
If life is light, then death is darkness. If life is happiness, death is sorrow. If life is love, then death is.. even more. These two opposite forces yearn so much to be with each other that when one touches the other, it extinguishes their presence all together.
Heaven and Hell are two concepts quite widely attached to Death. Its fear or its want is what drives many people in daily life. It controls how they behave. Death isn’t about attaining the comforts of heaven, or running away from having to rot in hell. It is about finding peace and making peace with all those around you. When one is nearing old age, it is not that they should choose that time to start being caring and compassionate to people. Be this person throughout your life. It is not to have a beautiful afterlife, it is to have a beautiful life, and we only have certainty of this one, so why not be our best here?
Death of someone we know, helps us experience things we never thought possible before. It gives some people a chance to begin anew, or it gives someone a different perspective of life. It makes us realize the value of our life and that we only have one.So eat that candy, go on a world tour, talk to that one guy you see everyday on the train, buy those expensive shoes. Instead of making a list of ‘Things To Do Before I Die’ make a ‘Things To Do Because I Live’ It helps you appreciate what you have and what you have the courage to ask for.
Celebrate life before you have to meet your ultimate end. Because on your death bed there should just be one thought looming in your head, and that is ‘I made it…’
