Death
 
The loss of a loved one is perhaps the most difficult experience that one will
 
encounter during the course of life. The feelings and emotions that surround
 
this type of experience can simply feel unbearable.
 
 
Each of us travels a path to an inevitable conclusion.
 
Life’s journey will, someday, carry all of us
 
to the distant shores of the great beyond.

Live while you are alive!
 
The future is now!

"Death is not extinguishing the light;

it is putting out the lamp

because the dawn has come."

Death is passing through the door

to another phase of life.

We make the transition and go to a place

that is familiar.

 

In death we know that we are truly home.

 

Death is inevitable.

  'Death' is a natural cycle of life,

 

the transformation of consciousness and states of energy

and information from which we move into higher

and more refined vibratory frequencies.

If there exists one experience that, throughout history and

around the world, binds mankind together, it is death.

 

Death is something we all must face.

No meditation techniques,

no amount of money can avoid it.

Death does not discriminate. Regardless of race, creed,
 
color, ethnicity, income level, or age death is a fact of life.
 
The tragic and unpredictable days of death, sorrow, and
 
grief are inevitable life events all cultures share and share
 
alike. It is a tragic event that can affect the way a family
 
functions in any culture.

 

Death is the great equalizer.

 

 

  Of all life experiences, death and bereavement are

considered to be the most traumatic.
 
 
Whenever or however death occurs, every loss brings its
 
share of pain, disruption, changes and challenges.
 

It's the heart afraid of dying, that never learns to dance;


It's the dream afraid of waking,

that never takes the chance;


It's the one who won't be taken, who cannot seem to give;


And the soul afraid of dying, that never learns to live.

~ Bette Midler

Death is the termination of the biological functions

that define a living organism.

Death is the end of the vital processes

by which an organism sustains itself.   

Death for you and me is constituted by the irreversible

discontinuation of the vital processes by which we are sustained.

Life is full of paradoxes and death is literally the ultimate journey.*

Death is life's ending.

It is one of the few things in life we can count on.

 

It is an integral part of our life that gives meaning to human existence.

 

 

Throughout our life we will experience

the loss of family members and friends.

The closer one is to us the greater the

impact.

Dying, death, and grief are human processes,
 
and each person can be 100% sure that each and every one of us will, sooner or later,
 
die and /or experience the loss of family  members and friends.

Death is certain.

We can be assured

we will all die.

 

 Death is a subject that is denied, evaded and ignored

like the plague.

Death is an inevitable truth of life that

cannot be avoided or conquered.

It is our final stage of growth.

Letting go can be difficult,

but then we must understand...

all our children, our family, our relationships,

the people we value and hold dear

are all just a loan of love.

They are ours for now,

ours for a while,

but ultimately

they are God’s forever.

They do it one day at a time,
 
one week at a time,
 
one month at a time.
 
It happens so gradually they are unaware of how their lives
 
are slipping away until it's too late.

Mary Kay Ash
 
 
 

 

 

Life is slipping away...

second by second.

 

 
 
All of us have been dying, hour by hour,
 
since the moment we were born.
 
Realizing this, let all things be placed
 
in their proper perspective. . . .
 
Remember, it is always later than you think.

"The Greatest Success in the World"
 


It is easy to think of others having to keep their appointment with death,

but difficult for us to remember that we, too, must keep our appointment.

Death is an appointment that none of us can ignore,

and the question of its manifestation is merely a matter of time.

We spend too much time living in the ‘What if’
 
and need to learn to live in the ‘What is.’

Rev. Leroy Allison

 
We don't need to wait until death is at our doorstep before we start to really live.
 

 
May we begin to see death as an invisible companion
 
on our life's journey.

 Whether we die at a young age or when we are older is less important than
 
whether we have fully lived the years we have had. 
 
Let us not wait until tomorrow to do what we mean to do now.

May we learn to live our life
 
and our purpose...
 
rather than simply pass
 
through it.
 
 
 
 May we live each day as if it were our last.
 
May we find
 
a sense of peace
 
and strength to deal with
 
life's disappointments
 
and pain while always
 
striving to discover
 
and better understand
 
the true meaning
 
of life and death.
 
 
May we use our gift of life
 
as happily and productively as possible.

 
 May we give back to the Lord all He has given us;
 
dedicating all the members of our family,
 
all the people we love and care about, to God, for His purposes,
 
for His plans, and for His use.
 
May we let go of these gifts,
 
and focus on God,
 
the Giver.

We are all being given an unparalleled opportunity to
 
discover life's true meaning through coming to terms with
 
death's place in the spectrum of human development, and
 
thus to learn to use our gift of life as happily and
 
productively as possible.
 

 In a world without God, death is the ultimate leveler,

breaking down every difference in humanity until we are

all the same - dust. But the resurrection of Christ

(1Corithians 15:12-20) and the promised resurrection of

all humanity (Daniel 12:2, John 5:28, Acts 24:15) show us

that death does not have the final word -

God does.

May we grow through the experience.
 
 
 

Father God,

Teach us to love our loved ones with a Holy detachment,

so that when the time comes, they will be free to follow Your will,

and  fulfill Your purposes for Your glory.

Amen.
