Although we do not like to think about it, death is our constant companion.
Most people fear death, for it is the great unknown.
That is because we don’t understand how to use it properly in our lives.
Death is a part of our lives, and we can use it to help be more present on a daily basis.
Death helps to give us perspective and to see what is truly important to us.
Death helps us to let go of the inconsequential and sharpen our focus.
Death is the reminder that all things are impermanent.
The conversation around death in our culture is one that only sees it as a loss in life.
It is so much more.
The most important aspect of death is our own death.
From seeing our own death more clearly we empower ourselves to be more decisive.
Death is not a trap or a fiend. Death is a tool.
Not one to use against another person. It is a tool to use against our own bad habits.
Death is the purest characteristic of life as it treats everyone the same.
Death comes to everyone – the old, the young, the sick and the healthy.
When we keep death as our constant companion we are free of the attachments that limit us.
Death is the ultimate transformation, yet we do not have to wait until we meet it to transform.
Death can transform our lives for the better if we allow it to.
