Appreciating Our Mortality
As I was reading the book, The Untethered Soul, by Michael Singer, it hit me that many of us don’t fear death — instead, we fear life. We hardly ever seriously think about death as it pertains to us and our mortality. It is always happening to someone else. On the other hand, we do fear life – afraid to truly be ourselves and live life without the boundaries and expectations that society and the world push at us. In the book, Michael Singer points out if we could make death our friend, life would become much more precious. I have posted notes around my office to remind me that life does not last forever so I need to make the best possible use of it – discover what counts most and focus on achieving a meaningful existence.
