As one experiences the phenomena of complete metamorphosis of first a caterpillar....then a larvae pupae within a coocon...which then becomes a beautiful butterfly! We continually come to a deeper understanding, and realization of the wondrous world we live in, thus experience the knowledge of death within the depth of the heart of life !
In my eyes...death is a birth unto change....an awakening.... a great departure into the arms of Life...for... are we not deathless souls.... with an everlasting essence of Love, which supplies us with an everlasting Life? Are we not like rain...which... when the heat of the sun touches the tiny rain drop...its clear form evaporates and becomes another element...Air?
And is death not like unto the seasons? Continually changing...when Spring is born...valleys...and meadows are covered in bloom, little buds recusitate from within the ground... from little seeds which kept their life and bring forth a new moment in time!
All of nature arrays herself in her blooming....exquisite demonstration of renewal....where after a long sleep...she wakens to embrace us with her beauty!!
Then Spring is no longer ...for her flowers became fruits... all is well nurtured and groomed, Spring sleeps and Summer enters a new portal ...where its radiant exuberance comes from sun rays...the long summer days are now here to stay a little while.....
Is not Autumn's fall...another form of death? When the leaves fall off the trees...and nakedness is seen throughout the land? Where the winds are no longer warm...yet nature paints her most majestic masterpiece, right before she dies !! Thus .....is Winter born...and all is quiet...only the sounds of silence prevail....and her mantle of white adorn?
So begins another cycle....we humans live in this beautiful world...a world of magnificent beauty, a world of magnificent forms. Many fear death, dying,pain...I ask why?
For we merely awake again...and death is LIFE with its many transforming forms...
Fear not death....nor dread it...for there is no fear in death...but the fear itself!
Instead...embrace life at its fullest...live with joy every moment...seize them with gusto as if they were fleeing!
Nature never forgets.... she never dies...after fire in her forests..beneath the ground new seeds grow...she reminds us daily of our true essence...have we forgotten?
Does the sun not die a beautiful death at sunset.... birthing the night into dreams and quiet slumber ,only to be reawakened into a glorious majestic morning..... illuminating the world with his warm rays...is this not a new birth?
Scientists have discovered that our cells rejuvenate within so many months, old ones die..yet we create new ones...so why are people saying:'' Oh they are 80...or well they are 70, and have this disease...and they no longer remember...or they will last until....they have only so many years left...
Why do we accept this reality? When there is another...nature gives us daily lessons....
Can we not accept our Divinity, and can we not heal ourselves from our ego/mind and accept , health, beauty, re- birth....Life!
Love death in all its forms...for its voice is deep and full of resonance... within her lies the wisdom of LIFE.
Remember....''Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists. Herein lies the peace of God". - An excerpt from A Course on Miracles.
Only Love is real....for Love is the ultimate truth!!
Ponder on this..........
