“Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.” ~ Norman Cousins; American political journalist, author, professor, and world peace advocate.
“For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one.” ~ Khalil Gibran; Lebanese writer, poet, and visual artist.
Time, as a necessary gift our minds create, has been given to us since the first speck of matter was formed, because time is what matter needs to exist; thus, in order for a process of any design, chemical or otherwise, to be given physical trajectory then time is vital, as well as space where events or processes can take place.
This life then should be seen as time to experience and move forward, to develop yourself and your path in pure happiness, not to dwell in misery and suffering; time allows for all these, happiness and misery, and, even though we must embrace both, as both are part of life, there is no wisdom in dwelling in misery or pain more than is needed to learn and move on.
Because when you embrace the time you have and see it as a blessing, then you make everything about love and happiness, you don’t waste time being miserable, and you even make death into a door to a greater state or a graduation ceremony.
Death is only seen as the end or as very painful to your own experience if you live your life in attachment, if you only know and enjoy the pleasures of life, and if you crave relationships and material things as possessions/as source of considered happiness; for if you really understand and experience the essence of true happiness and love within yourself, beyond the superficial nonsense of man, then attachment and fear vanishes from your life and you see death as another stepping stone to something greater where you are absolutely free.
