I feared death for many years; but, only because it never occurred to me that I would die. How many of us cruise through our lives, occupied with the mundane details; but, not being mindful of them in the present? It just isn't rational to fear something that is inevitable anyway. The only rational response to the coming end of life is to figure out how best to spend the life moments available to us in the present. So, this Friday, I am doing the same things I probably would be doing on any given Friday; but, I am savoring them moment by moment, and expecting those moments to end at any time. It just makes sense.
“It is not death that a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live.”
― Marcus Aurelius,
