My Ponderings from Griefwalker:

 “The cradle of your love of life is the fact that it ends.”

Does death at your door turn your life around?

Accept is too neutral, you have to love it.  That’s really active.  You have to say yes to that. (talking about death)

If you have to get the news of your death from somebody else, how firmly in your life are you?

 Grief is a skill, and the twin of grief as a skill of life is the skill of being able to praise or to love life.

Were you able to spend 5 minutes watching the trailer of the movie?  Much of what left me speechless and thinking about death and life was included in it ~ although the movie brings you even more ponderings as I’ve named them above.  What did you think about the trailer and movie?

Often death is a difficult subject.  Difficult to bring up to loved ones and difficult to accept (and to love).  Have you thought about your own mortality and your own death?   Have you had any brushes with death ~ have you been given a 2nd chance at life?  Do you live differently now because of it?

I do not fear death.  I am much like the woman in the movie who feels she la la’s her way through to the end of her life.  She doesn’t want to know how long she has left because of her terminal cancer diagnosis.

What do you think?  How do you feel?

Shine On!
