“Death is a stripping away of all that is not you.
The secret of life is to die before you die – and find that there is no death.”
~ Eckhart Tolle
WINTER SOLSTICE REFLECTIONS …
As the daylight reduces I find myself getting more reflective. I have thought on death and dying off and on for sometime, as I want to diminish my fear of the inevitable next stage of Life.
I had a shockingly delightful breakthrough insight the other day. It pierced the fear and often invisible cultural discourse we live inside of:
“What if the experience of death was a relief, but not only a relief but Beautiful? Joyful?!?!"
That moment was freeing … as I now have access to the possibility of a joyful passing, a dropping of the body that could be, not a loss, but an extraordinary expansion.
