What we believe about death shapes how we live our life. Whether we believe that when it’s over it’s over, that we will reunite with our loved ones for eternity or be reincarnated heavily influences our conduct and decisions every day.
But does what we think about life have this same impact on our behavior? Do we even have beliefs about life like we do about death? At fifty-two all I know for sure is that life goes on. And isn’t that ironic to this conversation?
Big questions for a Monday, I know. But I had a dream this morning about an old friend
who passed away several years ago and I woke up wondering where he is now. We never discussed death nor does it come up much if at all with any of the people in my life. But we do talk life . . . to death.
