Death teaches

An end is inescapable, invincible and eternal. It means the end of a physical presence and the journey of discovery thru memories and emotions. Death leaves the rest to draw their own takes about life.

Who knows when death will arrive? It may meet you while you drive your bike, it may take a father just before he sees his unborn son or a mother just before she sees her daughter getting married.
A sudden culmination of life: Death is ironic.

The grieving must learn to be braver, patient and more accepting of life. If life deserves its worth, death should be accepted more sooner than later.
Death means strength.

After death, your life’s worth is summarized all at once. People remember you, people take inspiration from you and people shed tears for you. Death brings to surface the entire portfolio of life.
Death sums everything up.

Death teaches the true importance of time. It signifies the end of the confluence of time, mass and energy of one identity. This vacuum created by death makes you appreciate your moments as an able individual. It compels you to race against time to achieve your goals.
Death hastens your achievements.

Death shakes you off your existence. It takes you on a strange spiritual journey. It is a blatant reminder of the impermanence of life. How often do we take each day for granted? How often we assume our existence and associated relationships as eternal? Death reveals the fickleness of life.
Death teaches.

This one reminds me of something a friend of mine told me...
everything we do is guided by fear..or more importantly fear of death. Theres no valor in most of what we do. I guess its too simplified a statement. But its kinda true. But since death is SO inevitable..everyone wants to escape it for as long as possible...
i mean..i got dumb females trying to look 14 when they're 40 or something, living around my place...
nice post anyways...
cheers!

Hey, very nicely written. A very different way of seeing death altogether. Only painful thing about death is that it affects lot of people who are very close to the deceased.

yes, death teaches. unfortunately it doesnt teach the one it deals with.

zindagi toh bewafa hai,ek din thukraaegi

maut mehbooba hai, apne saath lekar jayegi

keep writing

amazingly deep insightful post!!!...the first thing that occurred to me after reading this were the last lines from Peter Pan play which paraphrased say, "To die will be an awfully big adventure".

The Mad Girl said...

yes death teaches.I have a tendency of Romanticising death and seeing it as an inevitable but beautiful culmination to the sad song that is life.
thanks for commenting on my blog.

Thanks.

Those are some really great lines.

And IMO death is more pleasing, than anything. It's a release for everything else. But that does'nt mean we should wait for death.

:P
