On the Nature of Death


The Child Philosopher  CC


Death—so mysterious, so real, so true… As I live my life, it takes me near to this great truth, every day, every hour, and every moment. I am travelling in time and it’s a one way street. I am moving toward annihilation but it does not scare me a bit. I, as I understand myself was a child philosopher once who asked these small and big questions about life and death … yes I was terrified of death then …but it was a long time back. My mother, my first teacher, taught me the secrets of life and death and killed the primordial fear of death there and then. It’s no more alive now… death is dead. I have learned to look squarely in its eyes and say I “know” what you are and I accept you. Having said that life looks rich and meaning full and I have time for merriment, for self enjoyment, for my small and big struggles. Now I say yes to life just like you my friend. And what does death matters to us once we have lived our life. We would only desire for a graceful exit from this world and pray to God that He doth bless us with a quiet uneventful, silent, death. Our last and final prayer…

I can't honestly say I want to know how I'm going to die. But death is certainly an overwhelming fact of life and a fascinating subject to think about.

Hi nothingprofound,

I have to make changes in this article. So when you visit again you will find a better and more insightful article.

Warmly,

Yogendra
