On death and dying

Death comes to us all and as people we have a responsibility to live mindfully so that death isn’t a dishonest fear based departure, but rather an honest freezing transition to something restful and then to a better life.

Our lives and all we do everyday is leading us to something, within community and as individuals. It is important how we spend time, what things we generate and what we do with our thoughts and how this builds or harmonizes communities is important. It isn’t a boring life, it is a life of balance with joyful diligence and practices and leadership based in wisdom and compassion, people who are working out more difficult problems are supported by the great web of individuals who are together with intention generating better future.

Death is something that can be studied and it is important for people to learn how to die with dignity and have attention on death throughout life. Impermanence pervades life and reminds us of unknown and inescapable nature of death. Dying isn’t bad it is how we die and how we live and how we prepare for dying and living. That matters.

For my Loten in love life and death and our common Buddhist values.
