People are generally afraid of death. But there are many persons who are not afraid of death, which however does not mean that death is powerless before them. This topic has been discussed in Times of India dt. Jun 24, 2011. We know that all living beings on this earth have to die at some point of time. We see some other person(s) dying. Death does haunt us. But we have to live life in spite of it, with freedom and happiness, without negative thoughts and with full knowledge of life and also death. Death has to be experienced to explain it, but without being alive we can’t express it.By being near to a person who is dying, we will experience the trauma and have the depth of knowledge of death. By understanding death and having readiness to live with it, we can feel life to its full extent. If we cannot feel depth of ourselves, we will be floating in life, unable to reach the shore. We will have to cross over all negative points like greed, fear, ignorance etc. to reach ourselves. We can get true answers in silence, which we can get when all answers lose their depth. The secrets reveal themselves to us, once we are ready to know. Only we can challenge ourselves.
