On Death

Today Sumiko Tan (14.4.13), the editor of  Sunday Life...in the Sunday life page wrote  about death and a little of the afterlife after attending a colleague wake...Her colleague died at 50...a relatively young age...

If I am not wrong..she is reaching 50, (I am following occasionally her writings) and god! is she afraid? Oh! everyone of us is afraid of death, not only her only..No one has experienced what death is...And death can never be experienced..Is there a near death experience ?

Is death that fearful?...Yes my friends, death is fearful and hard to accept, if one is never prepared. But who would prepare and think of dying when alive?..Not many..

At this juncture of her existence Miss Sumiko is thinking of what death is, And why not fix the age of death to everyone at 75..

Sumiko Tan's article search the mind's of people and at the same time pricks the conscience of truth..

It is not in dying that we worried...it is how we live...In our old age if we live a long life of refinement, it would be a blessing..Aging is a perennial process of re-creation of life.

We live to die peacefully...But the journey in life are full of dangers of how death can come about...sudden death in the form of accidents...in sickness, all are premature death.

Death is a taboo subject to discuss. But death is inevitable in the journey to life..

A good death is all many would wish for...And that really depends on each individual....Death is that fearful and the one wish many would wish not to come truth.

Another human fear of unknown is eternity. It is as 'fearful' as death or is it a Shangri-la ?
