Life before death

The urge to create is in your DNA

Contemplating death

“At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death.”

All questions at the public meeting that day were about life beyond the grave. The Master only laughed and did not give a single answer. To his disciples, who demanded to know the reason for his evasiveness, he later said, “Have you observed that it is precisely those who do not know what to do with this life, who want another that will last forever?” “But is there life after death or is there not?” persisted the disciple. “Is there life before death? — That is the question!” said the Master enigmatically.

We don’t have a choice in this matter. Death is the ending we all know is inevitable.

A kid, a book, a tree

One of my favorite professors once told me a story about backpacking through Europe after college. He said his travels brought him in contact with an old man with a long white beard straight out of the Jungian archetypes of a wise old man. He looked exactly like Moses in The 10 Commandments, according to how my professor described him.
