A known but not always accepted
fact: we die. There is no maybe,
only when. Most never know the time,
some get a diagnostic warning. Rare
is the person who does not experience
panic at knowing of his impending
death. Yet, dying is a natural as
the sun setting, even if hastened
by illness or injury.
Fear of dying takes many forms and
exists even when death is not
obviously eminent. Yet die we must.
And an inability to accept the certainty
of death colors our whole way of living.
The paradox is that in order to live
fully, one must come to terms with dying.
What would you do differently if you were
told you have three months to live?
