Unless you embrace death, you cannot live, if you try to avoid death, all that will happen to you is that you will end up avoiding life.

It is only when you become aware of death that you want to know what life is about. Once you come to terms with death and you are conscious that you will die, you will want to make every moment of your life as beautiful as possible.Expand ⇕
Life & death can be handled gracefully. If you remind yourself all the time that, "I am mortal, I'm mortal, I'm mortal, I'm mortal", you will see, mind will uncomplicate itselfExpand ⇕
Death is not a negative thing, death is the only thing that has added value to your life. If you were here forever, you would be unbearableExpand ⇕
Only when you remind yourself of your death, you will turn spiritual. If you think of God, fantasies will come in your mind. No spirituality will comeExpand ⇕
Every day, every moment if you remind yourself this is a brief life, "I'm mortal, one day I will end." just do this for 2 days & see, you will become something truly fantastic within yourselfExpand ⇕
