Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet, death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it, and that is how it should be, because death is very likely the single best invention of life. It’s life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new.

Death, as sad as it may be, is perhaps the most beautiful thing ever created by God. Death is just another journey, without death, there will never be birth and life. Losing someone is inevitable. This is beautifully illustrated by Bill Watterson, the creator of Calvin and Hobbes – Death is temporary and the meaning of life and death.
