Death is an inevitable journey

That we all must take.

At first we watch others we know go on ahead of us,

Until, quite unexpectedly, it is our turn to go.

On an unknown day or night we will be summoned

To journey forward into yet another life.


Death is not an ending — so don’t be afraid of it!

It is only a punctuation mark in the endless

Saga of our lives.

Cast your mind backward and recall

The tens of thousands of your past lives.

Cast your mind forward and feel your future lives,

The tens of thousands that are yet to be.

Now concentrate upon this moment,

In this lifetime, and see how fully you can live it!


You’ve died many times before and,

To be honest with you,

You don’t look any the worse for it —

So why fear death anyway?
