Death, dying and grief can be very uncomfortable subjects to speak about.
If we chose to not have these conversations, we deny ourselves the ability to explore a major part of life, which is called death .
Ask yourself -
Is death avoidable?
By denying death, are you emotionally prepared for death?
If you avoid talking about death, will this help or hurt you emotionally when you meet death?
If you chose not to explore death, how will this affect how you when someone close to you dies?
Death awareness is not a morbid subject to me. It is the exact opposite. It is about living life now.
Death awareness is a journey for me. When I am death aware, I am life aware.
This, to me, is what "Life exploring Death" is all about.
Learning to acknowledge, and appreciate ,that life and death are just opposite sides of the same coin.

**The attached article shares that the Dalai Lama believes that if you are not "aware of death, you will fail to take advantage of this special human life you have already attained".
