"There’s a lot we can learn from the palliative care movement: it considers death as meaningful and dying as a stage of life to be valued, supported and lived. Welcoming mortality might actually help us live better lives and support communities — rather than relying on medical systems — to care for people at the end of their lives".
Death has as much value and meaning as birth. However, our society tends to only focus on birth and to deny or not talk about death.
What would happen to each our lives, and how would they be transformed if we brought death out of the shadows and into our everyday lives?
Would this death awareness help us to truly understand just how precious and unpredictable life is?
Would we realize that the "fluff" things we do in life, aren't filling us with joy and meaning?
Would we make more of an effort to spend more time with those we enjoy and love?
Would we treat others more respectively if we thought today could be our last day?
Think of all the different ways death awareness could enhance your live now.
