"Momento Mori is a Latin phrase meaning "remember you must die and death is inevitable".
This term arose from the minds of the great thinkers. The ancient practice of reflecting on our mortality goes back to Socrates. Obviously these scholars understood how reflecting on death can invigorate life, create meaning and recalibrate life's priorities by always being reminded to keep the temporary nature of existence in their minds, so they may appreciate life more.
Therefore, death is the secret paradox of life as End-of-life contemplation can potentially wake us up to profoundly breath more meaning into our lives.
"We all want to live and not think of death, but when you think of death, you end up (trying to) living better"!
Death awareness and death education can create a deep desire to understand human life and the impermanence of it.
