Death’s Presence

“From the moment you were born, your death has walked beside you… though it seldom shows its face.” John O’Donohue

Most of the time we find it easy to deny death’s silent presence. But when real tragedy arrives, or injury happens, the world is turned upside down. Then, if your heart is true, courage is revealed in vulnerability. Then, you can face the shadows. Finally, you see. Your quiet companion, death, is really… light. Now, you have no need to fear.

It is death itself that calls your life to attention, that awakens you from your small, hidden self. Now, you can live big. Now, you are free to choose… to shape your destiny by the other, patient companions within you: forgiveness, compassion and love.
