Death & Life

To understand life, you need to question death. This book is also packed with philosophy on the darkness that awaits us all and is composed in free form poetry with an essence of wisdom. Enjoy the beautiful visuals that will take you on a journey beyond the shadows. Death, a word or thought that not many of us think about; the fact death exists and is the pinnacle point of life, means it needs to be questioned. When the human mind reaches of age, it questions the unforeseen. This is a normal process of thought for almost everyone. Questions creep into your consciousness, and you feel an urge to find an answer, mainly because you know the end is near. Here are a few questions you might ask yourself: What happens when I die? Will my family be ok when I die? I wonder how I will die? Will death be painful or peaceful? Would I do it all again differently? There are many ways to answer some of the above questions. You may have found your answers in religion, spirituality, science, family and friends or some alternative way of thinking. Finding peace with your inner being is the key only you hold. Accepting death helps you live out life the way you want to live it. You must reason with death, understand death and meet death as a welcoming gesture of life’s end. Who wants to live forever? Even if you could live forever, the day will come when you will welcome death as your friend, as a moment that needs to happen, or as a necessity for your energy to move into or onto something else.
