From Death To Immortality

"From the unreal lead me to real.
From darkness lead me to light.
From death lead me to immortality."
~Anonymous

"Each moment ends the instant it begins, if you don't see this, you will not see what is exquisite in it, and you will call the moment ordinary.
Each interaction "begins to end' the instant it 'begins to begin." Only when this is truly contemplated and deeply understood does the full treasure of every moment-and of life itself-open to you."
~Conversations with God

"Your time with each person would be glorified if you thought it was your last time with that person. Your experience of each moment would be enhanced beyond measure if you thought it was the last such moment. Your refusal to contemplate your own death leads to your refusal to contemplate your own life."
~Conversations with God

"Death should teach you that what is real is life, And life teaches you that what is unavoidable is not death, but impermanence."
~Conversations with God

May there be a beautiful welcome for you in the home that you are going to.
You are not going somewhere strange. You are going back to the home that you never left.
May you have a wonderful urgency to live your life to the full.

May your soul smile in the embrace of your anam cara."
