I hope, as you read this, that you are well and free from any indications that your life will be cut short. At the same time, I invite you to take a moment today to contemplate death.
Personally, I tend to skate by much of the time without reflecting too deeply on this inevitable aspect of life. When I do contemplate impermanence though, the beauty and preciousness of my experience of living becomes illuminated. So, it seems to me like something worth doing, perhaps more regularly. Maybe you feel the same way.
In this video, Elysabeth Williamson offers some guidance for living in moment-to-moment, day-to-day relationship with our own death. As she goes on to say later in the interview, the result can be incredibly liberating and joyful.
