Death is not the greatest loss in life. It is simply a shedding of the physical body like the butterfly shedding its cocoon. It is not the end of physical body that should worry us. Our concern must be to live while we are alive. If we live deeply, we should not fear death. The greatest loss is what dies within us while we live. The following narrative explains death beautifully.

Your hardest times often lead to the greatest moments of your life. Keep the faith. It will all be worth it in the end.

As the story goes, a sick man turned to his doctor as he was preparing to leave the examination room and said, “Doctor, I am afraid to die. Tell me what lies on the other side.” Very quietly, the doctor said, “I don’t know.”

“You don’t know? You, a Christian man, do not know what is on the other side?” The doctor while holding the handle of the door; on the other side came a sound of scratching and whining, and as he opened the door, a dog sprang into the room and leaped on him with an eager show of gladness.

Sunsets are not endings. If you have enough faith they are beginnings.-Hima Sudha Gummadi

Turning to the patient, the doctor said, “Did you notice my dog? He’s never been in this room before. He didn’t know what was inside. He knew nothing except that his master was here, and when the door opened, he sprang in without fear. I know little of what is on the other side of death, but I do know one thing… I know my Master is there and that is enough.

May today, there be peace within you. Thank God for what you have; trust Him for what you need. Believe that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

 It is only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up, we will then begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it was the only one we had.~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
