Inescapable Optimism

“Death is not the opposite of life, but a part of it.” – Haruki Murakami

“I think we’re all walking around right now lonely as hell. And our opportunity to rebirth, because death is not an endpoint, is a transformation moment. It’s an expansion beyond limits of this frail, biological shell that we carry around. And the instant that we step outside of that, we find out that the universe embraces us in every single second of our existence, in complete acceptance of who we are. We are enough, in and of our own identity of ‘I am,’  at every second of every point of our existence.” ~ Zach Bush, MD – from the article: “An End of Life Caregiver Has a Message About Death That You Need to Hear Right Now”, by Vic Bishop – via
