Death is a difficult topic to talk about. It is believed by some that just before death all diseases leave the body. The reason for this may be that life wants you to go unto death with full awareness. Now, not everyone has to believe in that. But the fact remains that if you live your life with full awareness, if you have taken risks in life with full awareness, if you have participated in crisis (be it natural or planned adventure), you will die with full awareness too.You must not be afraid to discuss death. Don't get upright about it. Instead, let this knowledge help you to live every moment of your life fully, because every moment matters. That's what happens when somebody knows they only have a week left. You can be certain that they would tell you that the most important week they ever had was that last week. Everything is a million times more meaningful in that final week. In death you have to encounter this fact: that the body is going; now it cannot be retained any more. The mind is leaving you – now you are no more in control of the mind. The ego is dissolving – you cannot even say ’I’. You tremble with fear, on the verge of nothingness. You will be no more.
