You know I was always and I am still fascinated by Death. Well, it’s not actually fascinating to see someone die and neither do I wish someone to die. But think of it, when Death stares at us, there is nothing in this world that can stop it. In the face of death, everything just disappears, I mean everything. Your money, fame, material items, relationships, dear ones, or close friends. This is why I call it as fascinating. I used to question myself, if assume I am gonna live for another 6 months then will I change my lifestyle, will I remain the same, will I indulge in something which I wanted to do for a long period of time, how will my friends miss me, will the world around me change, will people around me act differently……so many questions.
As Steve Jobs said, “Death is the destination we all share. No one wants to die. Even a person who wants to go to heaven don’t want to die”
In Life we have choices to make, but in case of death we don’t have many choices to make, actually none. But I have seen many people don’t want to talk about death. Like, how talking about sex is still a taboo thing in India, death is also similar to that. It’s a fact that no one can escape death. Yet we don’t want to talk about death. Talking about death doesn’t mean we are endorsing it or wishing someone, but just a matter of acceptance of the fact. No one knows when, where and how we are all gonna die. Whatever we have accomplished throughout our life, just seem of little or no importance in the face of death. No matter how good or bad you were in your life, everything becomes equal. I just thought to myself about it for a minute it felt kind of relieved. I mean no more responsibilities, no power, no one to hurt you, no one to break your heart, no need to satisfy someone, no need to compromise, no expectations, no one can discriminate you….just nothing.
When death stares at us, it’s time to end our journey (good or bad, worthy or not), on this earth and move on to a newer place without knowing how and when we will come back to life, if we do come back. So do what you love, if not, try your best to love what you are doing without any expectations because in front of death everything gets levelled.
