Death, embracing from Warriors' Experience


  • Death, embracing

Question:

Théun, can you please speak to us about death? I have just been told that a very good friend of mine is dying from terminal cancer. I want to be strong, but I am not sure how to be strong at this point in time.

Answer:

:( Like all of us, I too have lost many friends in my life. Some of them died. Some of them "died." Some of them are still dying. Others of them will also die one day, as will all of us. I know no better way in which to embrace the poignancy of life other than to savour every moment of every step I take with a friend. Only in this way do I feel I can honour the privilege of being able to SHARE with a friend, even in the hours that death taps us on the shoulder.
