Meaningful life and death

Death is one of those things nobody wants to think about.  It seems, almost, as if everyone just walks around pretending like it doesn’t exist.

What if I told you this wasn’t a normal behavior?  What if I told you this is purely cultural?

I imagine most of us would laugh at the thought.  Who wants to think about death, right?

But it’s true.

Think about it: it was only very recently that death has become something that we could have the luxury to put out of our minds.  For thousands of years, humans have had to deal with high infant mortality, death during childbirth, plagues, unadvanced medical care, and everything else.


1. We have an end goal

3. We cherish every moment
4. We have more humility
5. We become more spiritual
