Birth and Death, are the respective start and end point of every living being, irrespective of the species, caste, creed, colour, religion etcetera. From the day, living beings come into existence, the countdown for their end starts. As soon as we are born, we start the journey towards our sole destination i.e. Death. The only thing that is certain to happen with each one of us is Death. None of the living beings has a body that is immortal. No one of us is going to stay alive forever, not me, not you and not any of our loved ones.
Then, why is it that we can never accept this truth named Death and take it as a normal incident? The spontaneous answer to this question is that we are an emotional being and it is our attachment towards others that makes us feel sad for their loss. Now, if that so, then isn’t there any way to overcome this stage of an outburst of sorrow in our life? Obviously, we all feel sad on the demise of our loved ones. We may have a lot of things left inside us that we always wanted to share with them, but alas they are no more around us to lend their ears to our talks. Nevertheless, we have to be strong enough to bear and overcome such incidences. Let’s see, if, in this blog, we can figure out some way or the other, to get over that uninvited sad period in our life.
To be very frank, writing about death somewhere makes me feel low. It gives me the thoughts which I never ever want to come true in reality. As per me, to think about death is the most negative thing in this world. But still, I can’t change the reality that death is the sole destination of every living being. We all are helpless and when our respective time will arrive to embrace the death, no power will be able to stop our soul from leaving the body and moving towards another journey.
We mourn on the departure of the soul, even though we know that the soul is immortal and it’s only the body of the person that dies and leave this world. Most of us can’t stay unaffected by the death of someone who was close to us. We may cry, we may feel their absence, we may curse them, we may miss them, but the reality is that they will not be around us anymore and our feelings no more matters to them. They will not come back to wipe our tears or lend their shoulders to us.
As soon as the body is dead it is unaffected by any worldly things that are going around it. There is no sign of stress, trouble, concern, etcetera on the face of a dead body, whatsoever, may be the state when the person was alive. No more diseases, no more pains, no more tensions, no more fun, no more happiness, no more pleasure. The dead body may have left behind many unachieved dreams, untold secrets, wishes etcetera, but the very time their soul left the body, all these things also get buried inside them. It raises above all the feelings. The body reaches its ultimate peaceful state when it is dead.
Although, we all know this truth that one day each one of us is going to die, but still we fear our death, as well as, we are scared of the death of our closed and loved ones. The very thought that one day someone will not be there with us, completely shatter us from inside. We can’t imagine our life in absence of our near and dear ones. But in reality, our life goes on, even after the departure of the soul who was once our lifeline and heartbeat. Life is all about moving forward.
Now, is there a way we can accept the death with ease? Is there a way we can let go the thoughts of someone who was extremely close to us? Is there a way we can attain peace of mind at the time when the mountain of sorrow fell upon us? One thing, as per me, that could lift us from this blow of death is connecting with the Supreme Soul, the Almighty. I know it is easier said than done. However, this path can help us in getting over the sadness and vacuum that has been created by the death. Connecting with the Supreme Soul through meditation is the way out, that can bring solace and that can settle the turmoil of emotions flowing inside us at such painful times.
Also, until the time we are alive let’s not die inside us and waste our life. Let’s live life to the fullest, live each day as if it is the last day of our life, let’s share all the feelings with our loved ones, Kyunki Kya pata kal ho na ho (Because who knows, if there will be a tomorrow or not).
Do take a very good care of yourself, as well as, everyone around you. Live healthy and long.
God Bless you all!
