DEATH is the one thing that you can be certain about.  No one is getting off of this earth alive.  DEATH is the door that one day you must walk through.  Carlos Castaneda says in many of his writings that DEATH is your advisor.  That is true.  Learning to live with the certainty of your DEATH is a brave way to approach your daily life.  Allow DEATH to sit on your shoulder and advise you to live within the wisdom that it brings.  DEATH will ask you some tough questions such as:  Will this matter twenty-four hours from now?  Do you really need this?  How do you want to be remembered?  Were those words really necessary?  If today was your last day, how do you want to live it? Who do you need to forgive?  Who do you need forgiveness from?  DEATH is important and needs to be respected, not feared.  DEATH is a normal part of life.  We know we will all experience it.  How can DEATH be incorporated as important?  What is it about DEATH that you fear?  It is the fact that you are not certain about the afterlife?  Or is it that you fear the suffering you might have to go through to get to the other side?  What is the worse thing about Death?  What will be so bad if there is no other side?  Practice living as if you know you are dying and notice the changes you make in your life by allowing DEATH to be your advisor.
