Bereavement

I Remember Your Name In The Night

Death remains the eternal question shadowing human life, and we should be suspicious of easy answers to its mystery. We need to look at it without falsifying it or deluding ourselves. We cannot give a satisfactory account of it, and yet we cannot leave the subject alone. To remain silent would be to see death only as a brute fact, and we cannot live humanly with brute facts; we have to see them humanly, and this makes them human facts.

Coming to understand the fictional selves that enter and shape our thinking and feeling – and striving to live beyond them – is the homework we have to do in preparation for death. To enter its mystery, we need to open the mind and heart, through meditation, to a deeper way of living.
