Those who believe they have plenty of time get ready only at the time of death. 

Then they are ravaged with regret. 

But isn’t it far too late? 

Buddhist Master Padmasambhava


It’s tragic that so many people don’t really appreciate life until they’re at the point of dying.

I have had the wonderful opportunity to face death at a young age, not once, but twice.  The first time was with a ski-doo accident at age 7, and the second time was a car accident at age 19. The second one was a real awakening for me, my first wake-up call. This is when I started to question and seek a meaning for life. I started to become aware of my own mortality.

I think for most people, how you face life has a lot to do with how you face death.

So what about you?

How do you view death?

Do you use life to prepare for death?


What about using  the prospect of death to live a more satisfying and fulfilling life?
