To fear the worst
oft cures the worse.

- William Shakespeare -
- Troilus and Cressida -



moon, trees, blue, snow, dark




The only thing that burns in hell
is the part of us
that will not let go of our life:
our memories, our attachments.

They burn them all away,
but they are not punishing us,
they are freeing our soul.

If we are frightened of dying
and we are holding on,
we will see devils tearing our life away.

If we have made our peace,
then the devils are really angels
freeing us from the earth.

- Meister Eckhart -

For those who seek to understand it,
death is a highly creative force.
The highest spiritual values of life
can originate from the thought
and study of death.

- Elizabeth Kübler-Ross -

I keep the telephone of my mind open to
peace, harmony, health, love, and abundance.
Then, whenever doubt, anxiety, or fear try to call me,
they will keep getting a busy signal -
and soon they'll forget my number.

- Edith Armstrong -

The mind can only do
one thing at a time.

Cowards die many times before their deaths;
The valiant never taste of death but once.
Of all the wonders that I yet have heard,
It seems to me most strange that men should fear;
Seeing that death, a necessary end,
will come when it will come.

- William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar -

A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.

is to make films about them.

Who sees all beings in his own Self,
and his own Self in all beings,
loses all fear.

The man that runs away
lives to die another day.

- A. E. Housman -



moon, trees, blue, snow, dark




To fear death
is nothing other than to think
oneself wise when one is not.

For it is to think one knows
what one does not know.

No one knows whether death
may not even turn out to be
the greatest blessings of human beings.

And yet people fear it
as if they knew for certain
it is the greatest evil.

- Socrates -

Having nothing,
nothing can he lose.

- William Shakespeare -

Fear is the process of the mind
in the struggle of becoming.
In becoming good
there is the fear of evil;
in becoming complete,
there is the fear of loneliness.

- Krishnamurti -



moon, trees, blue, snow, dark




If people know that they are respected
as part of the human family …
the ending of life can be
a final fulfillment
of all that has gone before.

As the modern hospice began
by listening to patients
let one patient have the last word:

“Loneliness is not so much
a matter of being alone
as of not belonging”.

- Dame Cicely Saunders -

The more we know,
the more fully we trust,
for we shall feel with utter certainty
that we and our dead are alike
in the hands of perfect Love.

- C. W. Leadbeater -

I myself feel,
and also tell other Buddhists
that the question of Nirvana
will come later.
There is not much hurry.

If in day to day life
we lead a good life, honestly, with love,
with compassion, with less selfishness,
then automatically it will lead to Nirvana.

- H.H. The 14th Dalai Lama -



moon, trees, blue, snow, dark




Many stars cannot
be concealed
by a small cloud.

- Maori Proverb -



moon, trees, blue, snow, dark




We are ignorant of the Beyond
because this ignorance
is the condition of our own life.
Just as ice cannot know fire
except by melting and vanishing.

- Jules Renard -
