You don’t have to be dying to embrace death and embracing death isn’t a bad thing. It just means that you accept your mortality and choose to live your life without the constant fear of death. By embracing death it frees you up to be more of yourself; so then stop holding yourself in restraint. When you embrace death you find it easier to let go of all those nasty things that you hold on to. Being more passionate is easier when you embrace your mortality and understand that there is limited time or passions. Appreciating and acknowledging others becomes easier when you come to realize that we are all here for a brief time. Making peace with your mortality may be the best gift that you can give yourself.
Everything that you want to do in your life may well be controlled by the fear of death or you may feel that you have the time later to do what you would like to do. When you acknowledge your mortality you come to realize that life is fleeting and it doesn’t have to be terrifying. You may even find yourself more terrified of not living life as you yourself should be. Don’t try to fit in when your soul cries to stand out! One of the things that you may find when you embrace death is that you have needlessly held yourself back. Be yourself and enjoy the time that you have left.
When you embrace death you see how awful it is to hold on to grudges and you learn the importance of forgiveness. By learning to forgive you spend a lot less time being bitter and angry about the people who have hurt you and it gives you a good change. You can be more free to love those who need your love. Because life is simply too short to be lived filled with hatred. We all die and you really don’t want to die with a heart filled with poison do you? Forgiveness gives you a change to more fully embrace what could be your last moments. Breathe easy and learn to forgive.
How many times in your life have you held back on your passions? Passion is a driving force for some while, for others it is something that they keep hidden. Embrace death by letting your passions out to play. With your passions out you will feel more alive. Some people have no idea that they haven’t lived until they let their passions fly! A genuine sense of passion gives you a feeling of being alive that nothing else can do.
Appreciate others for being in your life for, we often forget that we are all connected. The gift of appreciation makes waves in peoples lives even if we can not see it. When we embrace death we realize how valuable the people who have appreciated us are. To feel appreciated is to feel accepted and gives you a sense of belonging. Many people need that in our lives and it seems like we are not sharing enough.
By embracing death you make peace with your mortality. All of us have a beginning and an end to the lives that we live. If you can make peace with your own mortality then you have a better chance of enjoying the part in the middle more. You will enjoy every breath and every little thing that once annoyed you in the past will not bother you so much. Enjoy the company of people who you love; even when they are doing the things that annoy you. We don’t know how many individual days we have, so, enjoy them.
Every day life slips away and we can be horrified by that or, we could make the most of it. By embracing the inevitable you can make the most of every day. You can be yourself, it is okay as you see that trying to be someone else is a waste of time. Also a waste of time is hanging on to old grudges, it is better to live and forgive than to gestate hate. When realizing the inevitable death you will want to live with more passion and it will be a more genuine sense of passion. Then you will also see that the greatest gift that you can bestow on everyone you meet is to show genuine appreciation and acknowledgement for these small gestures really do go a long way. When you make peace with your mortality it can help free you to live life more fully than you have before.
