Life and death

Inextricably bound one to the other

October 22nd 2022
Life and death: the whole of creation rests on these two words. Life cannot be understood without death, nor death without life. They go together, inextricably bound one to the other. As soon as life appears, it is immediately under threat of death. But death itself never has the last word: the moment its work is done, life takes over again, but in another form. Taken individually, the words life and death are actually meaningless. Death receives meaning from life, and life from death. This is why we shall never really understand life until the day we go through the doors of death into a new form of life.
