Questions of Death

Death has woven herself into my life. As a guest, her presence allows me to appreciate life. I reflect on death pretty much every day, from snippets of a thought of five seconds, to a deep contemplation for five minutes. At least once a day I muse: If I died today, would I regret my life? my choices? What would I leave behind?

Would I remember my spiritual life? Srila Prabhupad? my spiritual master, Radhanath Swami? Would my soul come to find him for shelter again?

What would the last words on my tongue be? The last thoughts on my mind?

Krishna. Krishna. Krishna.

When the sun sets on my life, please allow me to return to You.

' Beginning With The End in Mind " That helps to plan our life and end it the way we want to .. Can we do it Bhishma Pitama's way ? Guess we can .

To write is to dare the soul. So write.
