All things must pass, including us. We spend more than a little time and energy obsessing on the reality of dying: we do we not spend an equal amount of thought on how we choose to live? We can rest assured that our time will end, and that it is simply and perfectly normal. Indeed, we will spend infinitely longer in not-Being than in Being. So let us, instead, accept that our time is precious, and concentrate on how it is best spent. Let us focus first on our relationships at hand – our spouses, our children, our siblings, our parents. Let us tend to our relationship with the environment, and our relationships at work. May we be every mindful of our sacred relationships with our friends, for much of life happens here. And may we pay special attention to our relationships with those with whom we disagree. May our presence be a blessing in the world. For the Celebration of Life, we rejoice. Blessed Be, and Amen.
