"It is our struggle against death that renders us invulnerable to life, and love. Death is not the enemy. Death teaches us the art of surrender, which is the essential energy that opens us to receive the abundance awaiting our opening. Death is our teacher, our advisor, our friend. Unconscious fear of death is behind every neurosis, every demand or attachment that we have. As young people, we believe in our own personal immortality, often taking foolish risks that push the limits. Then somewhere around mid-life, it changes. All of a sudden we are conscious of time 'running out'. Our bodies begin to show signs of wear, and fear takes over. The death/birth cycle is part of our very DNA. Rather than overcome death, our challenge becomes to learn how to surrender with grace. Socrates was known to remind those around him that one should always be “occupied in the practice of dying”. There is no way to fully live until we know how to die. We fight death because we are afraid. We want things to stay the same so that we can feel safe and secure. But that goes against the very nature of being. Learning to relinquish with grace, when necessary, is important if we are to have fulfilled lives." -says alternative therapyst Lynne Forrest.
