Sweet conversation with Ram Dass today exploring the many ways love shows up in the dying process. Love is the holding that enables us to trust and move beyond previous limitations. Love as the aspect of total receptivity that allows us to include all of the beauty and difficulty. Love as the lubricant that let’s us slip out of the boundaries of the body. Love as the longing that calls us home.
THE FIVE INVITATIONS
Discovering What Death
Can Teach Us About Living Fully
Death is not waiting for us at the end of a long road. Death is always with us, in the marrow of every passing moment. She is the secret teacher hiding in plain sight, helping us to discover what matters most.
Life and death are a package deal. They cannot be pulled apart and we cannot truly live unless we are aware of death. The Five Invitations is an exhilarating meditation on the meaning of life and how maintaining an ever-present consciousness of death can bring us closer to our truest selves.
