We have all thought about it, feared it, questioned it and some have even welcomed it.
Death...The final chapter or just the end of one chapter before the next page? And this, we've all wondered about.
So my question is how and where you would personally want your end to be? It's not intended to be a depressing question but rather one of personal
enlightenment and sharing with others.
I have thought about this since I was a teenager and I guess that's where many start to question their end. It's natural at that age to question death
but also to live like we have no fear and that it will never happen, could never happen to us personally.
So, my perfect ending?
Under a very old tree with the setting sun, warm on my face just low enough to see the first stars and the moon with a good book in my lap. A cool
glass of fresh natural spring water nearby. The tree would be next to a river or stream. It must be flowing water because I want to hear it, feel it
along with the wind and birds, insects surrounding me.
I would want it to be near some type of ancient structure that I could gaze upon with wonder of those that came before me. I don't want to know the
answers, just the wonder. Perhaps Angkor Wat or the Itsukushima Shrine of Japan.
And then slowly close my eyes for a short nap...
See? How could I be depressed at that point in time?
Anyways, just curious as to what others have imagined for their final moments.
Having read the posts so far I've just realized without seeing it at first, that I've gotten to know each member on a level of which we may have never
have had the opportunity to do so.
Thanks for sharing a very intimate thought.
