Inspiration – Death

light after death


“Death is not extinguishing the light; it is putting out the lamp because the dawn has come.”

~ Rabindranath Tagore

I find these words comforting, and I wanted to share them today for those of you who may be touched by death.

These words embrace the understanding that there is a light within all of us that continues after the physical body dies.

After all, there is no getting around death for each and every one of us.

We all face the inevitable outcome.

Instead of avoiding this reality, let us begin to explore our inner light, and keep an open mind towards whatever might happen next.

When the light goes out, the dawn will come.

(The light within me recognizes the light within you)
