Description

This book attempts to impart strength and understanding to those who are facing death, whether their own or of one they are caring for.

But this is not really a book on Death and dying. It is a book about life and living: what life is for, who we are as human beings, why we are here. Yet it is death that forces these questions on us. If we could live forever, there would be little urgency in finding answers. But the fact is that whatever our age or the status of our health, none of us has time to waste in learning what life is for.

In this sense, then, death is a friend - not the clinical experience of dying, but the fact of our mortality. We begin to take life seriously when we take death seriously. This is not a negative observation. It is completely positive, for it brings life into focus. Every moment is precious; each day should be full of meaning. Once we grasp this, we find there is no time to squander. Fulfilling the purpose of life becomes our overriding priority, and that brings joy, hope love and meaning to us and to those around us.
