It is only on this side of your final breath that you will have an opportunity to believe in what happens on the other side of that last breath.
This is faith.
“Every man must do two things alone;
he must do his own believing and his own dying."
- Martin Luther
So many people struggle mightily against our common destiny, seeing nothing about it as good. Meanwhile, others face death willingly, almost eagerly, as though they are arriving at a long-sought destination or getting a chance at last to become the self they knew they were meant to be. Here is something I know as a doctor: persistent pain is always a signal that deeper investigation is warranted. Maybe a question that will not go away is meant to serve the same purpose.
"As much as we might wish that scientists could discover some sort of “fountain of youth,” the fact remains that death is our common fate. And so we’re asking the question, “How is it possible to have a good death?”
Join us for Hope for Every Season with Dr. Pamela for hope for your health, words for your weariness, and faith for your fears. We bring insight about each season with those who have lived through them and experts in the field of dying.
What you didn’t know you needed…until you did. Sign up for your pace and my promise to give you my best and the best from the rest who are living The Good Death Lifestyle.
