You can face anything properly, elegantly, when you meet life where it is, in the moment. When conditions are fresh and joyous, we can delight in that changing image. When the karma and goodness sustaining life is exhausted, we can look death right in its face. We live life wisely and compassionately in the beginning, middle, and end.
–Ajahn Sumano Bhikkhu, Meeting the Monkey Halfway
The important point is that life is not over there.
May the force be with you
