005: Death, Sorrow, and the Secret to Living Life to the Fullest
Everybody dies, and at some point everything we love is lost. It an unfortunate truth about life that we all have to come to terms with at some point. For most of us, confronting death can be the most challenging part of life. In this episode we are going to take a deep philosophical look into death, sorrow, and the secret to living living life to the fullest.
I started my philosophical investigation into the concept of death, sorrow, and loss in 2010. Since the start, it has been a dream of mine to assemble my findings into an easy to understand, linear teaching that would help people understand the processes that our mind takes us through when we experience loss.
