Birth Vs. Death

“Don’t be afraid of death, be afraid of the unlived life. Birth is not one act, it is a process.  images

The aim of life is to be fully born though its tragedy is that most of us die before we are thus born.

To live is to be born every minute. Death occurs when birth stops”  

Erich Fromm, lifted from the book, Soul Proprietorship, written by my friend and mentor, Al Killeen.

  2. I love that. I always tell my kids to make sure they live while they are alive. Not just survive, but live. I would say I am not afraid of being dead (I know where I will be at that point)…. but how I get there is important.
