Death allows us to look at our lives as a whole. It helps us be in full.
To understand you’re going to die is to actually live in the fullness of life.
Death can help you as a spur to action/audacity. If you’re conscious that one day it’s lights out, you will see that your time is not only limited but valuable enough to get up, get out and get something. [not letting your entire life pass you by]
We are beings-toward-death. We don’t actually realize we are going to die. We do not realize our time in this world is limited.
