The last post discusses and helps to dispell the individual and collective fear that attends the dying process, mainly because we have whisked death out of the home and installed it in impersonal institutions where what could be a sacred ceremony is often viewed as a medical “failure” and interpreted from a purely physical point of view.
So horrifically sad, our western culture’s fear of death! Indeed, this final taboo, against thinking about, talking about and preparing for death, may well be the underlying root cause of our collective dysfunctionality, leading to addictions of all kinds, including the habitual projection of our secret, internal terror of death and dying onto the external world through repeatedly enacting the killing fields of war.
