"Given the sheer quantity of death around us, why not use this merciless light to better see who we are?"This is a good question! Thisreminds me of RamanaMaharishi'squestion of humanity, Who Am I? As a former hospice chaplain, I was surprised and curious why so many people are afraid of death. I wonder if because we have little refection into ourselves and we live this span between birth and death completely identified with our bodies and personhood which is an illusion. With self reflection/inquiry the veil of our divisions lift and we began to see our oneness. The more we turn our eyes inward, perhaps"the river of silence" will help us, as was stated, to flow peacefullytowards that end point we call death.

You are spot on! In my life with Christ, I am yet in "earth's womb". In my life with Christ, I have yet to BE BORN! Amen
