Even if one does not in the least accept 'spiritualist' evidence, it is still possible to receive the experience of death, both of oneself and loved ones, with equanimity in place of anxiety, dread and loss. At the time of death one has completed a lifetime's contribution to one's family, society and humanity. Your genes continue, as does your intellectual and creative input, and your service and compassion. In this way, you will be remembered and the world would never have been the same without your role. That is immortality.
New life is not possible without death of the old, and our lives play out a natural cycle; at the end of our lives it is indeed time to go. Even during our lives we sometimes need to experience the end of a cycle, such as the end of our employment when we retire, and be prepared to move on to the next stage of our life. We are prepared to end a cycle of life, or to accept death with equanimity, when we realize we have had all the opportunities we could ask for to experience, learn and contribute.
An understanding of the essential role death plays in the natural cycle of life, combined with knowledge of states beyond death, provide comfort and peace. The tools and coaching we recommend here support such understanding.
