If you would like to pray for those who submit prayer requests, please fill out the form below. Here was a man who now for the first time found himself looking into the eyes of death--who was passing through one of those rare moments of experience when we feel the truth of a commonplace, which is as different from what we call knowing it, as the vision of waters upon the earth is different from the delirious vision of the water which cannot be had to cool the burning tongue. Dying is like coming to the end of a long novel--you only regret it if the ride was enjoyable and left you wanting more.
It seems a strange and repugnant conclusion that with the cessation of consciousness at death, there ceases to be any knowledge of having existed. We sometimes congratulate ourselves at the moment of waking from a troubled dream: it may be so the moment after death.
Brief and powerless is man's life; on him and all his race the slow, sure doom falls pitiless and dark.
When a house has just lost its soul, a stricken silence falls over the sudden emptiness that no one will fill again. Death is a great revealer of what is in a man, and in its solemn shadow appear the naked lineaments of the soul. Being dead will be no different from being unborn -- I shall be just as I was in the time of William the Conqueror or the dinosaurs or the trilobites. What does thou ail, O mortal man, or to what purpose is to spend thy life in groans and complaints, under the apprehensions of Death? All stories, if continued far enough, end in death, and he is no true-story teller who would keep that from you. Are not the thoughts of the dying often turned towards the practical, painful, obscure, visceral aspect, towards the "seamy side" of death which is, as it happens, the side that death actually presents to them and forces them to feel, and which far more closely resembles a crushing burden, a difficulty in breathing, a destroying thirst, than the abstract idea to which we are accustomed to give the name of Death? When among the graves of thy fellows, walk with circumspection; thine own is open at thy feet.

When the commonplace 'We must all die' transforms itself suddenly into the acute consciousness 'I must die--and soon,' then death grapples us, and his fingers are cruel; afterwards, he may come to fold us in his arms as our mother did, and our last moment of dim earthly discerning may be like the first. Most people live in denial of Death's patient courtship until, late in life and deep in sickness, they become aware of him sitting bedside. And all the noises that may be made later in that house will be like a scandalous din, ugly echoes from one room to another, from one corridor to another, sharp and discordant as if the walls are no longer able to absorb any music once the source of harmony has been taken away. Bookended by oblivion, we are caught in the vice of terror, squeezed to bursting by the approaching end.

The imagine the state to be one in which they can have emotions such as they now have on contemplating the cessation of life.


But this strange detail about the power of death can only be picked up by ears that are very attentive to the smallest murmurs of life.
Are they not vanish'd and lost in the flux of time, as if thou hadst put water into a sieve?
But at the last all the mental powers simultaneously ebb, as do the bodily powers, and with them goes the capacity for emotion in general. Rational people go through these empty spaces with the serenity of a lawyer, and their indulgent smiles categorise you if you decide to point out in their presence that there is something lacking in the atmosphere. Bethink thyself then of retreat, and leave the world with the same content and satisfaction as a well satisfied guest rises from an agreeable feast.
I am a very dedicated member of Soldiers' Angels and I am a part of a team that writes to the families of our fallen heroes. It is, indeed, possible that in its last stages consciousness is occupied by a not displeasurable sense of rest. We can only infer that it is a specialized and individualized form of that Infinite and Eternal Energy which transcends both our knowledge and our imagination; and that at death its elements lapse into the Infinite and Eternal Energy whence they were derived.
And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. The power of numbers is never more evident than when we use them to speculate on the time of our dying. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away.
