The Fine Art Of Dying Gracefully

“Moving from the physical to the non-physical is the greatest moment in your life, so it is very important that you make it happen gracefully and wonderfully.”

—Sadhguru

People ask me, “If death is inevitable, why should I spend time and energy preparing for it?” Don't forget that what you refer to as death is a unique happening. Almost everything else in your life may happen many times over, but the final moment, when you transcend the limitations of your physical body, will happen only once in your lifetime. Moving from the physical to the non-physical is the greatest moment in your life, so it is very important that you make it happen gracefully and wonderfully.

But if you are to make a long journey through unfamiliar terrain, you might do all this and more. Likewise, when compared to the journey after death, the journey from your birth to death is just a short one. The time you spend in an embodied state is nothing compared to the time spent in a disembodied state. Yet, you have made a disproportionate level of preparation for this.
