Death and Dying


By Joan Law
Feng Shui Joan’s Way

Dying, a formerly taboo subject in our culture is now receiving some much-needed attention. Often, because we avoid thinking about death we miss out on so many opportunities to appreciate life

Facing our own mortality and preparing for it is not only a special gift to those we love, but can also serve as a gift to ourselves if we allow it to deepen the meaning of our personal relationships and to recognize the beauty and the blessings of each and every day.

Neither your physician nor your family should have to guess at your wishes. All of us should have “living wills,” which describe how we wish to be treated, or not, as we approach our final days, and we should name a health-care advocate in a legal document. That person is responsible for making sure our wishes are carried out in the event we are unable to speak for ourselves. This isn’t meant to be a morbid conversation, but a very human one. Please consider what you want, both in life and during it’s close. By transforming the most difficult conversations into an opportunity, it can change not only the way we die, but also the way we live.
