Another Perspective to Life

January 1, 2019

I was reading this book which was recommended to me, is called "On death and Dying" Elisabeth Kubler-Ross. I found this poem in the book. Reading it made me look at the difficulties in life in a total different manner. I understood the four major Existential questions:

* Freedom which comes with the added responsibilities

*Loneliness

*What is my purpose in life

*Death

 

that we all face in silence, inner somewhere in our subconscious, in the depth of our hearts, the fear that creates this icy cold feeling that we all try our best to avoid, here it goes:

 

"Let me not pray to be sheltered from

dangers, but to be fearless in facing them.

 

Let me not beg for stilling of 

my pain, but the heart to conquer it.

 

Let me not look for allies in life's battlefield,

but to own my own strength

 

Let me not crave in anxious fear to be

saved, but hope for the patience to win my freedom.

 

Grant me that I may not be a coward,

feeling your mercy in my success alone;

but let me find the grasp

of your hand in my failure"
