Death is simply a confirmation of no return. If they're gone and you are confident of it, I don't really see a difference. In fact just to double check, take it a step further and ask yourself: "Does it matter if they die after they're gone?". If it does, It does matter :)
well, then, if it does matter, doesnt it mean that we are kinda hoping they would return? and if it doesnt, doesnt it mean that we are able to live our lives alone and move on (and are also branded as 'cold' in the process)?
Death? Much ado about nothing. Just BE.
if u kill em in ur head, allz cool. if u cant..uhuh..problem !
I agree with Sony. "Death is simply a confirmation of no return." I always think of people who are looking for missing children. That almost always ends badly. But it is usually not over and done until a body is found - ending any hope of a happy ending. I am a relatively new parent and I cannot imagine how a situation like that must twist your heart and soul. But to your point, is there a difference dead and missing?... not really... except your ability to break your own heart (through expectation) - People do come and go. A lot. Appreciate them whilst you can I say.
In response to my earlier response - Yup... either hoping or turning stone cold. We simply do not live in an world stripped off "time"... where we can continue hoping without results or move on and not feel the change :) Depending on how you've evolved over the years, If they're dead or gone, you will decide how it influences you. Globally it doesn't matter... they're both the same.
yup.. i had read somewhere that people who fear change are those who cannot/doesnt want to adapt. like JN said, i guess we should appreciate when we can and move on when change happens.I had posted this poem by a great indian philosopher loooong time ago, but i still find its one of my all time favs. http://jyothykarat.blogspot.com/2006/06/reverse-arrow-of-time.html
