Inner peace is a state of being, not an emotion. Emotions are a response in the body to thoughts in the head about something that happens. Inner peace is indifferent to what happens.
“His days are like grass, he flourishes like a flower of the field; the wind passes over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more.”
The sweetness of life is its temporariness.
What we call the human person is a 50 trillion-celled constellation of habits and memories. When these go, so does the person.
Without death, life would have no meaning, no sweetness. Death is life in its most sacred aspect. If I fear death, I fear change.
