Come to listen,
to reflect, to be still …
The dying process is the culmination or peak
of development – the whole development –
of the spiritual journey
in which the total surrender into God
involves the gift of life itself.
Really we are dying into each nanosecond of time,
when we accept it.
Death is perhaps the most complete surrender,
or requires the most complete surrender.
And for that reason it is not death, but life,
a movement into fullness that we can’t imagine
from this side of the dying process.
