Death is inevitable. Every living thing have a lifespan. A time to grow and a time to die. Doesn't matter whether rich or poor, young or old, strong or weak, short or tall, handsome or urgly, black or white. "All that ever breath count will stop count"(Uwagboe Ogieva). While few knows when their breath will stop count, many do not know.Is death actually a gain or loss? as magnified by late Arch Bishop Benson Idahosa?
Death is that moment you sleep and cannot open your eyes again. when your breath stops in a moment, loose consciousness of all that exist around you. When in a moment you loose touch with reality, loose sight and images of life. Loose all you've ever known, you ever have, you ever worked for, loose all you ever acquire to others without coming back again to retake, reclaim, dictates or partake.
"Ede uwu iro foo" (when you die, all your thoughts ends) - Great Benin proverb
"Ai wu mu agbon rrie owa"(you dont take your physical world with you when you die) - Great Benin Proverb
Study shows people who think of death are more purposeful living their life. Many make life insurance. Some do will on their properties to be shared as they wish because can no longer have say again after they die and gone forever. Others just live for living sake without too worries, freethinking because they have nothing to loose or gain at long run.
What if all you need to live is self sufficient? NOT all that greed, envy, jealousy and hate which are *excesses* instead of sharing, love, generousity, little kindness while you still breathing?
Beside death, it's been obvious life situations and conditions fluctuates. Situations can change, conditions can change. Life itself is more a lesson to make one humble, take it with easy and be more humane dealing with oneself and others.
No one have power over death nor have choice, option or opportunity after you die.
Think of death and be humble. Do what you need do to live maximum of your time while still awake and breathing.
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else's life.”- Steve Job
"Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside while still alive" - Tupac Shakur
Life have a termination moment. How you want to live it is your choice
