"She could not accommodate herself to a small and regimented reality. And so finally, after a couple of decades, she created a new one. From the inside."
From Wild Mercy by Mirabai Starr
As an end-of-life doula, I’m trained to guide people to find meaning in their lives, come to terms with their unfinished business, have those really hard conversations, and think deeply about all the joy, fulfillment, and love they’ve experienced. As a result, they often come to know their fears, hopes, regrets, and gratitudes at the deepest level. They find deep joy in living and themselves. Except... they’re at the end of their life.
Can you imagine what would happen if we, the living, explored these things before we got the point of having to?
In 2004, my partner and I sold most of our things and moved across the US to create a new life, in a new place, away from almost everything we knew. We laid our old life to rest without guarantee of the new.
I now know that if we hadn’t made that decision, we would have spent our whole life dying from the inside out.
WHAT IF WE EMBRACED THESE DEATHS AS A NECESSARY, INEVITABLE PART OF LIFE?
If you’re really feeling what I’m saying here, you’re ready to uplevel your life.
