I want to believe those who suffered a lot in this life--maybe they were really poor or born with a disease--will have a chance to be whole and happy on another plane, or in another life on earth. I want to believe I'll see the people I love again, and that I'll survive the expiration of my body in one way or another. I'd like to think that my deceased dear ones know when I'm thinking of them and can hear when I talk to them. But I don't know that with any certainty, and that hurts, because then I'm just talking to air and walls.
I understand that death is a part of the cycle of things, just as birth and falling in love. Yet a part of me fears it, kind of like how I was scared on my first day of kindergarten. It's facing the unknown. The poem by Dylan Thomas called "Do Not Go Gentle into that Good Night" comes to mind. "Rage, rage, against the dying of the light." How does that view of death compare with the Druid view, if there is a Druidic view of death?
I'd love to hear your thoughts.
