Ah, dear reader, I sense you are growing tired of skeletons and skulls by now, but we are not quite done with them yet.
I promise we will finish up before Halloween.
In working under rather average circumstances this afternoon in Suzhou, the following thoughts and understandings came to me, perhaps as a consequence of my ongoing work on the question of death... which is not, as it turns out, a depressing question of morbidity at all, but rather a question that brings us closer to a vital wellspring of life which we are generally unaware of. Maybe this was why Gurdjieff felt we ought to keep the question so close to ourselves in our daily Presence.
Perhaps nothing can make us so grateful for life as death; and we can actually become grateful for each death close to us, if we learn how.
And only in this way can we come to appreciate life.
Should I say more? Maybe not.
May your soul be filled with light.
