A FABULOUS conversation between Helen Callanan and Kirsty Salisbury which will interest anyone planning on dying this lifetime. 😁
Before I die, I'm doing everything I can to raise the level of honest and open conversations with our family, friends and colleagues about our needs and wants regarding our and their deaths, including all the plans we've put in place regardless of age, stage and health. Westerners, in particular, aren't all that good about discussing and planning for death including their pets. 🌱
“How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering in competition with yours each year?” the reporter asked.
“Why sir,” said the farmer, “Don’t you know? The wind picks up pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbors grow inferior corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors grow good corn.”
So it is with our lives. Those who want to live meaningfully and well must help enrich the lives of others, for the value of a life is measured by the lives it touches. The quality of response and joy depends on the quality of thoughts and love we share and spread.
And those who choose to be joyful must help others find happiness, for the welfare of each is bound up with the welfare of all."
