Just finishing a short book written by a hospice doctor, I am left feeling the profundity of the end of life wisdom. It is the greatest and most potent wisdom we can ever hear, yet we rarely think of it. In fact, many people discount end of life wisdoms as hallucinations or coping mechanisms brought on by pain relieving drugs. This one paragraph sums it up:
“Don’t worry, and don’t let anyone pull you away from your passion. Every soul can help the world if it’s done in pure passion and with unconditional love for others. And what you do for them is wonderful as well. It is all mutually rewarding. It’s for your own heart too.”
He then goes on to quote a hospice patient who has been visited with great wisdom, “Work with love and kindness in all you do, every second of every day. Forgive yourself when you fail.” WOW, what is more important than that??
