A personal exploration of mortality and death, the inevitable journey of human life, and the acceptance of faith.
Understanding Death illustrates the need to prepare for this important moment, even though many ignore its inevitability. There is no escape from death and the grief that can consume one when faced by the loss of family and friends.
The author's personal insight offers encouragement that death is not the end but the beginning of a new spiritual existence. The author surveys his own life, the decisions he has made over the years, and how those experiences have impacted him. He especially focuses on his discovery and exploration of the Bahá'í Faith and his eventual acceptance of Bahá'u'lláh's teachings. Accepting that death is not the end, that there is another journey, and that there is time to accept the inevitable and prepare for the life hereafter can bring peace and comfort to all.
