“I wrote today’s article several years ago directly following a California retreat I held where I was shocked to find myself — in addressing someone’s experience of grief — talking about the notion that life was NOT precious. This was surprising because, despite death being a popular topic, I had never been shown that particular spiritual perspective before — hence I wrote the article.
In reading it let me remind you that the basis of what I teach is that there is no absolute truth and that all perspectives have value — which is the inclusive teaching of “ALL as truth”. This is why I like to explore perspectives that are commonly rejected. Therefore, in this article I am not saying that the idea that “life is precious” does not hold great value; I am just exploring the often overlooked value of the opposite perspective.”
