Life (or death?) by Anu Shah | Words Can Heal

Life is all about death...nothing in life is permanent but death is. We are born because we are going to die someday and if death wouldn't be the end point then we wouldn't have been born... Life is nothing but advancement or a slow journey towards death which is the only evident thing. Life is mysterious but death resolves all the mysteries. 

Life is complex, full of surprises, struggles, highs and lows, and entirely unpredictable whereas death is like pole star: stark and shining brightly even in the mist. You can't miss it. It was and will be there guiding you all along towards the destination which is inevitable. There are no struggles after death. Death is concrete and certain. Death gives assurance of being liberated from the state of being imprisoned by life. With life comes inconstancy and we are enslaved by the perfidious and vexed emotions.

Life demands understanding of things, people etc. Whereas death is self-explanatory and doesn't demand any understanding. In a broader sense, the profundity of death would alone suffice that death is way too much lucid and unpretentious than life and yet we 'mortals' strive for making life better.
