For me, I have quite suddenly left northern California, where I lived for 35 years, and have found myself in FLorida after a month-long drive across country. It's a bit like a near-death experience. Other people I know have gone through a similar kind of move, either downsizing or moving to a new place. Others are dealing with injuries or illness. And yet others have found that the tsunami has lifted them into the nonphysical world through the transition of death.
Several of my friends have died this year. I mentioned CIndy Black, my publisher. And after I wrote the last blog piece, someone from Japan wrote and reminded me that another dear friend had died earlier this year—Hiroshi Ohuchi. He was a beautiful, kind, smart spiritual teacher who translated many books, and I was close with his family. I looked on his website (http://www.mfi.or.jp/hiroshi/condo/index.html) and found the following bit of an interview he did with someone. I found it very moving, and in it, a feeling of the attitude I want to carry in my life.
Question: How do you want to be remembered when you do die?
