Dying in the true sense means therefore the people to throw off the earthly shell and enter into the eternal light, eternal heaven. This conception of immortality of the Soul as the becoming and being in the purest light, in the eternal spirit in the heavenly clarity, holiness and truth, is the most sublime which is able to be thought.

This opportunity gives us in every moment of our lives. Every day we must live (happy and healthy) is a gift from God, that we too should appreciate. The sad thing is that we people often need a dramatic event, with the theme of death to deal at all.
