Death’s Transitory Gift

The third aspect of the tragic triad concerns death.  But it concerns life as well, for at any time each of the moments of which life consists is dying, and that moment will never recur.  And yet is not this transitoriness a reminder that challenges us to make the best possible use of each moment of our lives?

  1. My mind says “yes! Absolutely true”, but my heart does not agree for some reason. I have re-read it several times, and I am left with a vague feeling of “but…”, yet I cannot figure out why?! Intruiguing… thanks for sharing! 🙂

    1. Maybe it’s the jumping off point for something that does feel right 🙂 thanks for reading! I like how Frankl thinks, particularly his idea about the importance of finding a sense of purpose and fulfillment.
