Time To Face Your Mortality

“Judaism is profoundly optimistic… We look at every day of life as a gift, as an opportunity.

It’s precisely the tragedy of death that gives meaning, purpose, joy … into every second of life. Make it count. Don’t put off the good things you could do today by waiting until tomorrow.

….

Because we believe the soul is eternal… there really is no such thing as death… we are simply reborn into a higher spiritual state but that higher spiritual state is totally based on the goodness we perform in this lower spiritual state.

… know that you can fill your life with meaning, and purpose and goodness and eventually G-d will reward your soul with connection to Him by what you do today.”
