Remembering death is one of the laws of spirituality. As we remember death craving subsides and serenity dawns. There is a difference between knowing death as a fact and consciously reminding oneself of it.Remembrance of death immediately brings about a shift in awareness. Priorities change and things which seemed very important do not seem so and something that you thought was ok to postpone may seem like the most urgent and important thing to do!

Intelligent are those who learn from their own experience and wise are those who learn from others experience. “Tuesdays with Morrie “ is a beautiful book written by Mitch Albom, who has narrated his own entire experience about the time he spent with his favorite university teacher Morrie who knew that he is going to die in a few months.
The conversations they have had are full of wisdom and the relationship they share is really beautiful. I started reading this book as I boarded the flight back home to Bangalore from Oslo. I just couldn’t stop till I finished it.


Love
Rashmin.

    Am halfway through the book … thanks to the Dec 25 holiday …

    The book has the feel of a movie edited in a captivating manner. The sequence of events, the frequent flash-backs to school days with Morrie, the flow and the informal use of language … all of these give a dramatic feel. Once you start reading, the book takes you over and you drift. It does not bore you even a wee bit as it connects instantly to the reader in a very human manner. Mitch does not try to talk from another world or from a different plane. He is very much as vulnerable as any other person – the difference being that he is at comfort with his personal vulnerabilities more than many others.

    The most poignant moment is when Morrie is asked in an interview aired on TV: “Morrie, your mother passed away seventy years ago. You still feel the pain?” To this, Morrie replies, “You bet.” This brings out the fact that while most of us “block” our minds of past unpleasant experiences, Morrie was at ease with feeling grief. This is being human and accepting yourself as a human.
