A wise man mulling over a near brush with death and how it made him realise how precious life is....
Mon 7th Aug 2017
I have great respect for the psychotherapist Abraham Maslow and I recently came across these words written by him. He wrote them, not long after he had experienced a near-fatal heart attack.
"The confrontation with death - and the reprieve from it - makes everything look so precious, so sacred, so beautiful that I feel more strongly than ever the impulse to love it, to embrace it, and to let myself be overwhelmed by it. My river has never looked so beautiful...Death, and its ever-present possibility, makes love, passionate love, more possible."
