"Angels Walk Among Us" as written by and Daniel Cavanagh....
(Only you can heal your life
Only you can heal inside)

It must have been an angel
who counted out the time
Yes, it must have been an angel
who raised a knowing smile
And I just couldn't reach you
no matter how I tried
No, I just couldn't reach you,
so instead I ran to hide

(Only you can heal your life
Only you can heal inside)

Mother, can you hear me?
Can you tell me, are you there?
Father, can you help me?
‘Cause I know that you care
And I don't have to fight it anymore
For all those years we were dreaming
No, I don't have to worry anymore,
‘cause I found my belief in...

Mother, can you hear me?
Can you tell me, are you there?
Father, can you help me?
‘Cause I know that you care

(Only you can heal your life
Only you can heal inside
Heal inside)

    This is as good as I could sum up what he is saying.


    One has to come to terms with one’s own mortality. And you can't really help people who are having problems with mortality, if you've got problems of your own. So you have to begin to sort things out, and I thought I had sorted things out until I saw this excerpt from this book, of certainty I shall remember what it said: “Life is not the opposite of death. Death is the opposite of birth. Life is eternal.” And I thought that it’s the most profound words I have ever heard about that issue and it really put me in peace. [I felt it was a wonderful story.] And that’s it. What else is there to say? Heh.
    Life is eternal. Surely the opposite of life is not death, but life is eternal. There is no opposite.
    And so, what happens is, I suppose, [and isn’t this a raging (or outrageous)] state of pure consciousness, stillness and silence? Yeah, what we are looking for now, we are searching for and we have been searching for, now we've become closer to it and now we know it's already there, is there for ever to seek, it’s there, and it's going be there, all the time, forevermore.

    If anyone should not understand the brackets this is approximately what they mean: [] = not 100% sure; () = some guess.

    I tried to find where it comes from and found out that the quotation is from Eckhart Tolle’s book called “The Power of Now”.

    Life is not the opposite of death.
    Birth is the opposite of death.
    Life has no opposite.
    Life is eternal.

    - (*Eckhart Tolle (born February 16, 1948) is a German/ Canadian spiritual teacher, motivational speaker, and writer.) * en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…


    I found this excerpt on this website: peacefulrivers.homestead.com/…
    It’s from The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle:

    When you walk through a forest that has not been tamed and interfered with by man, you will see not only abundant life all around you, but you will also encounter fallen trees and decaying trunks, rotting leaves and decomposing matter at every step. Wherever you look, you will find death as well as life.
    Upon closer scrutiny, however, you will discover that the decomposing tree trunk and rotting leaves not only give birth to new life, but are full of life themselves. Microorganisms are at work. Molecules are rearranging themselves. So death isn't to be found anywhere. There is only the metamorphosis of life forms. What can you learn from this?

    Death is not the opposite of life. Life has no opposite. The opposite of death is birth. Life is eternal.
