Dying is safe. You are safe. Your loved one is safe. That is the message of all the words here. Know that you are safe. All these words are just to tell your mind that you are safe. This book can speak to you about what dying has to do with living and what living has to do with dying. It reveals that there are levels of awareness, of being, of Spirit, that transcend the personal consciousness we tend to think of as our self. It reveals that dying , remarkably, is a process of natural enlightenment, of finally coming home to our true self. It charts how we gradually open to deeper levels of our being, how we remerge with the Ground of Being from which we once emerged. This book is based on observations and experiences gained after hundreds of hours at the bedsides of those who were dying. It is based on the words the dying people in those beds spoke to me. These observations and experiences and words reveal an apparently universal process of transformation inherent in death iteself: the grace of dying.
