INNERVIEWS: Dannion Brinkley (1999)
Why are we afraid of death? Can we become comfortable with the concept of death? Dannion Brinkley, author of At Peace in the Light, discusses how to overcome the fear of death and, therefore, the fear of living. As long as we are living in the shadow of fear of death, our ability to live is hindered.
We are all having near-death experiences, because we don't know what life truly is unless we have nearly died. As he puts it, death is only a part of living and you haven't really lived until you can truly appreciate life. Using spirituality and religion as a base, he explains techniques on how to embrace death and life, and help others to learn how to die. He shares many thoughts in this humorous, but powerful talk on life and death.
