forgotten. The Bible records how open and unashamed was the expression of sorrow on the part of Abraham and Jacob and David. It is unfortunate that in our time the expression of honest emotion has become taboo. Let us understand that the unrepressed experience of pain somehow has a curative function and that any evasive detour around normal sorrow will bring us later to a tragic abyss.
Armed with such knowledge, if we are courageous and resolute we can live as our lost loved ones would wish us to live-not empty, morose, self-centered and self-pitying but as brave and undismayed servants of the greater life.
It is not often that we are brave enough to come face to face with the thought of our own mortality. Yet man is not free in life unless he is also free from the fear of death.
As far as our own deaths are concerned, we should remember what science teaches about the process of dying. We needlessly frighten ourselves with anticipated horrors which never come to pass. As Sir William Osler put it, "In my wide clinical experience, most human beings die really without pain or fear. There is as much oblivion about the last hours as about the first."
No, death is not the enemy of life but its friend, for it is the knowledge that our years are limited which makes them so precious. Plato was right when he declared that infinite life on this earth would not be desirable, for a never-ending existence would be without heights or depths, without challenge or achievement. It is profoundly true that the joy of our striving and the zest of our aspirations would vanish if earthly immortality were our lot.
At the same time, we dare not ignore the hunger in the human heart for some kind of existence beyond this narrow span of life. There is an almost universal feeling that God could not shut the door completely upon our slowly developed talents-that there must be realms where we can use the powers achieved here. And one should not lightly dismiss the thoughts of the philosophers who insist that there is nothing inherently impossible about life in undreamed dimensions; that just as infrared rays are invisible to our eyes, so a
