Death and dying
Painful to let go
You die towards God, not to mom or family. I heard an anecdote of soldiers on their deathbeds after a battle who cried for their moms. This yearning for family and moms is very powerful, but doesn't last. Gandhi wanted the last words on his lips to be God. Without being mechanical, we have to move in that direction, but it is painful to let go of our families. Especially, for some, after it took a long time just to be able to appreciate them.
