Everything transitions from one form to another eventually. That is the nature of nature. Leaves become fertilizer. Pine cones "fall" and drop seeds that take to the fertile soil below. New trees then rise. So why would anything that transitions from one form to another be perceived as a death? Change the perception of death to one of transitional habit and you will be in the rhythm of nature's truth. Then you will realize that your life as you know it is actually JUST the beginning of the new frontier for your soul.
