November is the month dedicated by The Roman Catholic Church to the souls or the death, especially those who are in Purgatory.
Death for some people is seen as something scary and awful. Many or maybe most of us don't feel ready for the death. People are not ready to leave their wealth, their family, and also their unfinished busines at the moment. In this modern days, humans are dazzled and addicted to technology which has been developed incredibly fast, so that the existence of God would be placed on the second priority. Human character and morale show further slump so that the conscience towards things happening around doesn't become sensitive anymore. Egoism with all of its neccessity has been a tradition which ruins human's existence as a social creature directly.
Therefore, when humans face the reality of being sick and death, they have just been aware to all of the things related to the God, their Creator. Regret is not a solution when things have happened. Therefore, we need to prepare our life by doing good deeds sincerely without considering religion, background, and racial differences. When we develop and explore our love to glorify God, peaceful life won't be far away from us, even when we face death. It would be great to be able to prepare for our death, so that it is not going to be something scary and awful, but it is a great moment to meet our Creator. Have you been preparing your death?
