What does death look like when we live within it?

What does death look like when we live within it? It looks like surrender. Instead of feeding on the backlog of our emotional reactions we just drop them; in place of elaboration we are quiet; instead of projecting out our discomforts we become accountable for them; and in place of surmounting a problem we drop the resistance that created the problem in the first place. We choose stillness over noise, non-doing over ambition, openness over contraction, and wonder over certainty. We live within death by surrendering all facets of ourselves to death.
