“Death is terrible, but it is terrible only from our own personal, limited viewpoint, which is attached to certain forms.
Let us, then, distance ourselves from our preference for certain forms that are close to our hearts, and try to see things from a place where everything is equally close to us, equally loved by us.
Or, in more precise words, let us try to see things from the perspective of the Creator, with Godly eyes.”
–Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
