Memento Mori is remembering that one day you will die.
You can choose to face this fact with fear and dread, or you can use this knowledge to experience every moment that you have as a precious gift. The choice is yours. Over centuries, and in many cultures and philosophies; from the Stoics of Ancient Greece and Rome to the Samurai, this wisdom has enabled people to focus on what is truly important to them. Acknowledging that you are mortal can allow you to experience a true sense of freedom and purpose.
This is not a discovery. It’s a rediscovery.
It’s easy to forget. Particularly with the events of the last few months. So why not carry a personal reminder on your keyring where it is visible?
