How Do You Live Your Dash?

It means to spend each day with passion and purpose… and to inspire others by living a life of joy, compassion, and kindness. I read of a man who stood to speak at the funeral of a friend. He referred to the dates on the tombstone from the beginning… to the end. He noted that first came the date of birth and spoke of the following date with tears, but he said what mattered most of all was the dash between those years. For that dash represents all the time they spent alive on earth and now only those who loved them know what that little line is worth. For it matters not, how much we own, the cars… the house… the cash. What matters is how we live and love and how we spend our dash.

This one makes you think quite a bit. My father just emailed me a scanned copy of this, and it really makes you think…. I read of a man who stood to speak At the funeral of a friend. He referred to the dates on her tombstone From the beginning….. For that dash represents all the time That she spent alive on this earth… And now only those who loved her Know what that little line is worth.

What is ‘the Dash’?

Prem Rawat often mentioned death in his speeches especially post and he nearly always mentioned that "people" didn't like him talking about death though only a handful of people bother to listen to his speeches and most of them consider him to be divine or something similar so who are these people? He invariably talks slightingly of normal humans ie those who who don't know or care about him and he uses the dash between birth and death dates on tombstones regularly to show the meaninglessness of the lives of people who don't accept him as their Master. He says birth and death are the only two most important things that happen in the life of a person who doesn't worship him because only he makes life life and without him your little life is just a little dash. You know you look at graveyards and there are some graveyards where there are thousands of people buried and what have they done in their lives? What have they accomplished and what have they gained? They came in this world, they lived their lives, their little, their little portraits just went with them. What is there left of it to show but just a headstone.
