Death often finds itself helpless when standing infort of our hope of reuniting ourselves with our deceased loved ones. Even if the reunion was in another form and in another world.

Mountains should be climbed with as little effort as possible and without desire. The reality of your own nature should determine the speed. If you become restless, speed up. If you become winded, slow down. You climb the mountain in an equilibrium between restlessness and exhaustion. Then, when you’re no longer thinking a head, each footstep isn’t just a means to an end but a unique event in itself. This leaf has jagged edges. This rock looks loose. From this place the snow is less visible, even though closer. These are things you should notice anyway. To live only for some future goal is shallow. It’s the sides of the mountain which sustains life, not the top. Here’s where things grow.
— Robert M. Pirsig- Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance (p. 257 - 258)
