Black Elk on death – Black Elk y la muerte


 
It is good to have a reminder of death before us, for it helps us to understand the impermanence of life on this earth, and this understanding may aid us in preparing for our own death. He who is well prepared is he who knows that he is nothing compared with Wakan-Tanka, who is everything; then he knows that world which is real.

………………………………………….

Es bueno tener un recordatorio de la muerte delante de nosotros, pues nos ayuda a entender la impermanencia de la vida en esta tierra, y esta comprensión puede ayudarnos a estar preparados para nuestra propia muerte. El que está preparado es el que sabe que él no es nada en comparación con Wakan-Tanka, que es todo; es entonces que él conoce el mundo real.

-Black Elk
