What Words Will You Say at the Threshold?

Steve Jobs’ last words were, “Oh, wow. Oh, wow. Oh, wow.”
I wonder what he was seeing and feeling and understanding when he said those words?

In her book Words at the Threshold: What We Say As We’re Nearing Death*, Lisa Smartt quotes a hospice nurse, “End-of-life experiences are often positive for people. The things they see, the changes they go through: it is like a journey.”

Smartt then cautions, “However, clearly not everyone journeys gently into that good night, and some die having never made peace or having fully resolved the life issues that allow for tranquil transitions.”

Next she recounts what Kathy Notarino shared with her, “many people die as they lived. If they were always in control and had difficulty showing emotions to family and friends, then they seem to struggle more.”

Do you share your emotions with others? Do you have any unresolved emotional issues?

Learning to work with emotions skillfully is good preparation for a peaceful death. What does a peaceful death look like to you?

When you consider your own death, how do you feel? Have you been present at someone else’s death? What words did they say at the threshold?

What words will you say at the threshold?
