~The Final Pose, by Mark Tulin~ I’m not afraid of death. I practice it every day in my 8 a.m. yoga class, simply lying there without a care in the world, feeling nothing but eternity. I close my eyes with the lights turned low and the sounds of life muted and blurred, knowing that eventually I will have a resting place in the great unknown. It’s a memorable pose. A reminder of what I’ve done, who I’ve met, things I’ve accomplished in my little speck of time. It’s like any other pose I might take, except this one is supine with no heartbeat or breath.
