We don’t like to talk about death in our culture. But contemplating our mortality is the best way to stay aligned and consider what really matters before it’s too late.

In a world where we can be free to be anything we want, the greatest freedom is to be who you truly are, without a mask.
On Halloween, we dress in costume and slip on a mask to assume a persona. So, really, it’s like every other day. As you plan your costume, have you considered who you are behind your mask?
