Death proceeds new life! The paradox is that death is what brings life. It always has, and it always will. Just look at how nature operates. A seed goes into the ground and dies so that new life may emerge as a fruit-bearing plant. A woman gives up her body being her own and allows a new creation to be birthed within her. Literally taking over her internal space. There are even some animals that die shortly after fertilizing the egg or giving birth. And the natural cycle of forests is that while wildfires destroy whole landscapes, they fertilize the new life of growing trees. Death proceeds new life!
