“If we really think that this life is a ‘wandering to find home,’, why should we not look forward to the arrival?” — C.S. Lewis
When we place the ashes of a loved one into an urn, our world changes forever. Everything is altered by the reality of memento mori, it humbles us all. The gift of facing this reality is that it can empower us to live more fully.
When you place a loved one in one of GetUrns’ classic marble urns for ashes, you are honoring your beloved and sharing this awareness. In addition to healing from the huge grief of loss, placing an elegant marble urn in your home can help overcome taboos about our departure from this world. We can relax some of our subconscious fears about this mysterious and inevitable part of life.
Some people even choose their own marble urn prior to their passing, similar to purchasing a burial plot, and why not? In addition to relieving your family of this task, meditating on your own urn can be liberating!
