The valley of the shadows of death is believed to be a lonely and desolate place. The place in which suffering and torment exists. A valley in which people believe they are alone in. They are not. You are only alone in your belief and by your own choice.
It may be true that each person is truly alone in their suffering. But, it doesn't have to be this way. Your suffering does not have to be a lonely venture on your part. You are not protecting anyone by omitting caring and compassionate family and friends from your life. By reaching out to others who have similar sufferings or even different sufferings. All of you can lift one another up from the quicksand in the valley of the shadows of death. Those who are healthy and who have freely chosen to serve you doing this trial of yours. Because, a witness to your struggle, your wisdom, your triumph and the final demise of the physical body. All of the possibilities there in may occur.
No matter what journey you finally take. The shadows of death may be quite fearful but only until that final moment your physical body expires. Then as your spirit is freed you will begin to realize the continuation. It won't really matter if while residing in physical form you believed that you would only become fertilizer as your only means for perpetuation in the physical life cycle.
While in your suffering. To show mercy, to express love, to show gratitude, to reveal your weakness. Is all important lessons for all to witness. Especially, those who would become the celebrants of your life. Their is great honor and respect in your struggle. So go forth in your life and live it as best you can even if your time here in the physical is short.
Do not be like the selfish and unwise. Who forgets all whom they have loved to go out and burn the candle at both ends. To do so reveals who you always were to everyone who has ever known you. Shame, dishonor and disrespect will come to you as full revelation of your out come is instantly known in your demise. This is truth. When you become fully aware in spirit. You shall know all of those things which cannot be fully contained within the human brain.
You selfish physical final acts may even be a cause to the eventual extinction to your physical blood lines and to be forgotten in the sands of time. In which no one will ever remember.
Do not be like the selfish old dog. Who wonders off to die alone. protecting those whom they love form grief. What actually happens is a great sadness envelopes them as they are unable to express their love and prayers. They are unable to properly take car of your body with respect and honor.
