Singer George Michael has died at the age of 53, his publicist has said.

The star, who launched his career with Wham! in the 1980s and continued his success as a solo performer, is said to have "passed away peacefully at home" in Goring, Oxfordshire.

Thames Valley Police say they are treating the death as unexplained but there were no suspicious circumstances.

His former Wham! bandmate Andrew Ridgeley said he was "heartbroken at the loss of my beloved friend".

    It's a thing called limited lifespan. Everything that is alive will pass away, including you.

    As they say in Buddhism "Nothing is permanent" -  whether it be a rock, a river or a blade of grass.  Buddhism is said not to be a religion, rather a way of life.

    The soul is the carrier of true life we just need to believe in our creator.
    The outer body is what ages and falls prey to disease.

    Buddhism and Hinduism share the doctrine of Anicca or Anitya, that is "nothing lasts, everything is in constant state of change"; however, they disagree on the Anatta doctrine, that is whether soul exists or not. ... The Nicca (permanent) in Buddhism is anatta (non-soul), the Nitya in Hinduism is atman (soul).

    Yes, and i really meant to answer the question of where is a safe space, literally. Find your nearest location on the directory http://www.dhamma.org/en-US/locations/directory and go for 10 days, it doesn't cost a penny (registered charity organisation)

    Thanks anon , have been to something similar in past.  Other than retreats and maybe even then, there is no such thing as a safe space on this earth. All we can do is have the faith which gives us strength, in our creator, whatever name we may know Him by depending on where we were born on this earth.

    Thanks for posting that anon.  I'll definitely view some more of his work.

    You know, they say dreams are real only as long as they last.
    Couldn't you say the same thing about life?
