Awareness of Death

gives us enormous energy

to not waste our life,

but to live it

as effectively as possible.


It is possible that you will feel

fear or sadness

when doing this meditation.


In a sense, that is good ...

it shows that you have taken

the ideas seriously and

have contemplated them well.


Also, it is important to get in touch

with how do you feel about death

so that you can work on

being prepared for it

when it happens.


However,

the purpose of the meditation is not

to make you frightened.

Just being afraid of death

is not helpful.


What is helpful is to be afraid

of dying with a

negative state of mind

and a lot of imprints on your mind

from negative actions

you have done in your life.


You need to get a strong sense

of how terrible it would be

to die like that,

so that you live your life wisely,

doing as many positive,

beneficial things as possible.


Also fear arises

because of clinging to the idea

of a permanent self ...


there is no such a thing,

this is a delusion

that just makes us suffer...


we are all one.


If we keep death in mind

in an easy, open way,

this clinging will gradually loosen,

allowing us to be mindful

and make every action positive

and beneficial,

for ourselves

and others.
