“Fear is death, fear is sin, fear is hell, fear is unrighteousness, and fear is wrong life. All the negative thoughts and ideas that are in the world have proceeded from this evil spirit of fear.” Swami Vivekananda
“In brief, without being mindful of death, whatever Dharma practices you take up will be merely superficial.” Milarepa
You return our bodies to the dust
and snuff out our lives like a candleflame.
You hurry us away; we vanish
as suddenly as the grass:
in the morning it shoots up and flourishes,
in the evening it wilts and dies.
For our life dissolves like a vision
and fades into air like a cloud.
“My identity is not merely the sum total of the many dimensions of my personality. At its most transparent, it is the integration of all I am with all everyone and everything is, and this integrated whole is held by a mystery of Generous Love. As I allow myself to feel the impact of this shift, I realize that I do not die when I die.”
“Many people die at twenty five and aren’t buried until they are seventy five.” Benjamin Franklin
