Anyone can die at anytime and anyplace. That’s a fact. Nothing that we think we are, do, feel, or have has any essence, substance, stability, or solidity when it all melts away. All the somethings in and around us with which we occupy ourselves with from morning to night, in a moment are nothing to us if we die. When we die, they will dissolve our tight grasp, be forgotten in our minds, lost in our hands, fallen into a numbness out of our mind and body.
Once we become aware to the ever present possibility of death, we become liberated. We realize that we are essentially free at all times and in all situations.
We realize that all our compulsion and all her stuff and dollar wanting is based on the illusion of continuation, I’ve been during substance, of things defining who we are.
Becoming CONSTANTLY AWARE that this too can go. At all times, this can go. We find peace. We become completely immersed in freedom. We know death, we know life, we know Joy, we know suffering, we know impermanence, we know interconnectedness, we know illusion, we know peace all at once.
Our participation in this thing we call “reality” becomes totally voluntary.
Everything is EMPTY and FULL all at once. Why wait for death to teach us all it has to offer? Let us learn to embrace the one certain thing we all know, now, in our primes.
