Is life preparing us for death?
    #3272962 - 10/24/04 10:07 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Sometimes I get this feeling that life is preparing us for death. I mean this in a positive way.

Recognizing the false as false, which is mainly an inner thing?to recognize false identifications, to recognize the mental noise, and what had been identification with mental images as a "me" entity, to be false. That is beautiful, that recognition. And then action may arise out of the recognition of the false, and perhaps you can see the false reflected in your life circumstances and you may then leave those behind?or not. But the recognition and relinquishment of all that is false and illusory is primarily an inner one.

To the Buddha, this recognition came because he was already an adult when he suddenly realized that humans die and become ill and grow old. And that was so powerful that he looked within and said that everything is meaningless if that's all there is.

Death is a posotive thing. We are dying every second and bits n peaces are droping dead and sluffing of us every moment. You see animals killing animals to survive, we see the circle of life revolving round and round constantly. When we realise death is imenent and welcome at some point on in my life there is then no feering death imo.

Life is not the process of preparation, only the opportunity.

life is just a lightning bolt in the void.
it appears and then disappears.
that's all there ever was.
why?
why not?

tag
you're it.

Nobody knows for certain until they get there.  Live like there's no tomorrow, but don't forget that there is.  Because that's when you'll pay for tonight. :hellfire:

I think you can't really relize something until you've lost it or about to lose it so dying in that sense is actually realivation on the fact that you're living. I kinda look forward to what will happen when I die, don't take that as me wanting to rush into things though.
