Death Rehearsal

enlightenmentfrom buddhanet.net

The below is an important exercise. You are encouraged to do it once in a while…

Stop!

Whatever you are doing right now- sense the uneasiness and dissatisfaction  in the abrupt interruption. How do you feel? Disturbed? Turbulent inside? Attachments abound? What can you do to appease your inner storm  in the shortest time possible? Do it-till it takes less and less time. Let go of everything.

The above had been a rehearsal for your possible sudden death. We either face death abruptly rudely or with ample time to prepare for it. It is arrogant to assume we will be dying through the latter way. Nothing-absolutely nothing, can help you except your spiritual practice at the time of your death.
