Following a week of postings about death and dying here are some words from my Master on living. More specifically, where to live.
To sit still within the arising and vanishing, the appearance and disappearance, you and I, the constant coming and going: this is to be within the Great Ocean of Meditation within this human life. When we are dead (as we think of it), presumably we see It in a different way; I have no way of knowing. But I do know this: It is no different in life and in death. What matters is to be within the Great Ocean of Meditation.
Rev. Master Jiyu-Kennett, Roar of the Tigress Vol. II, p 116
Hope you find this as uplifting as I do.
