Life is the art of dying

"If you scratch beneath the surface, you will find that many of your anxieties, worries, and fears are associated with death and dying. Examining your relationship with death means enlightening your ability to live with grace and dynamic vitality.

If we examine death, we usually ask: What happens when I die? What happens after death? Where did I come from? Will I be reborn? What is the meaning of living and dying?

Buddhists tend to ask a different question. They ask: Who is doing the asking?! This question results in an examination of the ego, which is your accumulated personal and conditioned identification. When you lessen the hold that your ego has on the full experience of your body, heart, and mind, perhaps, you may glimpse your life as an integral part of the fabric of all of existence. The death of the ego is the birth of true living.

Beautiful words by Thai Sheridan and his book, Relax you are Going to Die.
