Memento Mori

“Fear of death is intimately connected with one’s holding on to a sense of identity, sakkāya. One who has fully realized the truth of not-self thereby goes beyond the fear of death. The medicine required to bring about this cure is surprisingly simple: attend to the possibility that death could happen here and now. It just requires bringing one’s own mortality into present moment awareness, right now.”
