Death, the Ultimate Context

https://youtu.be/8Xy01jkEsnQ

I really found this talk useful and it is helping me to reframe the way I practice. Whether on the so-called protective setting of formal meditation or off the cushion in the myriad postures of life, the inevitability and closeness of death can help to liberate is from defilement. In fact, it is only by truly understanding that all of the aggregate are subject to death and that everything must be relinquished that we can free ourselves. Any other approach is simply self-delusion and only makes our predicament worse.
