"Soon we all will die, our hopes and fears will be irrelevant...We project our greatest fears onto death and make every effort to ignore it...At death we lose everything we thought was real. Unless we can let go of all that we cherished in life...all our fear and yearning will drag us into yet another painful reality...While we are living, the elements of earth, water, fire and air together support and condition our consciousness and perceptions. Death occurs when this is no longer the case. Now, without the screens and filters of daily life, mind itself can be seen directly..."
Bardo Thodol (The Tibetan Book Of The Dead)
Narrated By Leonard Cohen
