The Imminence of Death

Death is a habit of the body and one does not know when we will be over taken by death. However one believes and acts as though one is going to live forever. This is nothing but stupidity. The people that you see today there is no guarantee that you will see them tomorrow. It is this uncertainty that is the HALLMARK OF LIFE.

Fools will carry on with LIFE-AS-USUAL attitude. But the HUMBLE YOGI knows that DEATH IS NOT THE END and that is is only a SMALL PAUSE in the CYCLE OF LIFE that has started since the BEGINNING OF LIFE. He therefore wants to go beyond death and does all things to ensure that it happens thereby wasting no time. He knows that death is nothing but soul  changing its body which is beautifully described in Bhagavad Gita as given below:

वासांसि जीर्णानि यथा विहाय नवानि गृह्णाति नरोऽपराणि।
तथा शरीराणि विहाय जीर्णान्यन्यानि संयाति नवानि देही।।
As a person puts on new garments, giving up old ones, similarly, the “soul” accepts new material bodies, giving up the old and useless ones.

A simple practice which could help you in the direction of spirituality is: WHEN YOU BEHAVE WITH PEOPLE BEHAVE AS IF YOU ARE SEEING HIM FOR THE LAST TIME. You will never see the person again in life. With such an attitude people will behave in the loving way possible because you will never get chance to repent for wrong doing again.

So please dont waste time in FLIRTING WITH SENSE OBJECTS instead work on your sadhana as no one knows when death would catch up with you.
