【Mindfulness of death】- Cannot let go of this and that
Now, the reason why we are not able to let go, is this. Ai-yah, cannot let go of this, cannot let go of that, this is important, that is also important. But the moment you think, “Tonight (I’m) going to die.”, you will be able to let go of everything. Even when told not to give it up, you will not be able to do it. Because all of these things here (this life) will eventually be useless and not able to use there (next life)! Then after you really give it up, you truly bring this (the concept of letting go) to your next life! It is like this. This is something that everyone can understand through experience. In another words, it means that everyone has this ability, not that they don’t! It is a pity and unfortunate that it isn’t put into appropriate good use! Not only it is not put into proper use, it is used to harm oneself. This is where the Dharma is truly valuable. The Dharma will never make us do things that is beyond achievement. The Dharma let you know how to correct the things that you have done wrongly. This is really important. We need to understand this.
