Always remember – that when there are sensations in the body, keep an eye on how the mind is feeling towards them. Because as we get older, the body is not going to get better; it will decay, but we can keep the mind in good shape.
So, we want to prepare the mind to face this decaying body with the right attitude and prepare for death.
If we see even our bodily pains, aches and all that as nature as well, it is freeing for the mind; we will feel ready to die, to face death peacefully. Otherwise, when the mind is not prepared, we will resist death and be in turmoil.
So, it is important to learn to view that everything that happens in the mind and body in a wise perspective – to see it as a process and phenomenon and not that it is bad; it’s just a natural process.
