A big part of Buddhist philosophy is appreciating that we all die.
And we don’t know when.
Could happen now. Or later. Or much, much later.
Who can say?
I’m pretty sure that for most people I know, this is a thought, a discussion, a realization, better left unsaid.
So let’s not say much.
I just came across a post on Facebook from the Charter for Compassion that I have always loved:
“I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good, therefore, that I can do or any kindness I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it for I shall not pass this way again.”
So. I suppose.
All we need to reflect on.
Is how we can.
Be kind today.
