“People fear it before they get into it, but when they get into the death process, there is a certain comfortableness in it. The body-mind-complex knows what to do. The body-mind-complex is growing now and doing its thing now and you do not necessarily know altogether about it, but it knows. You are not going to die, the body-mind-complex is going to die someday and it knows how to do it. The body-mind-complex knows exactly how to do it. And all that equipment will come into place when your time comes to pass on. All of sudden, the equipment is all there. All that capability is right there. That is the least of it—that is no big deal.
“Knowing how to live, knowing how to surrender while alive, knowing how to transcend yourself—that is the difficult part. When the death time comes, you do not know necessarily, but the body-mind-complex knows exactly how to do it and is completely capable of it. Yes, completely capable. So death is no big deal. Living is the big deal. Transcending egoity while you are here, while you are alive, that is the big deal. Volunteering for it, being willing to do the ego-transcending work, dealing with yourself. That is it.” – Adi Da Samraj
