From more than a year, I’m doing a small exercise of experiencing death everyday.
Early morning, before leaving my bed I feel each part of my body dying.
I begin with my feet and as I reach the brain, the whole body gets frozen. I can also feel the separation of soul (life energy) from the body. After witnessing my death body for couple of minutes, I imagine the entrance of life energy within me. Then, I slowly instruct each part of my body to come alive. I begin with the brain and as I reach towards feet, the whole body feels fluid, dynamic, refresh and grateful.
This small exercise has taken me closer to life. This small activity has raised the level of compassion and sensitiveness (within me) towards every living entity.
Now, I don’t get quickly irritated by the mosquito bite. I walk consciously, to protect ants’kingdom. If I can’t help others, I silently pray for them. If I can’t be with those who need me, I send them strong loving and healing vibrations. If my parents say something which I don’t agree, instead of showing strong disagreement, I try to understand their love and concern towards me.
Witnessing death everyday has inspired me towards body fitness and towards to travel ing light while alive (lighter than the speed of light :P).
Remembering death has also helped me to drop off unnecessary baggage of issues and shifted me towards love and laughter.
And this is what matters!
