Freedom by Meditating On Death

Generally speaking, the Way of the warrior is resolute acceptance of death.

Miyamoto Musashi

It sounds grim. Who would want to live like that?

But the warrior is the stoic. He is shaken by nothing. He imposes his will on his mind and his life until the end.

Better to be a warrior in a garden than a flower in a war.

Meditate on your own death if you haven’t before.

Death is impermanence, which is freeing. Everyone we love, everything we know, and everything we are is impermanent. Now you are free.
