Alan Watts: Be Absolutely Willing to Die

A lecture that helped me years ago. Don’t put the question of death off til later. It is the most important thing to consider now.

“‘Memento mori.’ ‘Be mindful of death.’ Gurdjieff says in one of his books, that the most important thing for anyone to realize, is that you and all you, every person you see will soon be dead. See, it sounds so gloomy at first, because we’ve devised a culture fundamentally resisting death.”
