Be prepared for anything to happen.
The master follows the saying:
“Live each day like it will be the last,
For one day you will be right.”
When you accept that you will die,
You can truly begin to live.
Settle your affairs at the end of each day.
Tie up your loose ends before bed each night.
Keep your life in order
So you do not leave a mess behind.
The sage is ready for death,
As he is ready for retiring to bed.
He looks back on his life
Like a good day of work.
