When Death Comes, Be Ready
“Let your heart be at peace.
Watch the turmoil of beings
but contemplate their return.
“If you don’t realize the source,
you stumble in confusion and sorrow.
When you realize where you come from,
you naturally become tolerant,
kindhearted as a grandmother,
dignified as a king.
“Immersed in the wonder of the Tao,
you can deal with whatever life brings you,
And when death comes, you are ready.”
