"I think of the dying" replied the Old Farmer.
The Young Monk pondered for a moment. "But how can that help?"
The Old Farmer smiled. "Whenever one speaks to the dying, they talk only of three things: the great considerations of life, their loved ones, or how their body feels. I use this as a screen by which I judge all events that occur to me: if it is not one of those issues, it is hardly worthy becoming exercised about. After all, it is not something I will think of then."
Application: Thinking of dying enables living.
