Can You Do It?

The Buddha told his disciple Ananda to see impermanence, to see death with every breath.

We must know death; we must die in order to live. What does this mean? To die is to come to the end of all our doubts, all our questions, and just be here with the present reality. You can never die tomorrow; you must die now.

Can you do it?

If you can do it, you will know the peace of no more questions.
