'live now or die forever' Something in that really struck me. I suspect I am in for a little reflection. Thanks!

Take care.

When I wrote that I had to reflect on it myself. It was a call for me to live now in the present with sharp mindfulness to end the life/death cycle of samsara.

i find dualities about the west/east a little bit problematic. i think this message needs to be sent to everybody. east/west is disintegrating.. great sentiment though.

I agree with you that everyone should listen to this message and not just westerners.
