The Buddha said:
This existence of ours is as transient as autumn clouds
To watch the birth and death of beings is like looking at the movements of a dance.
A lifetime is like a flash of lightning in the sky,
Rushing by, like a torrent down a steep mountain.

THE ONLY THING WE REALLY HAVE IS NOWNESS, IS NOW.

What the caterpillar perceives as the end, to the butterfly is just the beginning.

Prepare to Die!!



This is something Alan did not long before he died. He loved 3D arts: comics, manga, digital sculpture, animation, you name it! Alan also liked the idea of this type of reminders; remembering death was one of his daily Buddhist practices.

If you're curious and want to find out more about this topic, the book Preparing for Death in Buddhism can be read online. Just click on the title.
