Samsara is desire, desire is samsara.

Desire creates the dream and propagates it.

At the last moment of being in this body

all dormant tendencies, fears, and anxieties of the dream

will manifest before you.

The one that you are most interested in,

the dearest thought that you see

in this stream of mental events,

will be your next birth!

Any footprints in your memory will be your next birth.

At this moment remember only Self.

Then when the heart stops,

the Eternal Heart will take over.

So don’t worry:

When death comes, go laughing!

There is only one way to avoid death.

Know thy Self, Now.
