You have been trained since infancy to direct your attention to what is temporary. Had anyone before revealed the Permanent to you, there would be no need to sit with Wu Hsin.
Most people don’t sit because they are afraid of what is revealed.
The individuals fear that they will lose their individuality, their identity. One could say that the love of Being is not yet greater than the love of being somebody … or it could be said that the fear of the not yet known is far greater than the distaste for the known.
Either way, “I’ll pay any price” is suddenly shown to be a hollow offer.
When you become clear that you are not this body, but that it is your instrument, then worries about death dissolve.
In essence, death dies.
