The truth about your death

Do you know "Shoji ichinyo?"

"Shoji" means "life and death"
You may think that these are opposite words, however this is not true.

"Ichinyo" means that "like one"
Basically, it means that the two are inseparable.

Similarly, no matter how thin a paper is, there is always a front and a back.
Like this, life and death are inseparable.

When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: "If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you'll most certainly be right." It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: "If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?" And whenever the answer has been "No" for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.
Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything ― all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose.

Also in the scrolls, it talks about the secret of success. Two thousand years ago, a poor Arabian boy who read this scroll became the world's biggest salesman.

Shoji ichihyo

Let's compare life and death to a kitchen and a bathroom.
A kitchen is a lively, fun and pleasant place.
A bathroom is dark, boring and unpleasant place.

However, if you say
"I don't like a bathrooms I will make a house without any bathroom,"
you will be in trouble when food fills up in your stomach.

Therefore, since there is on assuring bathroom, you will be able to enjoy the kitchen.
Like this, do you think about only how to live lively, fun and pleasant?
For example, sports, exam, travel, you think about how to live.

The other hand, you don't think about death because it is dark, boring and unpleasant.
But we must definitely die.

"Look and Solve the biggest problem of your death as fast as you can."

"Shoji ichinyo" means that,
when you become this whenever you die, you will never regret your life, you are filled with joy, rejoicing that you were born human, and live in never-ending bliss.

"Life and death are inseparable" means that,
you must think about your death when thinking about your life.
you must look at your death when looking at your life.
you must solve about your death when solving about your life.

In order to live lively and happily, you must solve the problem of the death approaching.
In order for the present to be bright, you must solve the problem of your death.
This is taught in Buddhism.
