Even though I theoretically understand that I may die, but this understanding remains as a thing I know in my brain, but unless I deliberately think about it this thing does not even come to my mind. How to deepen this understanding? Moreover, the urge to know what is the ultimate truth does not even come to my mind. Even when I theoretically think that I may die, then the next thought comes as so what - even question like where I will go after my death does not come to my mind. So how was it that Siddhartha saw one dead body in his life and it moved him internally so deeply that he decided to renounce everything in his life by leaving his palace and going alone to a forest to become a saint.
So what to do to deepen this understanding of death and impermanence in my life? Also how to arise the determination to put the effort needed to realize ultimate truth? Thanks.
