Worldly dharma is the dynamic of psychology: the control of one’s appetites, the resistance to the poisons of hatred, anger, greed, lust, and jealousy. As an act of will we filter these poisons out of our thoughts and behavior because if we give rise to them they manifest in our life as our life. In their place we give rise to the higher angels of love, kindness, generosity, and patience, and these become the dominant forces of our life.
Our heart, mind, and being are perfect recorders; every single thought, every single feeling, every single action is recorded within us as subtle bits of samskaric data in the energy channels of the ida, pingala, and sushumna.
What they say about death is true. At the moment of death your entire life passes before you. The dynamic of death tears away all the buffers of the personal identity and the raw energy of everything stored inside you manifests within your mind stream with incredible intensity. As we live, so shall we die.
