It was about our nature as ‘Cloud’. Cloud can be water, steam, ice,snow. 70% of us is Cloud. The Cloud changes constantly: some of our cells are dying, while other cells are being born. There is no birth, no death, only a continuation.
Buddha says that we must let go of both birth and death, coming and going, rising up, and falling down. We must practice the concentration of emptiness and signlessness. Yes: SIGN-LESS-NESS. IT MEANS LOSING THE FEAR OF BEING OR NOT BEING.
Thai, that is, Thich Nhat Hahn, does not have to

again forever. He is a cloud that never dies.
