Last week we discussed the ‘three doors’ steps at the end of the standard meditation
In the coming week I look at the ‘Five Remembrances’
What are they you ask?
Try reading them, they are quite shocking…
I am subject to aging.
There is no way to avoid aging.
I am subject to ill health.
There is no way to avoid illness.
I am going to die.
There is no way to avoid death.
Everyone and everything that I love will change,
and I will be separated from them.
My only true possessions are my actions,
and I cannot escape their consequences.
If you thought reading them was OK, say them our loud or if you are really brave say them to yourself in the mirror.
It will surprise you.
