Think about death and impermanence for a long time

Think about death and impermanence for a long time.

Once you are certain that you are going to die, you will no longer find it hard to put aside harmful actions, nor difficult to do what is right.

After that, meditate for a long time on love and compassion.

Once love fills your heart you will no longer find it hard to act for the benefit of others.

Then meditate for a long time on emptiness, the natural state of all phenomena. Once you fully understand emptiness, you will no longer find it hard to dispel all your delusions.

  2. Fantastic advice, but it’s so easy to say, but to do it is another story. Lou you are always very thought provoking.
