The 4 Thoughts That Turn the Mind Toward Spiritual Practice

Reminders on my birthday from Pema Chodron

1. Maintain an awareness of the preciousness of human life. This cultivates gratitude.

2. Be aware of the reality that life ends. This cultivates insight into impermanence.

3. That whatever you do has consequences. Karma

4. That self-importance and getting caught up thinking about how good or bad you are does not bring happiness
