The 44: Preliminary Contemplation
By Leo Babauta
Before we start training with the Practices, I’d like you to take a couple days to reflect on a few things … to motivate ourselves to take this practice seriously and stick with it.
We’re motivating ourselves to begin again … because we’re always just beginning again, in each moment, after each screw-up, with fresh eyes.
Watch the video below, then look underneath it for some additional instructions …
So the four contemplations are:
- The preciousness of life
- The briefness of life
- The inevitability of suffering
- The awesome power of our actions.
I ask that you simply take a couple minutes to contemplate these things as I shared in the video … today and tomorrow, and preferably for a few moments at the start of each of your 44 Training sessions.
