The Four Remembrances

Sep 16, 2020

When we attune to the reality of impermanence and death, we remember what most matters to us. But in daily life we can lose precious swaths of time in a reactive trance, on our way somewhere else, and lost in problem solving, judgment and worry.

This talk reflects on four remembrances or practices—Pausing, Yes to life, Turning toward love, and Resting in awareness—that help us awaken from trance and live true to the loving presence that is our essence.

May death be an advisor.
May the wisdom of impermanence help us to remember to live
this moment, this day, from loving presence.
May we all awaken these hearts and minds.
May all beings everywhere be free.

We hope you’ll enjoy this talk from the archives – 2019-03-27.
