A good practice is to ask yourself very sincerely, “Why was I born?” Ask yourself this question in the morning, in the afternoon, and at night… every day.
Why are we born? We are born so that we will not have to be born again.
Death is as close as our breath.
These reflections by Ajahn Chah are from the book, No Ajahn Chah, pp. 4, 7, 10, respectively.
