Just a quick entry today.

The meditation today was refuge practice. I regenerated my recognition that my life will definitely end, that that when it does, I will definitely have to face suffering. I focused on this for a while.

I then thought about refuge practice. If I go sincerely for refuge to Buddha, Dharma and Sangha, remembering their good qualities and the differences between them, I can avoid the horrible fate of rebirth in the lower realms. It felt like the best news ever, and I felt sincere joy at the thought that I do not have to endure the sufferings of the lower realms.

I focused on this for the rest of the meditation.
