Loving-kindness, Compassion, Appreciative Joy, Equanimity~~
Loving-kindness~~wishing beings to be well and happy
Compassion~~wishing beings to be free from suffering
Appreciative Joy~~wishing the wealth and success of beings not be lost
Equanimity~~even mind in facing life, avoiding likes and dislikes
Regard all life’s encounters with loving-kindness, compassion, appreciative joy and equanimity, and thus balance the emotion. When one is emotionally healthy, one can exercise wisdom well and naturally be free from many man-made, avoidable suffering.

Live in the present moment~~
The Buddha says, do not follow the past, and do not have expectation for the future… With insight see each presently arising condition…

Impermanence of Life~~
Life is impermanent, like a dream, like an illusion. Why grasp it and suffer for the grasping?
Life is impermanent. It comprises opportunities which are also impermanent. Let us cherish these opportunities which are so transcient, especially the opportunity of encountering True Dhamma, the opportunity of liberation from suffering.
Life is impermanent. Understanding the impermanence of life, the tests and trials of life become more bearable.

Cause and Effect~~
Do not worry that all the right effort spent in this life will be wasted if we fail to attain liberation before death. The Law of cause and Effect is ever true. As long as we have not attained liberation, our future lives will inherit our kamma of today. The right effort we spend today will uplift our life and thus plant the seed for liberation in future.
One who truly knows how to love oneself will abstain from causes of suffering and cultivate good causes.
Since we know all arising and perishing compounded phenomena have their cause and effect relationship, we should place effort on what good causes that we can cultivate. We can thus change our future by the present cause factor that we are cultivating.
