Right now, every emergency room in the world is filled with people who had other plans for today. Some will walk out in a few hours feeling better. Others will start a long process of healing. A few will die.

Is this when we start to pray? Is this when we try to find our center, our sense of peace amid the storm? It’s difficult to start swimming lessons in a hurricane.

If you or someone you love are in an emergency room right now, I pray that you have a meditation and spiritual practice because it is your lifeline to clarity, strength and hope. If you and your loved ones are doing well right now, I implore you to take time today to start, restore or strengthen your meditation and spiritual practice.

Ask your self, am I donating an appropriate amount of time to this aspect of my life? Am I fully prepared for the inevitable crisis in my life or the life of my loved ones? Am I walking my talk? Am I really doing it or merely planning to do it?

When it is calm and sunny, it is the best time to learn to swim. Write yourself a reminder to start today. Words are a much more benevolent reminder than tears.
