Day 245, Evening

Today’s evening meditation is available below in audio and script formats. The audio version is also available for free download on the player.


When on the bridge, the pilgrim says Rama, Rama,

but afterwards, it’s Kama, Kama.

—Hindu proverb


Pilgrims traveling in the Himalayas sometimes must cross deep ravines on rope bridges. While on the bridge, which is swinging like a pendulum, everyone says Rama, Rama, Rama, “Lord, Lord, Lord,” with as much devotion as he or she can muster. But as soon as the first step is taken on terra firma, it is likely to be kama, kama, kama, “Pleasure, Pleasure, Pleasure.”

When we are in the middle of turmoil we are very responsive to; but as soon as our health is good, our income is steady, and pleasures are flowing smoothly, we forget. 

The Lord is a good psychologist: he knows the way our minds run. Turmoil can be his way of tapping us on the shoulder and saying, “Don’t forget me.”(WLB)


As your day draws to a close, spend a few moments in silence and stillness.
