What is the use in planning a well when the house is on fire? Where is the time to dig it now? When will water become available? When can you extinguish the fire? If, at the very start, a well was ready, how helpful it would be on such critical occasions! Beginning to contemplate on God during the last moments is like beginning to dig the well when the house is on fire. Therefore if right now, you contemplate on God, off and on, it will stand you in good stead when the end approaches. Start today the spiritual discipline that has to be done tomorrow! Start now the spiritual discipline that has to be done today! One doesn’t know what is in store the next moment; therefore, there should be no delay in engaging oneself in the spiritual practice that has to be done. Physical stamina is also necessary for this spiritual practice, so the body has to be tended, though overtending causes damage. To the degree that is essential, it should be looked after with great care. (Prema Vahini, Ch 41)
