For today’s meditation, let’s approach things a little differently by examining a comment by Jack London, author of “Call of the Wild, “Sea Wolf,” and many other fine novels and short stories. London correctly observes…
You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.
We’re looking at this rather aggressive comment today because there are so many people who don’t spend a few minutes focusing on their breathing at least once every day because they feel they don’t have time to meditate.
Well, make time, by golly.
As Jack London so correctly observes, you have to go after what you want in life. He says to do it with a club, which is a bit much for me, but I agree that to get what you want in life (even if your goal is to eventually want nothing at all), you have to act.
You won’t get what you want (or what you don’t want) by complaining that you don’t have time.
So get up twenty minutes earlier, go to bed twenty minutes later, or turn off the darn boob tube for twenty minutes every evening and make meditation a daily part of your life!
Do it today!
Seriously, you can make time for meditation, no matter how busy your schedule. Just be creative and carve out 20 to 30 minutes each day to get in touch with yourself.
After a month of daily meditation, I guarantee you’ll join me in considering your meditation minutes the best and most productive time you spend each day.
That’s it. No more harping or yelling from me on this topic for at least six months.
