A contemplation for today

I recently got a book of spiritual contemplations for each day of the year. Periodically I'd like to share what that day's reflections are with you. Here is what October 6th says. My name is in italics; you replace it with yours.

That which is not, came.
That which came must go.
Amy, remain calm and steady
in the midst of all that comes and goes.

What is inevitable must happen.
You cannot prevent it.
Amy, recognize the inevitable.
Remain tranquil in yourself.

This brief life passes quickly
and in the end one dies.
Now is the time, Amy,
to meditate on the Self.
