That which was not, came.
That which came must go.
Muktananda, remain calm and steady
in the midst of all that comes and goes.
What is inevitable must happen.
You cannot prevent it.
Muktananda, recognize the inevitable.
Remain tranquil in yourself.
This brief life passes quickly
and in the end one dies.
Now is the time, Muktananda,
to meditate on the Self.
