Times of crisis can be a test of our faith. The commonest mistake at such a time can be to change our practice either out of doubt or thinking that a new situation needs something different. Actually for a good practitioner the most relevant practice, the contemplation of the uncertainty of life, should be business-as-usual. If not then to keep going with whatever practice we have can be the best way to keep on a steady track.
Times of crisis can also be when we really want to believe in something. It is good to acknowledge this and to consciously hope for something rather than grasping at the kinds of half-formed dreams this desire may be creating for us. This is an example of the universal principle in practice of replacing reflex reactions with conscious responses.
Times of crisis can also be when the fruits of the practice finally come. Many years ago at Amaravati Monastery we had a visit from the Abbess of a Christian monastery. She told us how many of the sisters were plagued with doubt all their lives to be finally visited by a host of angels on their deathbed. There are many similar stories in the suttas of people realising the Dhamma in their last moments. There is hope for us all.
I offer this for your reflection
