I’m constantly blown away by how different everything looks and feels from the previous day… and I often think about the people who killed themselves during the night… I wish they could have just held on a tiny bit longer to see the sunrise and notice how quickly everything changes, how all things pass……
“A king called all of his wise men and counselors together for a meeting. He addressed them and said, “I want you to go and think, read, and research. Consult the wisest and most learned men in the land. Spare no expense.”
“I want you to find the ONE statement that will get me through all situations in life. Whether I am on top of the world or in the pits, find that statement.”
“I don’t want to learn long and complicated philosophies. I want one simple statement. Find it or write it; I don’t care, just bring me the statement.”
The men left and consulted for months. They finally returned and handed the King a scroll. The King unrolled the scroll. On it was written four words.
“THIS TOO SHALL PASS” That was it.
The wise men explained. When you are on top of the world, that is but a fleeting
moment, things change, always remember, this too shall pass. When you are in the pits, all nights are followed by day, at your lowest moments remember also, this too shall pass.
All external circumstances and material things change, so matter what your circumstances, remember,
