It will pass…

 

Everything is transitory! Depression and jubilation are the hills and valleys along our path – one inevitably follows another.

The only constant in life is change.

ImageA student went to his meditation teacher and said,My meditation is horrible! I feel so distracted, or my legs ache, or I’m constantly falling asleep. It’s just horrible!”

It will pass” the teacher said matter-of-factly.

A week later, the student came back to his teacher.”My meditation is wonderful! I feel so aware, so peaceful, so alive! It’s just wonderful!

It will pass” the teacher replied matter-of-factly.
