When you are feeling hurt, the proverb “This, too, shall pass” reminds us that all situations are temporary – good or bad – that change is inevitable, and that we can enjoy the good situations in life without the fear of losing them.

Excerpt: “This too shall pass” is a proverb indicating that all material conditions, positive or negative, are temporary. The phrase seems to have originated in the writings of the medieval Persian Sufi poets, and is often attached to a fable of a great king who is humbled by the simple words. Some versions of the fable, beginning with that of Attar of Nishapur, add the detail that the phrase is inscribed on a ring, which has the ability to make the happy man sad and the sad man happy.

Excerpt: When you are aware, that every form and every feeling is temporary, you can develop an abundance in your life. It will be possible for you not to identify yourself with form and feelings. Not identifying yourself with your situations does not mean you will fail to experience all the good things in life. It will actually make you enjoy them more, when you accept that all things are temporary and that change is inevitable. Because realising this will make you praise the good situations in your life, as long as they last, without the fear of losing them. When you are free of the chains linking you to your current situations, you are free to develop a higher perspective of the situations in your life. You are no longer trapped in them.
