This Too Shall Pass!
Everything in life is temporary…Darkness of the night or brightness of the day. Even sunrise is temporary… And so is sunset. If things are going good – enjoy it… it won’t last forever. And if things are going bad – do not worry – because it won’t last forever either. Everything just passes by (Smile)
I have a Filing system where I put all those good Emails sent to me by others in a file marked To Keep. I tried to find the one sent to me by my sister on This Too Shall Pass – but could not find it. However, I found this one above (a bit similar) that was sent above to me by a very good friend in Philippines after returning home due to family situation and circumstances.
It was sent to me after my business went bust and losing all my life’s savings and for a big project that was scrapped soon afterwards and our competitor doing the job together (International Company) got three times what we got from this big company. They made some profits, but my plane went into a steep dive and went in one piece into the Pacific Ocean like the Air France one!
The one that my sister had sent me was about this king in a certain land that had called all his Advisors together to find a sort of Mission Statement (Vision) for the land – because he had found all his peoples were unhappy and sad – after tragic incidents of storms, tempests, economic downturn, high inflation and costs of living and unemployment of its young peoples – and some of the peoples emigrating to other countries because of all these. He told them – I give you a month to come with a slogan that I can tell my peoples not to lose hope and be brave about their current plights and misfortune. He said to them – I want it to be as short as possible.
After several weeks and the project running late, they came up with this slogan – This Too Shall Pass! They told the king – this will make everybody appreciative and understand – and make them not to lose hope – for now or in the future. It also explains everything they have met and will meet in life – from now on. Initially the king was not convinced – but the more and more he thought about it and the more sense it made.
The slogan was adopted. Fortunately for the rest of us there were no copy or patent rights – and you will no doubt agree with me that the wise men did come out with a very good slogan that will explain most things in our lives now!
So Just Remember – Whatever Crisis etc you are facing in your Life Now (or to face!) ….. THIS TOO SHALL PASS!
Between Us Only! Images!
