Four Words


Dear reader, the year is drawing to a close.
How has your year been?
Exciting? Eventful? Wonderful? Challenging? Fantastic?
Lets choose to live our Best life!

With that, I would like to share the story below with you.
May it help you get through all situation in life.

A king called all of his wise men and counsellors 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. No
matter what your circumstances, remember,

The wise men reminded the great King that this would get him
through his earthly things but the truly wise knew there were things
beyond this earth and life. Things those were eternal. True wisdom
they reminded the King was in the ability to recognize the fleeting
temporal things of the material world from the truly eternal things.
O Great King they said, “Most of the things that you worry or gloat about
are temporary and our four words apply.”

Dear readers, remember, for most of your situations. . .

My friend, this year is coming to an end, with a New Year approaching.
Whatever challenges that you are facing, this too shall pass.
Lets welcome the New Year with new hope and look forward to a fantastic new beginning!

Live your Best life!
