times when all of us feel sad, bored, lost,
lonely or depressed. What happens then? Well,
think back awhile: they passed, didn’t
they? They passed, because the basic Law of
Life is Change; nothing lasts, but changes into
something else, and, while it must be admitted
that things sometimes change for the worse,
at other times, they get better; but nothing
remains the same—just like the patterns
in a kaleidoscope.
Now, this is
very simple but very effective philosophy to
keep in mind. When you next feel sad, bored,
depressed, lonely, etc., tell yourself: "It
will pass", and sure enough, it does, though
not always as fast as we would like, of course.
Often, it passes so softly and subtly that we
don’t realize, until later, that it’s
gone, because it has changed into something
pleasant. When this happens, however, we must
tell ourselves the same thing: "It will
pass", so that we are not too disappointed
when it does.
if you don’t want to wait for things to
change at their own pace, do something about
it, instead of being sad about being sad.
