THIS WEEK’S LESSON
It Will Pass
A student of meditation complained to his teacher about his practice. “Everything is going wrong!” he said. “I’m full of distractions, my legs ache, and I’m constantly sleepy.”
“It will pass,” said the teacher.
A week later, the same student returned to his teacher, excited about how well his practice was going. “Everything is wonderful!” he said. “I’m focused, aware, and full of peace.”
“It will pass,” the teacher said again.”
