This too Shall Pass

We are living in a time of great confusion, uncertainty, conflict, and hypocrisy. For those of us residing in the US, the political situation today exacerbates these problems. With TV media and social media covering these problems 24/7, we become exposed to information that annoys us and creates negative emotional feelings.

Regardless of what is going on around us, we don’t have to let these negative things or people who promote negative energy affect us. We can still be at peace and in harmony with ourselves despite the storms and dark clouds swirling around us. Some of us have coping methods that protect us – being around positive people, religious or philosophical beliefs, or engaging in positive things that repel the negative energy. For me, poems like “This too Shall Pass” provides inspiration that whatever negative things are happening around they are only temporary and will pass too. I hope it will inspire you too.
