    A student went to his meditation teacher and said,  "My meditation is horrible! I feel so distracted, or my legs ache, or I'm constantly falling asleep. It's just horrible!"

    "It will pass," the teacher said matter-of-factly.

    A week later, the student came back to his teacher and exclaimed, "My meditation is now wonderful! I feel so aware, so peaceful, so alive! It's just wonderful!"

    "It will pass," the teacher replied matter-of-factly.


    Moral of the Story: All bad things pass, but then again, so do all good things.
