“Nonresistance, nonjudgment, and nonattachment are the three aspects of true freedom and enlightened living.” Eckhart Tolle (The New Earth)

When we truly understand that all of our problems are caused by our resistance, our judgment and our attachment we will finally be free. Think of something or someone that disturbs your peace. Just thinking about them will probably cause resistance within you. A tightening of the chest, heart beating faster, anger or fear rising within you. You want to stop it and your natural inclination is to resist. It becomes something that is judged bad. The judgment and the resistance are signs of attachment.

Now envision this situation or experience as a breeze that simply blows through you. As it blows through you, you no longer try to stop it. Without resistance it can only pass through and move on, out and away. Because you did not resist it, you did not judge it. Because you did not judge it, you did not become attached to it. Instead of it being something as it had in the past, that took up your time and your energy, this time it left without affecting you in any way. It was just a breeze that simply moved through and disappeared into the nothingness from which it came. “This too shall pass” simply means that if we do not stop it, everything that bothers us will flow by without touching us or hurting us.

When you feel resistance and want to judge or attach become still. Breathe quietly and calmly and feel the breeze of truth as it blows your troubles away. Then you can smile with joy and know that it’s true, “This too shall pass.”


  1. Thank you for “This too shall pass.”

  2. You’re welcome, Pam. I have been spending Tuesday nights and Wednesdays and Friday nights and Saturdays with my daughter, Kristen and her strength and her healing process is so beautiful to watch. We went to the hospital to thank some of the nurses and staff for the way they helped Kristen and so they could see her looking healthy and strong. There tears and joyful laughter when they saw her. Even the male nurses were very touched. It was a beautiful joining and our hearts were overflowing with love for them all. The Intensive Care health care providers are so grateful to see their patients no longer patients, but now healing and growing stronger. I’m so glad we went. Love, Sharie
