This Too Shall Pass Away

This too shall pass away. 

Really?  A famous consolatory phrase, but very popular amongst spiritual groupies. Usually when they hit a new low every time, this phrase comes alive like a warm motherly embrace. But what exactly shall pass away? The bad times, or the bad experiences, or the life itself. Regardless of that, passing everything even the good times "away" is directly proportionate to unconscious living.

Not living the moment but waiting for it to pass away. Such a living by no means can be fulfilling or complete. It's not in 'passing away' the good and bad in life that one knows the truth, but consciously living, as the good and bad unfold in the moment.
