The Ring ... A Spiritual Story

“The Ring”
Story by Unknown Author
One morning, the boy Solomon saw the goldsmith who worked for King David's Palace walk out of the palace very desperate and sad.
Salomon asked the goldsmith with curiosity, what made him feel so sad and desperate.
The goldsmith answered, “I have to provide a solution to a problem to the King within seven days. If not I will be taken out of my job. I am really confused because there is no solution for what the King has asked.”
“What is the problem the King posed to you?” Solomon was curious.
The goldsmith told Solomon, “I need to make a gold ring for the king with an inscription on it. The inscription should help the king not to be very happy and forget the divine truth at his happy moments. At the same time the inscription on it should help him not to lose his heart when he is facing failures and desperations.”
Immediately Solomon told the goldsmith that he should inscribe the following on the ring :
“This too shall pass”
