I remember many times in my life being told that patience is a virtue. Usually when I was getting frustrated that what I knew was the best thing to happen wasn’t happening fast enough.
My friends and family will certainly agree that patience has been one of my life’s lessons. When I see a need for action I can’t help but want to rush ahead. Often waiting for others to see that need, agree on action and then start doing it has been a challenge. I feel my need for speed is because I can take ages to make a decision. I like to make sure that it’s a good decision. Who doesn’t? But I can go round and round the matter rather too much.
Yet I also have times when everything is so clear that waiting is very hard. Especially when I’m waiting for other people to see what I see. I do try to explain but when it is coming in on a claircognisent connection that can be hard. There are some things I know. Not just think I know. I feel them in my heart and my mind as concrete facts. Clear information steering me in the right direction. I find it hard to describe that inner knowing and certainty to others. Especially if they don’t use their intuitive senses.
So sometimes it’s about waiting for people to catch up. Or the time to be right. Or for me to make a decision. That’s the key point. Most of all it’s about being patient with myself.
Another saying I heard a lot was everything comes to him who waits. I have helped myself to become less impatient by remembering that I will have all the time I need in this life to achieve what I’m here to do. So will everyone else. We will all be able to do what we planned before we came here. Sometimes that list of jobs takes 25 years, sometimes 95 years. If I take the opportunities as they come up then everything will have been done when it’s time for me to enjoy the Afterlife.
Understanding this has helped me to stay calm through many fears. My ‘if only’s’ have become ‘when’s’. I use the words ‘it hasn’t happened YET’. I know we will find a peaceful,way to live together. It hasn’t happened yet. When it does we will be ready for a new spiritual challenge to help us evolve. Practicing patience for longer term aims is a way to bring patience to current aims. It’s also part of manifesting whatever is needed at exactly the right time.
As we start to move into a waning mood let go of anything that is making you impatient right now. See that things can change more quickly and powerfully when you are practicing patience. Let patience be your new virtue.
