Why You Should Always Try Your Patience

Her Comfort Zone by Cherie Roe Dirksen

The Ultimate Test of Patience

“Trying to understand is like straining through muddy water. Have the patience to wait! Be still and allow the mud to settle.” 
― Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching

I love that last bit — ‘allow the mud to settle‘. How many of us allow our challenges to abate before we act?

Ever got a stinking e-mail from someone and you reacted to it immediately only to smack yourself on the forehead the next day, wondering why you didn’t just sleep on it?

“I see patience as a little breather in between manifestations”

It’s always a good idea to give yourself time, space and patience to see things with greater clarity and to react out of a calm and clear frame of mind. Read related article: Why a 10 Minute Meditation Could Mean Everything

I’ve got to admit that I was one of the most impatient people I know. It took me all of about 8 years of self discovery to find out what an important little gem patience really is. I see patience as a little breather in between manifestations.

Let’s Look at the Word Re-Solution

SUBSCRIBE icon 1When we get whipped up in a world full of chaos and madness, it’s very hard to remain calm. However, it is essential to be the calm in the storm if you are going to be the purveyor of change. Try daily doses of meditation (you only need about 10-20 minutes).

We all have our moments when life throws that curve ball and it is our responsibility to alchemize anything that is tossed our way.

This simply means to stop, take a knee  and ask yourself, ‘how do I want this to resolve or play out?’. When you can see the resolution (look at that word ‘re’ ‘solution’ — you are literally making a new solution to the challenge laid out before you), you begin to change the timeline.

Your job is to hold the vision of how you want the outcome to look. Oh…and to have patience. Sometimes things happen quickly and other times we need that awesome little alchemizer called patience.

Your solution doesn’t come a moment too soon or too late — remember that!
