Closer Than Farther

We all have “things” we are waiting for…events, plans, holidays, vacations, dreams to come true…etc. We even have negative situations that might loom or we know we are looking to come. I do, in fact, have one such very positive situation I am waiting for its conclusion to take place.  And then I can begin another wonderful adventure. And sometimes…shock!…I can get impatient.

But, something occurred to me over the weekend that caused me to look at it this way:

Every day, every moment, every thought…brings me one day, moment, or thought closer to what I am waiting for.

No matter what we are waiting for or looking forward to…impatience only makes it seem longer in coming. When we focus on the anxiety of waiting, and hoping for swiftness, and frustration that it is not happening in the time we wish it to…we are just adding to the anxiety and exasperation, making us edgy and cranky and cuts into our desire for daily inner peace.

If we can accept that everything comes in its own time when it is meant to, do our spiritual work for its conclusion, and relax into its inevitability…than we can retain that daily peace, let go of impatience and frustration, and stay balanced and focused on all the other things that need our attention.

Keeping the focus and belief on the outcome, goal, destination, or completion keeps us from getting entangled in impatience and wasting that energy…because what is coming will come whether we spend that time in irritation or peaceful belief.

So this is it: Every day, moment, breath…brings us ever closer to what we desire, dream, plan, or wait for. Spend that time in the belief and peace that it comes. And our quality of life gets ever richer.

Weekend Inspiration ~ Patience

P 10

Patience…can be one of the most difficult aspects of life to manage. Especially in this day and age of instant gratification. There are too many ways to “get things now”. But, in the true energy grid of life, where growth and movement happen by nature’s way, the natural way…sometimes we have to be Patient for the river to flow, for things to work out, or for solutions and resolutions to manifest. Consider that…everything has a path. We do, but so do the events and circumstances we face. They have a path to follow as well…to get to completion. This is to our benefit, for if some things move too fast or before their time, then we may miss out on something wonderful that could have occurred.  I have had moments of sheer panic wanting, needing something to happen…thinking I could not go another minute but for it to manifest…and then another minute came…and I had to move on…and I did, and survived that moment. I replaced the panic with Patience. And with it came Calm and Peace, as I realized all would work out as it was meant to.

So…Practice Patience today. You don’t have to master it, just practice. it. If there is something you are waiting for, apply Patience to the emotions you are feeling. Take a deep breath and trust your Path…and the path of what it is that waits. You, and your circumstances, will find the way. All in good time. Blessings!
