Patience is not about waiting for a successful outcome. Patience is about observing the things that happen, and then do the things that need to be done, at the moment it needs to be done.
Patience is about knowing and accepting that things still develop — out there — and are not yet ready to get involved with. That’s patience.
Patience is taking a step back — when necessary — and let things happen, however horrible they might be. Patience is not all passive. It’s extremely active in it’s awareness, in it’s consciousness of a given situation.
When action finally comes — from out that silent awareness — then that action will move mountains. It will, because that type of action is the perfect answer given on a situation perfectly seen, and it will put in this extra factor. It will set in motion a powerful catalyst, changing the state of affairs, in ways that were not to be foreseen.
Patience is a living quality emerging from out our unspoiled grounds, from out these pure lands which can only reflect reality as a whole, changing our reality merely by seeing truth, by seeing what is untruthful accordingly.
Actions that follow from out seeing “the whole,” are not planned. They follow naturally, necessarily. It’s like seeing a child drown, and jumping after it without a moment’s thought.
Patience is not lazy. It’s about knowing what happens, and do things if something needs to be done. But patience can wait, doing nothing, ever, for sometimes she knows when things will sort out themselves.
