What's Your Waiting Style?
It is said, “Life was always a matter of waiting for the right moment to act;” “Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known;” “The world is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper;” “If you spend your whole life waiting for the storm, you’ll never enjoy the sunshine.”
The merits of patience abound and still we struggle with this concept often. Why is this so you ask? Well, because we often want to see evidence of a desired thing at the speed of now. But when you
fully consider the repercussion of such an immediate wish fulfillment, you might come to see instant gratification as something less then you imagined.
For instance, in the heat of a disagreement you release the words “Drop dead!” Can you imagine what your life would be like if the person–someone you truly love and care about, drops dead on the spot? Their dying would probably haunt you for the rest of your days. You would find it hard to believe you didn’t have a hand in their demise. Because when you uttered those words with such intense anger and heated emotion–you meant them!
Patiently Waiting Is The Assurance Of Whats To Come
Aren’t you glad God/Source does not deliver to you at the speed of now the thing you request with such passion and momentary certainty? In its infinite wisdom and love, Source demonstrates to us the wisdom of patience, the importance of knowing self and the logic in having a gestational period. There’s usually a cooling off or growing cycle that follows any intense desire. If not, most of us would be in a heap of trouble!
Remember this the next time you decide to stomp your feet, fall on the floor kicking and screaming, point your finger or simply have a pity party and give up. Patience is not a waste of time and your desires/requests are not being ignored by Source. Patience is wisdom and love in action. It’s the gestational period designed to help us become wiser, fearless and more loving beings.
