Sometimes it sucks to have to wait. Being a fire sign does not help when you’re told to be patient either. However, being patient and just waiting offers its own beneficial gifts no matter how annoying it seems to endure.
Being patient allows us to stop, look, and listen. This forceful time-out and unwanted happening can be a gift from the universe believe it or not. By using this sudden pause to our momentum we have time to go within and notice life for what it is, Life.
We often can move so fast that we forget to milk our forceful pause for all its worth and notice it as an opportunity to gain inner clarity and observe the world around us.
The world offers lots of distractions and technology doesn’t make it any easier. The constant desire for stimulation can make silent pregnant pauses awkward and unwanted. Yet, we can take the time we are called to be patient to channel our angry energy of our hold-up and use it in a productive way where we can search within our souls to dwell in peace.
By confronting ourselves in these moments of delay we have a unique opportunity to can gain further clarity about ourselves and our situation.
It’s in the stillness of time in the arms of patience we can learn and discover more about ourselves and of those around us.
We have an opportunity to learn and grow in these moments where it seems all is lost and time isn’t on our side. For, in fact, everything exists within the now of time. For it’s in the now of time where life takes on its play and allows us to steadily embrace every moment of our lives. We can also begin to cherish these moments of pause as a beneficial experience.
This is no easy task and not for the faint of heart. But with practice, we can gain an appreciation of these moments where we are called to be patient by embracing every formation of our day and seeing a temporary universal pause to be patient as a gift, not a curse.
