I must admit one of my greatest weaknesses is impatience. Not with others but with myself. I often forget to be kind to myself as I preceive it as being indulgent. When in fact it is based upon my up bringing, whereby I was taught to just get on with it as no one else was going to fix it or do it for me. Therefore when I experience 'road blocks' , imaginary 'massive boulders' on my path I breathe deeply. However my ego tells me not to settle and I become restless and disappoinetd with myself. I ask myself " Why am I still waiting? I have done everything humanly possible and I NEED and WANT this obstacle removed now!" At that moment in time I see it as being forced to wait by the universe, but why?
Then I quiet my mind and in that stillness I am able to access wisdom. I caress my weary mind and the answers come:
Time is an asset not an hindrance . We are here to grow and develop a relationship with ourselves and the divine. A relationship based on trust and of working with our DIVINE PLAN. So when thingss get frustrated and are beyond our control we need to surrender and let go of the EGO. This will help us acquire patience and trust in the goodness of the the universe. It's letting time magnetically draw towards us better resources for the evolution of our soul's development and for the right conditions to be' cooked up'.
The resources we are waiting for are often people to help us develop better ways of thinking and doing things. Alternatively a complete shift in our consciousness (understanding) may be called for before we can clear the 'crud' from our eyes. Delays also safeguard our divine plan; things we agreed to do during our incarnation here, the lessons we wanted to learn and MERITS we wanted to earn to GROW.
So it is important to learn to work with time and read the signs when we simply must be still and surrender in complete confidence to the workings and goodness of the universe.
TRUST and have FAITH
