PATIENCE PONDER THIS

By

What most people don't know is that another word for patience is love. The word "patience" substitutes nicely wherever the word "love" is used. To get an even better understanding of this reverse the thinking analogy. Impatience is the lack of love in that moment. When your cup of patience has run dry, love has all but poured out

WE DON'T CHOOSE IMPATIENCE

Stop and think about this. We don't say to ourselves I am not going to love or be impatient today. That is a foreign thought. What happens is that whatever patience we have or think we have is called upon and we find out that we run dry at some point. It is at that time we tend to judge, condemn, excuse or deny our part

WHERE DOES PATIENCE COME FROM?

Again reverse thinking helps shed light here. How come we are lacking or able to run out of this especially when we need it? The moment where you realize that you could have had more patience is the exact moment of the shortage of it. It becomes self-evident and the circumstances (or people) involved pulled it right out of you. If choose to believe it, they did you favor. How? They showed you your own lack of this

YOU WANT MORE PATIENCE?

Fascinating thought here. Who couldn't use more patience (love) for themselves or for others? Remember: you usually find out about the lack when you discover you ran-out or don't have it. This presents a problem of another nature but with an advantage or heads-up if you will. Knowing your threshold is also the invitation to have more but only if you want it. Love goes where it is wanted as does patience

PATIENCE ARENA

Strangely enough, you must enter into the exact circumstances where you know you have no or little patience. It is in that arena that you will discover your lack/void and if handled correctly, allow the circumstances to present itself. Humility, humbleness and objectivity will first visit with you to prepare a home for more patience. The patience dynamics will appear and change your entire outlook from then on

THE TRIGGER?

What allows this valuable attribute to come forth and offer itself to dwell in you is a combination of time and wanting to know and admitting you don't. The premise? When you come to understand a person or situation, you stop judging it. In place of judgment is the why and the how of what is before you

VERY REVEALING

When we actually see for ourselves why something is happening and how it is unfolding, we have the ability to make allowances, have empathy and even want to help if we can. Another reaction is to not add to or respond to make it worse. We learn not to participate but to observe and hope... even making inquires too

THE CONSCIENCE HELPS HERE

Usually after and definitely during an episode of impatience, we instantly see our lack a sort of poverty and the conscience is quick to point out our part helping us to focus. Other forces are trying to prompt you to blame, accuse and deny robbing you of this most important personal growth for the soul-bearer. Deny this

YOU CAN SEE PATIENCE or not

While invisible, patience or impatience can be seen! When lacking, it is sorely and instantly identified and not welcomed by anyone who sees it at work doing its unprofitable deeds. The opposite is true too. We behold the patience of another and marvel at it. This serves many functions for the observer

WE REMIND EACH OTHER

A person lacking patience or one having a helping of it automatically reminds the observer of just that causing one to say that was well done and I could use more or that is not profitable and doesn't work and I hope I don't do that. This dynamic cannot be ignored or put-off because it is so necessary to our existence

REVERSE THE THOUGHT

A world devoid of love (patience) paints a dark, negative hopeless picture of despair. How can it exist, thrive or go on? It can't!  It is a robber of the highest sort because it takes from within the person's most private sacred inner self places and leaves us in a state of pain, suffering, sorrow and deep ache. This was never intended but is at work at this time as we all can see for ourselves i.e. if you want to. It is there

ITS PRIVATE and PERSONAL

We advance (or not) at our own speed and desires. We cannot hide our progress or lack of it either. There is no shortage of examples or versions of this imperfection and we have an opportunity to choose to do something about it during this short period of time here on earth. You can also see those that have chosen not too as well

Good morning, Richie - more pearls. I have a love/hate relationship with patience at times - a one sided triangle at best I imagine.

Hi Richie... you've been pondering, as Michael Jacobs would say. Some very valuable messages here about patience (and love). 

That being said, I can answer the question of "where patience comes from." Being a real estate broker for over 25 years has made me more patient than my nature would disctate!

Michael Jacobs ...you are describing a type of "stalemate" which doesn't favor the right way. Break-through into the next phase for there is treasure there for you. Proceed at your own speed/choice

Hit there Nina Hollander ...your life journey will and cannot lie to you for that is what happened and is happening. We have been granted the power to improve thus making "personal growth" subjective. May your personal stock continue to rise dear Nina

Grant Schneider ...perhaps both you and Michael Jacobs are doing what allergists do to develop resistance which is to employ come & go exposure until some sort of tolerance is reached. To command ones self, the center is required & disciplines and their arenas are the proving grounds
