Heart Wisdom – Ep. 63 – The Perfection of Patience

Ingrained in most modern cultures is the idea that progress is about speed and growth. This mindset of “more, better, faster” can have a negative effect on our development and quality of life. Remember the rhythms of life that you were born into; return to them. Live with that kind of dignity and presence that is your birthright. Mindfulness practice can support us in finding the natural rhythm of things, which is the key to patience. Maybe the opposite of impatience is not patience, but somehow presence, trust or contentment—to be able to begin to trust where you are. Rumi says, “Don’t be an impatient bystander in this life, be present for it.”
