Cultivating patience

Everything unfolds in the perfect way at the perfect time.

“A life of equanimity and appreciation is lived in the immediacy of the present – not in the mind.”
~Ezra Bayda~ 
The ego demands that things move quickly. It seeks something to fix, to create, to resist. If no challenges are present, it will conjure one in order to keep the mind alive and busy. Ultimately, this constant mental activity blocks one’s ability to be at peace in the present moment.

We live in an infinite universe. This planet, and the experiences it offers, is the very beginning of a long journey of awakening. Choose to enjoy it. Cultivating patience strengthens your capacity to relate to life from the higher levels of consciousness rather than the ego-driven desire of false personality.

Pause for a moment and feel whatever it is that you’re feeling right now. Draw your attention inward. Are you at ease? Take the moments in life that require patience – waiting in line, sitting in traffic, expecting a return text or email – and transform them into powerful aspects of your spiritual work.

Today my intention is to be open to whatever life offers. Every moment and experience supports my journey of awakening.
