As once mentioned by the legendary Joyce Meyer that; Patience is not the ability to wait, but the ability to keep good attitude while waiting.
I guess not everyone has fully realised that the quality of being patient goes way toward our goal of creating a more Peaceful and loving ourselves. The fact is, the more patient we are, the more accepting we will be of what is, rather than insisting that life should be bent exactly to suit we would want it to be.
Without this value called Patience, life would be extremely frustrating. We would be easily annoyed, bothered and irritated. Patience adds a dimension of ease and acceptance to one’s life. This quality is essential for everyone’s inner peace.
Becoming more Patient involves opening one’s heart to the present moment, even if one doesn’t like it.
Let’s quickly cite an example; let’s assume you were stuck in a traffic jam, late for an appointment; opening to the moment would actually mean catching yourself building a mental snowball before your thinking got out of hand and gently reminding yourself to relax. It might also be a good time to breath, as well as an opportunity to remind yourself that, in the bigger scheme of things, being late is small stuff.
As opposed to the view of many, being patient also involves seeing the innocence in others.
Yes! Anytime we feel irritated, we should hold ourselves back, try to eliminate any negative thoughts that may come rushing, and be reminded once again of how fortunate we are to be alive. As I have come to discover that, if you look deeply enough, you would see the Innocence in other people, as well as in Potential Frustration Situation . when you do, you will become a more patient and peaceful person, and in some strange way, you begin to enjoy many of the moments that usually would tend to frustrate you.
