How can you develop the patience to wait calmly and serenely for your dreams to manifest? For what is patience really?
Patience is defined as “having the ability to endure waiting or delay without becoming annoyed or upset, or to persevere calmly when faced with difficulties.” Is it having the ability to just wait by gracefully for something that you know your heart desires greatly? Can you wait peacefully for the relationship of your dreams to manifest itself or the perfect career to present itself? What about having the patience to wait for your body to heal itself or stand by good-naturedly until you’ve become pregnant? Can you wait for any and all of the many things that our body, mind and soul end up going in a waiting mode for?
Truly, who has everything manifest itself immediately in their life? Who is able to think they know exactly what they want and then wait by patiently for it to occur? Why doesn’t it manifest itself immediately if you know exactly what you want? The truth is that sometimes we really don’t know what we want. We might think we do on a conscious level but once we explore the depths of those desires more closely, we find that it really looked like something else entirely.
I love to look at life this way. When I think I know what I want to see manifest in my life and for whatever reason it doesn’t happen, I love when the time comes and I can look back at that experience and say “Ah, that’s why that didn’t happen at that time!” Things can become crystal clear as we reflect backwards in time. This is why trust is so imperative in our day-to- day lives. Trusting that when all does not manifest itself exactly as we thought it would or look just as we might have expected, we trust there is a definite reason for it. It is one that we may not be privy to at this time. It may be one where it’s actually better that we didn’t know what it was at the time.
Having the gift of patience to trust that all will be revealed as it needs to be gives us the strength and determination to stay peaceful on this journey we call life. When plans don’t work out exactly as you might have expected, smile! Smile in the biggest way possible because you KNOW there’s a higher power at work here. You just don’t know what its plans are at this very moment!
Can you identify a dream or a vision you feel impatient with right now in your life, and decide to trust the outcome and the process. Know that it is for your greater good, and all will be revealed to you as it needs to be.
How much more peaceful do you feel knowing this to be true?
