Patience is a Powerful Mastery
In this very busy world where instant results can happen with modern technology, it's very easy to become impatient when you have to wait for something. In fact, we can become angry and hateful to others if we are delayed at a line in the bank or waiting in line at a public restroom. In the instant gratification world, we become more and more rude with delays from others and less and less tolerant.
Have you found yourself becoming angry at another because they are not operating at your frenetic, hyper caffeinated pace? Do you find yourself judging others who are taking their time to make a decision?
I come from a world where time was marked by the passing of seasons and the planting and harvesting of crops. the pace was slow and our conversations were often long with pauses.
If I were transported to your time, I think that most would dismiss me as too slow! There is a certain mastery required to be patient. Patience allows all whom you meet the space and time to communicate in their own way. Allowing others this courtesy and honor to respond to you in their own time and way is an act of compassion and Love. It is a Divine quality that pays off with rich interactions and lasting friendships.
Would you like to learn how to master Patience?
Allow me to provide a few practical tips.
The first tip is to stop multi-tasking while having a conversation. When talking to another, give them the honor of your full attention instead of carrying on two or three conversations at the same time with texting. This type of multi-tasking breeds impatience which breeds intolerance.
The second tip is to decrease caffeine intake. Caffeine may make you feel like a master of the universe but you pay the price with an inability to be patient while under it's effects. Caffeine triggers releases of adrenaline in the system which increases the fight or flight response. This is the opposite of patience. Try cutting back to a smaller portion instead of the largest.
The third tip is to let go of all expectations. We carry so many expectations around with us regarding what we can accomplish within a certain time period. When we can't perform this we become desperate and lash out at others for their perceived slowness. Give up the expectations that certain things can be performed in certain times. Lose the expectation and free yourself to becoming more patient.
The fourth tip is to forgive others who are not living up to your time expectations. It is no fault of thier own that they can't meet your expectations.
The final tip is to forgive yourself for being impatient.
Patience is an acquired skill that becomes more and more a part of your life as you practice the tips provide here.
Eventually you will notice and be noticed by others as patient and kind. For this is what patience gives you - a kindness that will attract to you the kindness from others that will lead to new connections and new opportunities.
Enjoy your new found patience like a hot cup of coffee - decaffeinated.
