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.
Be - Not Do
Ascended Master Hilarion
Those who wish to become closer to our Creator decide to embark upon a self improvement that consists of much action.
This is quite understandable. Many on the planet are waking up and wishing to live with a healthy mind, healthy emotions and with a healthy body. All three aspects, when healed, propel you towards the Creator and towards your Divine Purpose here on Earth. Look around you and see how many are changing their diets, changing their exercise, changing the way they react emotionally to events in their environment.
To witness this from the realm of Shambala is truly a delight and a humbling experience. You are awakening as a global consciousness.
For those who are feeling the need for change, the temptation is to want to change all at once and be done with it. The impulse here is to do and do and do. This forcing of change, however, can lead to disillusionment and defeat - not to mention exhaustion from always doing!
So here in the heavenly realms, we suggest that you take it easy and focus upon one doing at a time. For example if you are feeling the impulse to quit caffeine, then just focus on quitting caffeine instead of trying to both quit caffeine and launch a new yoga routine at the same time. Give yourself space to breathe. Master the quitting of the caffeine then move onto mastering the new yoga routine. During the mastering of new habit, just be and enjoy the moment in a relaxed manner.
It is an old saying but it is worth repeating: "Stop and smell the roses."
