Patience is one of the key lessons that I am s l o w l y beginning to learn.
I love the quote „nature doesn’t hurry, yet everything is accomplished.“ In my own experience, I tend to radically move between action & stillness in this dance of life. At times, however, not all of my actions are fruitful. Why? Because there is a lack of inner clarity, grounding & trust associated with them.
Sometimes, also, I have been tricked by my mind, which admired the perfection of everything, so full of bliss - that everything is already here, & there is nothing really, to do.
Both these experiences are the extreme end of the spectrum. However, most of the time we will fluctuate; dance between the two edges.

All these experiences might seem poisonous, but they are actually our greatest teachers. These pains become our medicine, once we fully align ourselves - once we are truly ready to grow and [continued in comments]
