Transcript

I don’t know if you’ve noticed this but a lot of times I find that I’m impatient to get to the next important thing happening and so missing of the present moment because of my impatience. So technically intentionally cultivate patience and a kind of recognition that sings unfold in their own way and that it was some profound way Things cannot be hurried.


So when we are always rushing to get someplace else, the by-product of that is that we never where we actually are which is a tremendous sadness and a tremendous loss. Sometimes we’re impatient with other people. Sometimes we’re impatient at work, sometimes we’re impatient to get things done. But this wisdom of patience is something that is also profoundly healing and restorative.
