The Act of Patience

on Jan 8, 2015

Beyond virtue, patience is a skill:

Patience is the skill to allow and accommodate for a process to develop at its own pace.

Patience is not waiting for something. Patience is a type of organizing that respects the development of the environment and the self. Waiting is only one component, an action of inaction, in that constellation.

We reflect upon some intention, acknowledge its needs of material, mentation, and time, and begin to accommodate for them. Each component in turn is provided its nutrients until some vision unfolds.

“What is my intention?”

Strength in a Pause

on Jan 17, 2014

Regularly and frequently,

Or when finding our way towards the end,

When unclear or confused,
When distracted by the inside or out,

Or when it would simply be nice to pause.

On Mastery

on Nov 1, 2013
