Paciencia

Patience is power. Patience is not an absence of action; rather it is “timing” it waits on the right time to act, for the right principles and in the right way-

Al diablo con la paciencia y la espera!

Everyday I am waiting for “something“… The old Toyota to warm up, the mind-body website to load, or my old bones awakening to the sounds of a new day.

Everything, everything that we do is about saving time! We see a picture of a skinny-flexy yoga chica in a pose and we instantly picture ourselves there. The truth is, whether we are looking at poses online or the person next to us in class Hurrying through your yoga practice and more importantly – This thing called “life“, is quite debilitating.

Do you know what we find in patience? Love.

Daily Meditation:

The tricky bit is, and believe me this is tricky   How do I share with you, the “instant gratification” seekers of the world, to pause and listen, when we can’t even sit through a red light without complaining?!?

    Paciencia: “It is not the ability to wait, but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting.” saved this on Pinterest but cannot find it. It is a close quotation but cannot remember whose. :)

    Patience. It’s like you wrote that for me! LOL! That’s the most wonderful thing about your blog, it can apply to SO many people. Timeless and universal.
    Thanks for taking time to chat yesterday. Looking forward to a barbeque!

  3. Having ADD, patience does not come easy. How long a project takes and how long I want it to take are vastly different. Patience for me is learning how not to abandon a project because I think it’s taking too long.

      Is the project taking too long, or is it that you envision a perfect project?
      What am I getting at exactly? Trusting, passionately, that you are doing your best – Irregardless of time … This is all that matters, no matter what we are talking about. School projects, love, yoga, brushing your teeth or making dinner.
      May your heart be filled with warmth and happiness this afternoon, take care!

  4. In martial arts it was “enai” (spelled phonetically for me). I have long tried the patience at a red light. Singing. Breathing. Just existing. The more I do it the less challenging it is. And the more comforting it is. :)

  5. From a distance this picture looked like a Jackson Pollock’s action painting ;)

  6. Great post for all the impatient ones…like me. Thank you!

    “If there is meaning in the past and in the imagined future, it is captured in the moment. When you have all the time in the world, you can spend it, not on going somewhere, but on being where you are. So I stretch out, close my eyes, and listen to the rain.”
