One of the most virtuous qualities of pure
Being is patience. It is the capacity
To accept or to tolerate trouble, delay,
Or suffering without getting stuck in dismay.
Fortitude, composure, and equanimity
Are the attributes of patience that will endure.
Patient people are much better able to cope
With negative situations and folks without
Complaining, getting angry, or acting rashly.
One’s capacity for patience naturally
Will increase as one begins to know without doubt
It’s true nature and essence with regard to hope.
Understanding one’s true self is understanding
Others’ also. Instead of becoming upset
With yourself, others, or a screwed-up circumstance,
One can realize that there’s a much better chance
Of recovery if one is willing to let
Go of what keeps one’s consciousness from expanding.
We need to eliminate anger from our minds.
The lower levels of consciousness we transcend
As we open our hearts to higher truth. Patience
Becomes a dynamic and fun experience.
Energized by intention one can comprehend
Spiritual alignment and joy of all kinds.
