IMGP1216bPatience and impermanence go hand in hand.

Once we realize that we can only LIVE in the present moment . . . our impatience to get somewhere else disappears.

We are content to Be Here Now.  In THIS moment.

We no longer WAIT in lines or GET STUCK in traffic.  We enjoy each moment as it unfolds before us.

The grass no longer seems greener on the other side of the fence.   We are fully present in everything that is offered HERE and NOW.

We see that self-created suffering is rooted in the frantic desire to attain something other than what we already have . . .

But nothing lasts.
So what’s the rush?
Enjoy THIS moment.

Instead of striving to reach some distant shore, we become fully engaged HERE and NOW.  We enjoy the journey as each moment unfolds into the next.

Donald-DirectorBe patient.  Life is stirred with a slow spoon.

All things must pass.

We are HERE and it is NOW.
What else is there?

Aah . . . that’s better.
