Welcome, welcome, dear human, on this fine and beautiful day. We are pleased to be here with you again, to talk about the subject of impatience.
When things take time
We know that many of you are feeling impatient. Impatient about world affairs and how they are developing, but also impatient about particular things you want to see happening in your life.
Maybe you want to experience certain things, or you might be longing to see changes in the way things are, or you’re saving money to go somewhere and it’s not going fast enough to your liking.
Some of you are feeling impatience in most areas of life, even when it comes to raising children, training pets, groceries shopping, anything in life has become a task that tests their patience.
Is impatience a struggle for you?
We would like you to think about how patient you are. Are you easily upset when things take longer than you anticipated?
Are you getting frustrated, or even angry, when things don’t turn out the way you want them to?
Does this feeling of impatience come up, because you’re eager to see the results you envisioned, whatever those results may be?
You may be impatient in traffic, or when standing in line in a shop,. There are many, many instances where you can feel frustrated and irritated because of that.
What is it?
But what is impatience telling you? It is an expectation that isn’t met. And it has to do with your attachment to ‘time’.
You are attached to the concept of time, to the linear experience of time. And that, in all honesty, is an addiction.
It’s not very hard to get rid of that addiction, if you are willing to let go of your beliefs about time.
How to solve it
When you would stop thinking in terms of time, stop thinking mainly in the past and future, and start being more in the moment, that alone would instantly solve all your patience issues!
When you are in the now moment, when you are engaged in whatever it is you are doing, without jumping ahead in your mind to a moment that is still to come, the future, you wouldn’t experience that impatience so often.
It would make you more relaxed, more stable in your feelings, and you wouldn’t get upset so often. Because all you are doing with impatience, is running ahead in your mind to the future.
Or comparing your now moment with moments from the past, where you think things were faster or quicker, and forgetting that even then you were already jumping ahead in your mind.
Like we said, it’s an addiction to the time concept.
The question to ask, over and over
If you want to be a more patient person, try stopping yourself whenever you feel that feeling coming up, that frustration and/or irritation, and realize where in your mind you are.
Ask yourself ‘where in time am I?’ and whenever your thoughts are in the future or the past, stop yourself and correct your thoughts, directing them back into the now moment.
When you start doing that, no matter what is going on in your life, you will start to experience more calm, more inner peace, and you will feel happier and more satisfied with your actual life.
You’ll no longer be running ahead in your mind to a life or situations that you would want to appear or to happen.
We love you dear human, and we wish you to be happy and fulfilled in your human experience. That’s why we’re here, to remind you of these things.
We are the Collective Consciousness of All that Is, and with that we are complete.
