The Key To Life As We Know It

Today I'd like to make a comment on a condition that effects a great many of us. It is often a factor in those who raise us and it is often as a result, even if we did not come in with that as a lesson, a factor by conditioning in our lives - and that is patience.
We are trained to experience a level of dissatisfaction without immediate answers and yet life presents us around every corner - and frequently on straight pathways that seem to have no blockages - challenges to our aspirations and these challenges, regardless of the aspirations, invariably are shot through and through with a demand for patience.
It is very easy because of the nature of life and our personalities to believe that the acquisition of patience is something that is but an annoyance and yet consider what we want - everybody - and how long it takes us to acquire it - be it an object, a circumstance, a state of being or someone or something eh - consider what we want and what we go through to acquire it and whether it makes us happy or not. Is this what life is about or is it that life is about the acquiring of certain states of being regardless of our pathway to get there.
In my understanding it is the nature of life - that life itself - the drama of it, the aspirations, the highs, the lows, everything - are all leading for everyone of us to that state of being where we can learn, appreciate, value, then cherish - in that precise order the value of patience.
Examine your life just for a little while, when you have time, to consider these thoughts and consider - if you look at your life - is it possible that what you don't have and even what you do have - is it in any way about patience? I think you will discover that it is in many ways about patience. If we are all here learning about patience, at least many of us yes, then it is safe to say that even in our lives as we get on with them and traverse much of them that patience will do us a great deal of good and even get to the point in our lives where we will not only value the road to patience but be able to provide a certain degree of encouragement and even provide - perhaps yes - a display of patience to others so that we do not add to their anxiety to acquire or anxiety to please. Would that not be a wonderful way to support life in a way that many of us wish we were supported.
Consider - is patience a part of your life? If it is, feel free to make comments here to each other - remember - help each other on this path. It is so very encouraging, is it not.
Goodlife to you all and goodnight.

Louis, Scratching the surface in our complex world and in the world of spirit is a pretty good start and so is the capacity to acknowledge such a progression and that alone reveals wisdom.
Goodlife.
