Really, it was. See, the theme was ‘Time and Patience’. On the last show [September 6] we worked more on Time than Patience. We worked largely from Ageless Body; Timeless Mind¸ Deepak Chopra. There is a great wealth of information regarding the connection between the mind and body. More specifically, it is about how ones beliefs affect ones body. Put another way: what you think affects how you feel. It’s true. That includes, the way a body ages.

Tonight, however, we moved onward to Patience. Most interestingly, Patience is referred to very few time in ‘the bible’. There are some stories about how someone remained patient and was then rewarded; how God rewards patience in believers but no true discussion of the term, itself.

We, therefore, moved into secular learning and found much more. One initial thought/revelation regarding Patience was that it is always in connection with a goal, that there is always some sort of trepidation attached to it, and yes, some level of suffering. Among those cited were Henri Nouwen, who I first encountered at the Seminary. He actually wrote an entire book on the story of the prodigal son.

In any case, I have shared herein below a couple of my favorite quotes regarding patience.

Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day.”
Rainer Maria Rilke,
Letters to a Young Poet
