Patience, it’s almost time. . .

That is the real spiritual awakening, when something emerges from within you that is deeper than who you thought you were. So, the person is still there, but one could almost say that something more powerful shines through the person.
Eckhart Tolle

One must learn a different…
sense of time, one that depends more on small amounts than big ones.

There seems to be little taking place in the wilds of the woods this time of year.
Fading greens are slowly drying, eventually dying. . .
Life wearily powers its way through August,
As Summer’s heat holds mean and fast, is there no end in sight?
Trudging and nudging ever onward. . .
Subtle changes are brewing, hidden from prying eyes.
A tinge of this here and a splash of that there. . .
Slight and sparse to the untrained eye,
Mysteries hidden underneath a waning summer’s day
And all that remains is time to wait. . .

“Patience is power.
Patience is not an absence of action;
rather it is “timing”
it waits on the right time to act,
for the right principles
and in the right way.”

― Fulton J. Sheen

    Such powerful quotes about patience! I can remember, as a little Protestant child, watching Fulton Sheen preach on television and listening so carefully to what he would say. You have brought back some memories to this old lady on a very hot August day!!

  2. “Life wearily powers its way through August, as Summer’s heat holds mean and fast, is there no end in sight?” What a perfect description of this time of year and my state of mind at the moment. Will it ever freakin’ end??? Patience has never been my strong suit, and though somewhat better now, I think it only lasted through yesterday! I hate his heat. I hate August. But I love you my hopeful little friend. Hugs, N 🙂 ❤
