Each month the the yoga studio where I teach identifies a theme that our teaching team works to weave into every class - offering students an opportunity to explore a single concept both as it applies to their yoga practice and what it means when they are not on the mat. This month we are looking at patience, a challenge for many of us.
In our fast-moving, destination-oriented world, patience may seem a charming, but antiquated virtue. Patience with others - whether colleagues, fellow commuters, or family - can be utterly inconvenient; and patience with ourselves hardly feels worth the effort.
I don't recall when I first stumbled upon this quote, but it has been on my mind all month. In times of uncertainty, I find it a reassuring reminder that I don't need to have all the answers. When things are going well, it serves as an encouragement that I am on the right path.
Can you have patience with yourself today? Can you live the questions and wait patiently for the answers?
