“Almost anything can be done if one proceeds slowly enough. Often we are discouraged by the enormity of a task or the length of a journey and become impatient with the difficulties we face. We lose faith in ourselves. Patience reminds us that what is in front of us is just this moment, just this step, just this breath.”

Joseph Goldstein


To be patient is simply to be completely open to each moment,

accepting it in its fullness,

knowing that,

like the butterfly,

things can only unfold in their own time.
