The other evening I was having a “conversation” with my cousin via text. I had just changed the subject to ask him about my scars. I was wondering if the aloe vera plant and Vitamin E I’ve been using are what he would recommend to his patients. I also wanted to know about the Frankenstein factor – – When, oh when, will these scars begin to fade?
He responded with yes, aloe vera and Vitamin E are what he’d recommend. And as for my Frankenstein comment, he said, “Be patient.”
At this point, I should tell you that we had been texting mostly in English, but with some Spanish thrown in for fun every now and then, just to add some spice to our banter.
After reading his reply of, “Be patient,” I asked him what language that was. English or Spanish? I didn’t recognize it.
He said, “French. Learn it.”
And so it was that the next morning, this was the first thing I saw when I flipped open my morning reading:
What is PATIENCE?
Path of least resistance.
Awareness instead of judgement.
Trust what shows up.
Insight instead of assumption.
Empathy for others.
Non-attachment to outcome.
Compassion for yourself.
Easy manifestation of your Highest Potential.
