‘Waiting‘ is a beautiful word.
When we look up the word ‘wait’ in dictionary, it reads:”stay where one is or delay action until a particular time or event”
We all wait in our lives for something, for someone, don’t we? For the perfect job. For the perfect spouse. For the society to deem as successful. Well, that is just the way it is!
We are being jostled and cradled in a world of instant gratification. We are never taught to pay attention to the journey, pay attention to our waiting. Even if we do, we will sadly nitpick. That something or someone is not good enough. That we are not good enough. That we could be better.
In sight of the goal, we lose sight of what we are today. Things that make us ‘us’.
Do you know what it also reads: “remain in readiness for a purpose”
Only when we bring light to that side of the definition, would we turn back to the now. Only then we will enjoy this moment of our making. Right here. Right now.
Take a deep breath. We are here. We are ready. We are in the now. What will come along is only going to complement us, but never complete us. We are already complete-full-whole.
The next time something doesn’t confirm to our pre-conceived notions of success, let’s remember: the act of waiting might never be tasteful by itself. But it is how we wait that makes all the difference.
Much love and power to you my good people,
