Instructions for "Breathing in Patience":
Life is full of challenges, and the temptation can be to jump in and try to 'fix' things, 'make things right', 'smooth things over'. We can begin to judge ourselves negatively when we can't fix things, or make them right, or smooth them over.
Sometimes we need to let time play it's role, and engage in some patient acceptance of the untidiness of life in the meantime.
If we can learn to sit with uncomfortable feelings, and employ our breath to help us do so, time will shed a new light on our troubles, new perspectives will present themselves, hurt will heal.
"I have seen many storms in my life. Most storms have caught me by surprise, so I had to learn very quickly to look further and understand that I am not capable of controlling the weather, to exercise the art of patience and to respect the fury of nature." - Paulo Coelho
