Q. How does one develop patience? A. This question is really for me. I lack patience. I want everything done, not right now, but yesterday. There is one particular area where patience is required. When you first begin to sit in silence, it takes a lot of patience before you can start enjoying peace. It takes a long time to realize that the thoughts that come from within are not the mind playing tricks on you. You must long to see the Lord, but wait patiently until He reveals Himself to you. In worldly matters, wait for the Lord’s grace to have patience. I guess all we can do is pray. There is an advantage also, of impatience. You do not postpone your duties and service. Some people are blessed with the gift of patience. Others are struggling like me. — Satish Daryanani
