The patience with which predators hunt their prey is worth watching. For spectators, it can take hours of build-up for the actual hunt. Yet, the success rate of catching a prey is around 20 percent. Going on a safari, it can take hours, or days, just to see the bird or animal you wish to see. Sometimes, your entire life may go by not seeing something you want to see in nature. Start cultivating the patience to see things in nature and this will lead to the patience to see your true nature. We feel so small in the vast lands of a safari. We will feel even smaller in the vastness within. Now, how many have the patience to see what cannot be seen, only experienced? It is this patience that makes one humble about one’s own insignificance. Problems will also feel small when you see the struggles that animals and birds go through just to exist. Now you will see your life with a new perspective. — Satish Daryanani
