Don’t push the river.
Sometimes we want things to happen, badly. Often this may be more quickly than they are naturally occurring. We know what we want and we want it now.
Sometimes there may be reasons that instant gratification might not be wise. Perhaps the situation needs a stronger foundation before it can develop in a healthy way. Or there may be factors needed for eventual success of which we’re not aware.
When we allow things to unfold gracefully, we’re likely to have a better overall result. The river knows its own pace. It won’t move faster or more beautifully if we try to push it.
Today’s message urges me to be patient and believe in the wisdom of natural flow. When I am patient, I can appreciate the natural progression and also can enjoy a good end result.
Please reflect and share. What situation might benefit from your patience?
