The word seems harmless enough. Be patient.
Yes, I understand: wait, pause, be still, hold your breath, take in a few deep ones, close your eyes for a sec, now let it out. Yes, that is all part of patience. But, man, it is still so difficult. So many things to be patient about...especially if you're an intense person. Yes, be patient: pray, meditate, go for a walk, take in another deep breath and let it out again, ponder, listen, and be still...again.
Patience is the teacher and I'm the student.
Much to learn - much to learn.
