Be patient and the sky will become bluer as Alekos Sakellarios says in his lyrics. Strong lyrics from 1966. Think that since 1966 and before they were still talking about patience. Even before you were born, there were dark and icy roads. Their only company was the cloud and the storm and their only solution was patience. They were to wait but also to endure the blows of life. The dark situations they were experiencing at that time.
But 2021 today and most of us have lost and ignore the word – patience. It is difficult to cultivate patience when we ourselves are completely unaware of it and are constantly in tension. We are constantly running to reach the same thing again and again. We are completely anxious and that is one reason we lost our patience. We can make things simpler if we look at reality a little bit. If we see how we move and how we talk. Our movements. Let’s see a little inside us. Very hard to doing that. But not at all difficult if we dare to touch patience once. Instead of getting upset because the car broke down and we could not go to work and did not manage to do all this today, we can wait again. We may not do that today. The issue is simple, we make it complicated. Once we say “ok it does not matter” or prefer another option in our lives. But this is how things are sometimes, we just want to do everything perfectly in our lives and everything is rosy. But what kind of life is this? Without rain, a rainbow never comes out, not even by force. We do not all have the same disadvantages or advantages. But let us not worry about them. Everything in its time.
Many of us say “I can not be patient”, and what about that? The truth is we can not or do not want to gain patience? Do we not want to struggle once or do we not want to grow a little spiritually? Unfortunately, most of the time we prefer easy roads. Those without virtues. Life is simpler than we imagine but in our own eyes it is so difficult to see. We are afraid or we don’t dare to touch patience.
One truth from life is that it does not help to worry about things we cannot control. The Bible aptly states: “Which of you by being anxious can by reason of length prolong his life even by a few inches?” – Luke 12:25, The New Testament — A Handbook of Study and Life.
