Being patient with ourselves

Sometimes waiting for ourselves can be a great act of kindness when we live in a culture where so much premium is placed on speed.  It seems that our internal processes and unfoldings cannot be rushed and any attempt to hurry ourselves up can be counter-productive as it activates the defences that are shielding our deeper vulnerabilities and fears.  It is as though we need the same attitude of someone sitting at the edge of a woodland, patiently waiting for a shy creature to reveal herself.  We need to be quiet and receptive, with a warm invitation in our hearts.
