“Waiting patiently for something good to occur is not a passive activity. Waiting patiently is an active state. With the full knowledge and faith that what’s for you won’t pass you by, and by breathing, relaxing, and going with the spontaneous impulses that arise from within, you actively engage with the world, relishing every moment as it occurs, until in the fullness of time, that good thing you’ve been patiently waiting for will present itself in full manifest from before your very eyes.
You haven’t wasted a single moment of your precious time here wishing it to be different. Patience means wishing everything to be exactly as it is, knowing full well, in the meantime, that according to the immutable law of yin and yang, things will change of themselves anyway and, if your original intention was clearly focused, they’ll change along lines appropriate to your best interests.”
Stephen Russell, in “Barefoot Doctor’s Guide to the TAO”
