True Patience

Patience!  Patience!  Patience!


Seriously though, now that my stitches are out and I have progressed to this beautiful blue cast

and now that I am exactly at midway point of having to wear this cast and having to stay off the leg for a total of 6 weeks – I am finding that now, more than ever, I need patience!

Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim just smiles and reminds me to be patient and not allow myself to get stressed.  “Give your body what it needs,” she says, “you cannot rush healing.”

And while I am eying these

and watching these over and over again:

what really gets me through this time are Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim’s beautiful and very true words:

“One of nature’s most beautiful symbols of patience is the transformation – the metamorphosis – of the caterpillar into a butterfly, when the outward picture of the caterpillar’s being changes drastically from one form to another.  Perhaps you have a situation that needs just such a radical transformation.  If you desire to make a change as great as this, consider how the quality of patience is essential.

For a certain period, the caterpillar ingests food to enable it to grow to a certain point.  This is a distinct period of time that cannot be rushed.  When that point is reached, it then forms a cocoon in which it must wait for another period of time.  A transformation occurs in the quiet cocoon that cannot be rushed or disturbed.  Then, at last, at the appointed time, a butterfly emerges, a different creature altogether from the caterpillar, who then reproduces so that the cycle begins all over again.

True patience is knowing the truth and expecting the truth to manifest.” (Seven Steps to Inner Power, p74, 75)
