Do you have the patience to wait till your mud settles?

“While life brings you thrills and excitement, it also dispenses you with a fair share of puzzles and perplexity. You are perplexed when a good friend suddenly gives you a cold shoulder, worried when your boss speaks to you in a tone unusually stern, and anxious when your tour agent fails to pick you up in a foreign land. We tend to react when uncertainty arises; and often overreact. You can, as a matter of fact, try something quite different. When you are puzzled at what your see, do not stare hard.  Instead, relax your mind and get your inner self to feel the thing. When you cannot figure out what you hear, do not struggle to listen. Rather, take a step back, and feel the vibration with a quiet mind. Let go of trying and open your mind to receive. When you allow your mind to receive, intricacy is given a chance to become simplicity; and the shapeless to palpable. It gets you see what you do not see and hear what you do not hear – moving you a step closer to reality. It brings the present back to you, enabling you to know what is actually happening. Do you have the patience to wait until your mud settles and the water is clear? “Do you have the patience to wait Till your mud settles and the water is clear? Can you remain unmoving Till the right action arises by itself?” Lao Tzu Tao Te Ching Chapter 15: Do you have the patience to wait till your mud settles – Tao Te Ching”
