Impatience, irritability and anger rob us of our peace of mind and happiness. When we feel impatient or irritable, we usually become impulsive, fussing and making mistakes in our relationships and our actions. Patience is a mind that, with consistent effort, anyone can learn to develop. When we learn to practice patience, we can overcome these painful and destructive emotions more and more each day.
We all want pain to stop, but it comes like waves. However, the experience of pain can either intensify or reduce depending upon our insight into its origin and nature, and whether or not we can make it spiritually meaningful.
