Mental Strength = Peaceful Life
Being patient means to welcome wholeheartedly whatever arises, having given up the idea that things should be other than what they are. It is always possible to be patient; there is no situation so bad that it cannot be accepted patiently, with an open, accommodating and peaceful heart. When patience is present in our mind it is impossible for unhappy thoughts to gain a foothold and it is the basis for love and compassion.
