Have patience brothers and sisters
“Have patience brothers and sisters” was written by guest contributor, Babajide Faseyi.
There is something about patience that nature seems to love. A baby does not grow to become an adult in 1 day. A seed sown in the ground will take its sweet time of about 3 days before it begins to germinate. Nature just seems to love to move at a pace where every moment is as important as the next moment.
You are here to learn some amazing lessons which will take you to amazing places. So don’t look down on the challenge that you happen to facing right now. When you happen to reflect deeply about your challenge, you will find that there is an amazing lesson to be learned from it.
Some people go through so many challenging things every single day. I feel a great deal of compassion for people who deal with multiple challenges day in and day out.

And on the other side of the spectrum, I feel a great deal of respect for people who are successful today who had to overcome so many challenging hurdles before their success came.
But since nature happens to love patience so much, there must be something about patience that makes it awesome and worthwhile. A 5 year old tree is not better than a 3 year old tree. There is no need for the younger tree to rush to grow into an older tree. There is only the need for every tree to know that it is a natural genius just like every other tree.
So don’t let concerns over your future and what you will become to dim the light of your joy in the present moment. Choose to be patient and to believe and trust in the natural flow and process of your life.

About the Author: My name is Babajide Faseyi. I was born and raised in Nigeria and then moved to the United States for college at the age of 19. In my 20’s, I became acutely aware that there was more to life than I had been taught and this led me to a deep search. I read voraciously. After a period of disillusionment with not having an outlet for the creativity that I felt within myself, I encountered Eckhart Tolle’s book, The Power of Now. And thus, the journey of knowing who I truly am and the discovery of what I have to offer creatively began.
