Helping you become more self-aware, intuitive, effective, efficient, precise, productive, honest, and successful through patience, prayer spiritual exploration, and introspection

 

What is the meaning of life, and how can you use spiritual exploration, patience, and prayer to survive and prosper in daily life.

 

 

Q. Lewis, What is the most important tool for a successful and meaningful life?

A. Plain and simple the best tool, is patience.

Most of us know about the idea of being patient but few of us actually know what that means. As young people, we probably heard it said that patience is a virtue. The patience game is an essential element of Harrison’s Applied Game Theory. Sadly, some folks have no patience and it costs them.

One of the reasons I love listening to the songwriter Leonard Cohen is that the themes in may of his songs focus on introspection and patience. You can hear it in The Famous Blue Raincoat, and his classic Hallelujah.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also remember watching the old television show Kung Fu and having the master say to the student “patience grasshopper.” A patience synonym would be; composure, stability, self-possession; submissiveness, sufferance,  indefatigability, persistence, and assiduity.

 

For the person who seeks a calmfaith-filled inspiring life, a life rich with an inspirational-attitude; a motivational-life filled with opportunityoptimism, and positive thinking, patience is the key to the best life-lessons. You don’t need to read bible verses about patience to understand the benefits available from this trait. There are a number of celebrities named patience including the actress Patience Ozokwor, and the model Patience Silva.

 

So let’s begin with the meaning of patience.

 

Patience (or forbearance) is the ability to endure difficult circumstances such as perseverance in the face of delay; tolerance of provocation without responding in annoyance/anger; or forbearance when under strain, especially when faced with longer-term difficulties. Patience is the level of endurance one can have before negativity. It is also used to refer to the character trait of being steadfast. Antonyms include hastiness and impetuousness.

 

 

 

 

 

 

We move from the past to the future whether we are patient or not.

 

 

 

 

Here are a few famous patience quotes.

 

“Trees that are slow to grow bear the best fruit.”

― Moliere

 

“He that can have patience can have what he will.”
― Benjamin Franklin

“Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.”
― Aristotle

 

 

Of course, there are many quotes about patience and if you take the time and are patient there is much you can learn from them.

 

In psychology and in cognitive neuroscience, patience is studied as a decision-making problem, involving the choice of either a small reward in the short-term, versus a more valuable reward in the long-term.

Patience of human users in the online world has been the subject of much recent scientific research. In a 2012 study involving tens of millions of users who watched videos on the Internet, Krishnan and Sitaraman show that online users lose patience in as little as two seconds while waiting for their chosen video to start playing.[4] The study also shows that users who are connected to the Internet at faster speeds are less patient than their counterparts connected at slower speeds, demonstrating a link between the human expectation of speed and human patience. These and other scientific studies of patience have led many social commentators to conclude that the rapid pace of technology is rewiring humans to be less and less patient.

 

 

 

 

Patience in relationships can show us new ways to connect with our partners

 

 

 

 

In Human, All Too Human, philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche argued that “being able to wait is so hard that the greatest poets did not disdain to make the inability to wait for the theme of their poetry.” He notes that “Passion will not wait”, and gives the example of cases of duels, in which the “advising friends have to determine whether the parties involved might be able to wait a while longer. If they cannot, then a duel is reasonable [because]…to wait would be to continue suffering the horrible torture of offended honor…”.

One cannot speak about patience without also exploring the concept of impatience. Examples of impatience can be seen in common social situations, such as:

  • Traffic – for example, a car at a stoplight honking at the car in front of it immediately after the light has turned green or honking during a traffic jam which is unlikely to unclog the road. Impatience may be a contributing factor to road rage.
  • Complaints or rude behavior while waiting for food at a restaurant
  • Anger at waiting on hold for telephone service and support

Of course, it is always nice to present another point of view. Larry Wall, the inventor of the Perl programming language, declared impatience a virtue which leads programmers to write programs that serve their need.

 I appreciate you reading this blog and thank you for your patience

 

 

 

Be patient until this Covid thing passes. It will soon…

 

 

 

I leave you with the video and lyrics to a beautiful song Patience (not nearly as intense as Guns n’ Roses Patience

 

Lyrics

Has it really been that long?
Did I count the days wrong?
Did we just go ’round and ’round
All the way to step one?

They would ask me all the time
Every time the show’s up
“So what you doin’ with your life”
It ain’t givin’ up

Just growin’ up in stages
(Lay down, low down)
Livin’ life in phases
Another season changes
And still my days are shapeless

It’s always, “Drive straight, don’t be late”
‘Cause time waits for no one
I should be flying straight, with no delay
‘Cause time takes from everyone

I’ve been waiting here
Waiting for the day to come
Take us to the place
Takin’ us where we have gone

They would ask me all the time
Showin’ up in ages
“So what you doin’ with your life?”
Call it givin’ up

I’m just growin’ up in stages
(Lay down, low down)
Livin’ life in phases
Another season changes
And still my ways are aimless, I know
We’re growin’ up in stages
And I’m runnin’ out of pages
Growin’ up

It’s always, “Drive straight, don’t be late”
‘Cause time waits for no one
I should be flying straight, with no delay
‘Cause time takes from everyone

Many of us mistakenly believe that prayer means asking God for “stuff”. Others wonder if prayer is something that only people in organized religion can do?

 

 

The truth is that anyone can pray, even agnostics, and atheists! What I need you to understand is that there are sacred things in the world, and it is Prayer – an invocation or specific act that can activate a rapport with that which is sacred, that can transform your life. Prayer brings us deliberate communication with the divine.

 

Prayer is like a pebble thrown into a sacred pond where the ripple effect of that act can open the door to untold miracles There are many different forms of prayer. One thing that is required, no matter how one chooses to pray, is intention.

 

What I am presenting to you here is a very special, sacred 4-Sentence Prayer that may change your life. This prayer, presented through the 7 Day Prayer Miracle can guide you in focusing your intention, and attention on the beloved Archangel Michael – a healing angel, who you can choose to be a protector against the forces of darkness and evil in your life.

 

Michael is mentioned in sacred texts of all types including the Hebrew Bible (the Old Testament), The Christian Bible, and the Koran.

 

 

If you believe in guardian angels – angels that are assigned to protect and guide a particular person, then I want to introduce you to a very special program –

 

More about The 7 Day Prayer Miracle.

The 7 Day Prayer Miracle can be incorporated into a daily “thought life”, in which one is in constant communication with a god or some sacred quality. Some people pray throughout all that is happening during the day and seek guidance as the day progresses.  Through the 7 Day Prayer Miracle people have experienced audible, physical, or mental epiphanies. It is as if the divine spirit or an angle is blowing grace onto you.

 

 

 

Many of us pray spontaneously and may do so at any time, and yet how we apply and focus our prayers can make a great difference in our lives.

 

 

 

This is not some new age, pseudo-spiritual, or culty mumbo jumbo. Scientific studies regarding the use of prayer have concentrated on its effect on the healing of sick or injured people.

 

 

For some folks, all of the many ideas related to praying and angels can be quite confusing and overwhelming.

 

This is where the 7 Day Prayer Miracle can be an invaluable guide. Are you one of those spiritual seekers who wish to access the power of prayer, yet do not know where to begin?

 

 

 

 

The 7 Day Prayer Miracle has been Proven to Break Open an Ocean of Abundance, Heavenly Wealth, Healing, and Divine Wisdom. And All You Need Is This 4-Sentence Prayer.

 

In these days of upheaval, and uncertainty prayer can bring joy into our lives

 

 

 

I want to offer you valuable information on the power of prayer and specifically about the 7 Day Prayer Miracle.

 

What I am here to share with you is a simple path to bring more love, peace, harmony, compassion, happiness, gratitude, and spirituality into your life.
