Wait in the Waiting

“And somehow the transformation you knew would never come, that impossible plumping of fresh life and revelation, does come. It manifests itself in unseen slowness. So it would happen to me and so it will happen to all who set out to knead their pain and wounds, their hopes and hungers, into bread. Waiting for the yeasting of the human soul.” – Sue Monk Kidd, When the Heart Waits

We rush and get busy to do something, anything to make the waiting seem less and go faster. But in the waiting, the quiet, if we listen and trust, we find ourselves yet again. And time is not wasted in the waiting. We are right in the middle of becoming who we are meant to be, molded by patience and grace.

We arrive and depart, become and transform again and again. Growing and wilting, blooming again with a depth of beauty that only comes with time. Wait in the waiting.

“It may look as if the situation is creating the suffering, but ultimately this is not so – your resistance is.” – Eckhart Tolle

  1. Spot on. Love the quotes :)!! Good read for a Sunday. I try to convey this to folks as it being our utmost important mission in life but I am misunderstood all too often. Seems life is too good at getting in their way.

    My first reblog. How exciting. Thanks to Andrew at Andrew’s View of the Week, I recently stumbled upon Cast Light, an treasure trove of encouragement to always cast light, rather than shadow in our lives. And who doesn’t need that encouragement?
    Groove on, Cast Light!
