Waking Essence: #PATIENCE #Buddhism #happiness
If you want to be happy, then train in the practice of patience.
If you have time for nothing else in your life but practice patience you can gain great insights and realizations.
Can you accept everything that comes into your life with joy and happiness?
Developing a mind of patience further serves to erode the great villain of spiritual growth - anger.
Patience is one of the Six Perfections, the actual path to enlightenment. So why wouldn't you practice patience? It takes no additional time out of your day yet yields such amazing benefit. There is no greater virtue.
