A Cup of Tea (73)
Don’t be in a hurry.
So often, hurrying causes delay.
As you thirst, wait patiently – the deeper the waiting,
the sooner it comes.
You have sown the seed, now sit in the shade
and watch what happens.
The seed will break, it will blossom,
but you cannot speed up the process.
Doesn’t everything need time?
Work you must, but leave the results to God.
Nothing in life is ever wasted,
especially steps taken towards truth.
But at times impatience comes,
impatience comes with thirst,
but this is an obstacle.
Keep the thirst and throw the impatience.
Do not confuse impatience with thirst.
With thirst there is yearning but no struggle.
With impatience there is struggle but no yearning.
With longing there is waiting but no demanding.
With impatience there is demanding but no waiting.
With thirst there are silent tears.
With impatience there is restless struggle.
Truth cannot be attacked;
it is attained through surrender
not through struggle.
It is conquered through total surrender.
