We are always waiting for something to change. This is natural and part of the fact that our lives are dynamic and we are growing, learning and developing all the time. However, how we wait for growth and change makes all the difference. Yemima makes a distinction between spiritual waiting and โ€œmaterialisticโ€ waiting. Materialistic waiting is rooted in the fact that I cannot stand who I am or what is happening now and I want it to change it ASAP. I am narrowly focused on whatโ€™s not working. Time is not moving fast enough. In spiritual growth we still want our wishes to come true, of course we do. However, we try to wait from a different internal space: We try to remind ourselves gently, that even though we are waiting for something very important to us, we still have areas in our lives that are going well and working for us. We give them attention. We try to carry in our heart the understanding that things have a natural way of developing at their own pace. It is beautiful to give ourselves and those around us the time needed to grow and expand. We can support the growth of the system by giving it what it needs in order to develop on its own. We give from a generous heart without conditions for immediate results.
