Patience

art-stuThe sooner we purge our negative karma, accepting its consequences as lessons and motivations for practice, the sooner we will see that life becomes, if not easy, at least more manageable. Persevering in Bodhisatva conduct, we establish in our mental continuum the causes of our own and others’ happiness.

Patience —with others, with our circumstances, with ourselves, and with the Dharma— is essential. We did not accumulate these negative tendencies and karmic formations in a few days or a few lifetimes, and we must free ourselves systematically and gradually from their chains.
