One of the most valuable things I’ve learned on this spiritual path is how to breathe and stay calm. I used to be very hot-headed. I used to go from zero to sixty in anger and annoyance and it really kept me spinning around in repeating the same lessons.

It took me quite a while to realize that I was repeatedly being offered an opportunity to transcend and transmute my mental patterns (karma) and I was failing. Instead, I was digging in deeper and responding with more upset and intensity. I wasn’t learning, I wasn’t growing, I was (temporarily) stuck in a mud puddle of my own making.

I didn’t realize that the constantly repeating experience, my own personal Groundhog Day, was a blessing only intended for my good.

It was SUCH a great lesson to finally get the power of being kind, patient, present and calm NO MATTER WHAT. Now, I rarely become upset, and when I do, I recognize that I have the option to make that U-turn, go the other way, and calm down.

Out of Self-Love, I’ve learned to do just that.

I can say now, that being patient is a profoundly powerful spiritual practice available to all.

It may not be easy sometimes, but that’s only because we don’t realize the benefit of it. If we knew, we’d be so happy to make the winning choice.

Being calm no matter what is to stay open and receptive to blessings.

To be angry and upset and vengeful is to feel completely cut off from the blessings.

Which will YOU choose next time you’re upset?

We can boost our spiritual progress or we can delay it.

It’s our choice. It’s always our choice.
