A warrior can wait for a long time.
How long? For as long as it takes.
As I talked about in the previous post, waiting brings clarity.
One might think that waiting entails sitting in a corner and staring at the wall, or twiddling one`s thumbs and waiting for life to just magically come together. But this is not the case, at least not completely.
We have to put effort into what we do. We have to put energy and focus on what we want, or at least what we think we might want. I don`t always know. But I find that if I put all my energy into it, and it`s not what I want, I know almost immediately.
But then the universe does the rest. Paulo Coelho talks about in his book, The Alchemist, that the universe conspires to help us. I believe this.
When there is a direction we feel lead in, or something we feel we want, we should travel in that direction with all of our strength.
Then, when we feel tired, we should wait. When we feel like we want to continue in that direction, but we don`t know where to go, we should wait. When we are looking for guidance along our paths, we should wait.
This waiting helps us become who we are, and helps us to really know what we want.
Good things come to those who wait.
