waiting...the lost art.

"We have forgotten how to wait;
 it is almost an abandoned space. And it is our greatest treasure
 to be able to wait for the right moment. 
The whole existence waits for the right moment. 
Even trees know it--
when it is time to bring the flowers and when it is time to let go of all the leaves
 and stand naked against the sky. 
They are still beautiful in that nakedness, 
waiting for the new foliage with a great trust that the old has gone, 
and the new will soon be coming, 
and the new leaves will start growing. 
We have forgotten to wait, 
we want everything in a hurry.
 It is a great loss to humanity.... 
In silence and waiting 
something inside you goes on growing--your authentic being. 
And one day it jumps and becomes a flame, 
and your whole personality is shattered; 
you are a new man. 
And this new man knows what ceremony is,
 this new man knows life's eternal juices."


Sitting and waiting on Spirit - that's the new Doing. ;-)
