My being an Honorary Maasai Warrior taught me how and why the Maasai are known to be the fiercest warriors in all of Africa, Having the courage to face a lion and spearing it to its death is pretty damn powerful. Yet, I would have to agree with Leo Tolstoy. My soul life lesson has been very much about patience. Trying to hurry up and get in there and fix things up or wanting what I wanted to happen to hurry up and happen! Because of course, I knew what was best right!? Hahahaha….well as they say, life happens to us. And patience has been my greatest pain in the butt and treasured lesson I have learned or that is to say my work in progress.
Our time frame and wanting things to happen in that are very immature, near sighted and incidental in the big picture. We have no control over making things happen in our time frame. It is delusional. Even the little things we think we have power over. We can make our bed in the time frame we choose. Unless the phone rings, or we don’t stub our big toe along the way. These are out of our control. We can feed our loved ones the healthiest of food but yet our child still gets Leukemia. I’m not saying don’t eat healthy food. But often it is not until these big life changing events happen that we realize we don’t have control, other than over our own behaviors, thoughts and actions. When we choose to let go and put our thought and intentions out there then we can watch the beauty unfold before us in absolute awe and joy. When we choose to not be stuck in fear and live by the time line of the Universe, that is power. For us to not confine ourselves, limit our thoughts on what should or shouldn’t happen. It is then we are free from the bonds of a false reality and truly become the most powerful warrior. To live our life without knee jerk reactions, responding to what we want to happen feeding our ego as opposed to seeing what else might be possible with given a little time and patience.
