Patience

 

"The darkness of this gloomy night shall pass away…
Have patience, wait but do not sit idle; work while you are waiting; 
smile when you are wearied with monotony; 
be firm while everything around you is being shaken..."

-'Abdu'l-Bahá

◈ What stories and examples of patience do we know? How has patience been expressed?

◈ How does patience help us to see things differently? How does it relate to seeing the potential in things?

◈ How can we be more patient with ourselves?

 

Jean-Jacques Rousseau once said that ''Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.'' In life, we face a multitude of challenges and often we find ourselves racing to find our destinies, but if we master the art of patience and approach all obstacles with hope and the faith that we will prevail then there is nothing that we cannot achieve. With this collection, we explore music, poetry art and film to demonstrate the many ways in which developing patience allows us to attain our higher purpose.
