Is Your Mind Restless?

Patience is an ever present alternative to the mind’s endemic restlessness and impatience.

Scratch the surface of impatience and what you will find lying beneath it, subtly or not so subtly, is anger.

It’s the strong energy of not wanting things to be the way they are and blaming someone (often yourself) or something for it.
This doesn’t mean you can’t hurry when you have to.

It is possible even to hurry patiently, mindfully, moving fast because you have chosen to.
– Jon Kabat-Zinn
