Patience, Faith & Detachment.

Patience, Faith & Detachment.

I have seen patience used as a way to create space and clarity before a decision is taken. Effectively a decision is delayed.   We are often made to feel by others or even our-self that we MUST make the decision right now, immediately.  But, I see that actually you can in most cases delay a decision, or even change your mind after a decision is made.

I really, believe that where one can one should sit on a decision, meditate, and ask The Divine for clarity.  Because, if we take a decision because we feel we must immediately, we often are not thinking clearly.   I think to wait, create space, and peace allows us to have clarity, then we can use wisdom, understanding and silence to guide us in taking the right decision.    I believe Patience requires an element of faith and detachment. It requires us to be constantly learning from life and all the lesson and practising patience.  Then, no matter how big the life lesson, the earthquake of the life test is, you will sail through it with minimal upset, anger, frustration and drama.


I believe to practise Patience you need

  • faith,
  • detachment,
  • maturity,
  • wisdom,
  • to be constant,
  • to be centred,
  • to be stable,
  • to be calm,
  • to be tolerant,
  • to be farsighted,
  • to be brave,
  • to be light,
  • to be understanding,
  • to be experienced,
  • to be fearless
  • and extremely connected with yourself and The Divine.

You need to know you and your automatic reactions,

  • you need to know if you make good decision or not,
  • you need to know how to put a break on making decision,
  • and you need to learn with each experience that life gives you.

Patience is a beautiful quality, value, and virtue.  If you try and practice it in every situation in life, you will become skilled and you will cringe why was I so impatience before.  The more patient you become, life becomes easy,  you start glide through life calmly and may be when that life tsunami hits, you might get a tiny bit shaken up, but it won’t last as long as before and you won’t be a wreck like before. 

So, let us try  to have the intention/create the habit of Patience, and long side patience let us have the faith and the detachment to allow us to practise patience.

Life is beautiful even in the mess.  Our life can be designed and sculpted by us.  If we practice patience we make our life beautiful and graceful, we sculpt our life and our-self to be beautiful characters with charm and grace, like a beautiful white Swan gliding on a lake.  Yes that can be us. It can be.  © 2017 thoughtsnlifeblog.

  1. I think patience, plus quietness are essential in making big decisions. I recently had one, and agonised about it. What I would say is that: its harder than people think to make that decision, even with all the spiritual knowledge we acquire.

    1. Scott, thank you for you comments and thoughts.
      Agree, Quietness is needed, and I find to meditate and give it to the Divine and wait can really help.

      But, it is the waiting and not thinking too much about it and trusting , it will work out in the end that is tough. That is where, experience comes in. Yes is is hard, cause the habit to think and resolve and think and it has to happen is so deep in us. I struggle with it, but since practicing it and seeing my mum in action , it works. But, the first few times is hard, then it gets easier. I think it is not only about spiritual knowledge, it is a bit about self conservation – and chilling out – especially with me. I can make a mountain out of mole hill and I have really got so much better at that, and this why I say to me, keep practicing and success will follow. The habits of impatience and resolving now is stronger and that is why it is hard, in my humble opinion. but it is possible, – but it takes practice. Some times we do well and sometime not so well.. but eitherway we are better than before.. make sense.

      1. HI Bella, definitely makes sense. If you read one of my earlier blog posts, I talk about the struggle within, how we can talk and preach and tell others, but when it comes to our own decisions, we find it very hard too. I personally found lots of guidance during meditation and yoga, but in normal consciousness, I was getting a lot of strong resistance; and it wasn’t necessarily my ego either. Perhaps resistance to change. I don’t know. Thanks anyway, for a thought provoking post. Best, Scott

        1. I think i read that post. I think everything takes time and one day it clicks.. it just takes time but eventually it happens.. may be it more about will power and tenacity than spirituality … i and i wont say it ego…either. time and not giving up.. or give up and retry again and again ..until one day. Thats me for real. Thats my journey.. hehe


  2. Patience is a virtue we should all try to master, but it us so difficult in our age of instant gratification. Your admonition on detachment is right on. If w
    I can learn to be detached from any urgency I feel to make a decision, I can then consult God , meditate on the issue and make a better decision. Thanks for the good perspective, Bella.

    1. Hi Robbie, That’s so wonderful when we have someone to learn from. I have learnt patience from my mum. And I have tried it and got a lot better at it and it really makes you chill out about a lot of stuff. Have a lovely Sunday and a good week. Regards Bella

  3. Hello Bella,
    What a beautiful piece about Patience and making decisions.
    I can totally relate to how much better I feel, and better life and my interactions with others are when I pause or tell myself to see a situation in a new way. That prevents me slipping back into old patterns of reacting. With practise ( and patience) I’m noticing it’s becoming more my ‘new normal’

    Thank you, some lovely thoughts here Bella 🙋🏻🌈💐

  4. You are a sweetheart, Bella. Thank you! There’s a lot of wisdom here. My spiritual teacher J-R has put these phrases together, and they really resonate from my experience
    Relax and be patient.
    Let go and let God.

    🙂 🙂 Love what your heart speaks, & that you are here!
