Pagan Virtues -- Patience

Monday, August 25, 2008
Probably one of the hardest things for anyone to learn. But also one of the most important lessons to learn. My spiritual teacher always talks about Wicca and the organic method. Meaning that things happen in the time and way they are supposed to happen, we just have to be patient enough to wait for it to happen. Now this doesn't mean that we can sit idly by and wait for the bills to be paid. Rather it is to take life one day at a time and to just let things flow.
For a long time I struggled against the flow of the Universe and the Gods, so I can attest to the fact that things will change and happen if we are just patient enough.
But how do we teach this to our children? You can start small. For example, in the Spring, my family is planning on buying a "butterfly from caterpillar kit". The act of waiting that my children are going to have to endure will be almost more than they can bear. But through waiting for the reward they will learn some small measure of patience.
I'm interested in hearing about different ideas from all of you. So go ahead and comment and let me know what you all think.
