We can only start from where we are at. To wish to be somewhere else is foolish, if the present starting point is overlooked. Impatience to rush things can really slow the journey down, causing more missteps and hindrances. If the same starting place is arrived at everyday, well, patience is learned from perseverance and not giving up. Results in reality are secondary, since they can only come into being, after some new starting place is arrived at. Be at peace, our journey has meaning even if it is at times clouded by failure, frustration and temptation to despair. When in a dark place, then the choice to trust comes from a place deeper than the inner fog, storm or void. Grace works in ways we don't understand and cannot be contained by our plans or thoughts on how things should be.
