Our Friend says: It takes tremendous patience and faith to stay unravelling the truth of your inner being.



There are many references to Patience in Our Friend’s teachings but she has never actually taught specifically on the theme of patience.  It really is a foundational quality essential on this path of twists and turns, of ups and downs.  Without it there is little peace of mind and heart.  Whereas when we draw on the deep patience of spirit, life can unfold in its own time revealing the rightness of every moment.  Here are some sayings from Our Friend on the power of patience.


The voice of patience says: ‘I will stay with you until it is complete, until the issue is thoroughly and comprehensively brought into the vibration of love.’


Patience is really created within you when you are pushed and stretched beyond what you think you can endure.

Patience is an ally that you have at your disposal all the time so call on it and it will lead you into the heart of love.
