Have you ever noticed that when you are impatient with yourself or someone else, it is actually a disguised form of mental attack?
Thoughts like, “Why can’t she hurry up?” or, “Why is he taking so long?” or even, “Why can’t I just finish this already?” seem harmless, but they are unloving judgements we make about ourselves or others. When we judge, we are immediately on the defensive, operating from a place of anger and not love.
Would you consider the idea that it is high time we no longer see any value in attacking others or ourselves?
If so, hold those unloving impatient thoughts in your mind the second they form, and turn them into loving thoughts about the person that inspired them.
