Patience-Compassion

images

From Wendy Farley’s The Wounding and Healing of Desire: Weaving Heaven and Earth: “If we do not first practice patience with ourselves, we leave the seeds of hostility in place and are slower to generate the spontaneous compassion that establishes intimacy between ourselves and others. The courage that allows us to be gentle enough with ourselves that we can see our foibles without condemnation is the same courage that opens us to the beauty of others-complete with their foibles and difficulties.”
