In the face of a challenge, intended change or envisioned transformation, we set a series of events in motions by taking actions in order to obtain specific and taking place, mainly because we don't “see” that anything is changing.. outcomes. However, we tend to become discourage when . doesn't happen fast or quickly enough to our liking. We have the tendency to critically observe, judge and compare a situation and then often conclude that nothing actually is
Unfortunately - due to our undue haste - what we miserably fail to notice or even acknowledge, is that inner growth1) are in fact taken place… gradually and on its own time. But, because… there is seemingly nothing happening on the outside and everything seems to remain stationary, we loose all hope, become discourage and start to force things into … all for the sake of obtaining immediate results2) Our . and eagerness to obtain results… NOW, is a conditioned and entrenched state of mind - that more often than not - effectively “kills off” the intended result or outcome, long before it could develop, grow or evolve into full manifestation.
This kind of impatient-immediate-result-driven-eagerness and forceful-pressure is referred to as the 'egg syndrome', because…
Just as a fertilized egg, the form, shape (i.e. the eggshell) and behaviour of “the egg” remains static. The “seed” is planted “inside” and gradually develop, grow, evolve and mature into a living breathing chicken. Inside the egg, the “seed” is “preparing” to hatch. Should we interfere - due to our impatience and eagerness to speed things up - by “forcing the hatching process”, events or “heating things up”, we will “kill” the “chicken” long before it could reach maturity and hatch. Thus, please realize that . need to be digested and matured on the “inside” first, before the “transformative” behaviour, intent or attitude can effectively “ . ”.
Patience is a virtue. Patience is power. Patience is not an absence of action; rather it is all about timing… it waits for the right time to hatch!
Similar to the big squeeze… its takes inner effort, patience, time and preparation for things to “suddenly and miraculously” appear and become visible to the outside world. Bear in mind that no tree can carry healthy fruits when its root system is not properly established to provide it with the necessary nourishment - especially during tough times - and no plant will ever grow any faster by pulling on its leaves.
