Like an ancient old growth forest, where the subtle play of light, texture and shadows is the product of a process measured in centuries and inches; most things of lasting value develop gradually at their own pace. The ability to learn from experience ~ one of humanity's greatest capacities ~ implies constant yet gradual progress.
The combination of stillness within and determination without, are the essence of this. Good things sometimes sprout quickly; the truly delightful take much longer. You cannot expect anything. Development must be allowed to take its proper course and allotted time; events must neither be rushed nor manipulated, but allowed to unfold naturally.
In this way, you will come to enjoy the joys of life.
