This Zen story is about the virtue of patience.   Zen has a rich tradition of telling stories so that the listener gathers their own understanding and then apply it to their own life.

Patient
Patient is power. If you have patient. You can achieve what you want and effectively.

Real realizing R E A L☯️
Staying calm when you want to explode is most important because you say and do hurtful things to the people you love the most. I act out of anger & resentment almost instantly and I need to learn how to stop before I speak.. hearing this reminds me of how calming nature is & how beautiful it is to be able to spot your crazy for maybe the first time and realize how insane I really am. I have to learn how to just “pause” for a moment and not speak out of my ass so I can stop acting on complete impulse ♾☪️

🌅Patience🌅
I am quite honestly the most impatient person in the world. While this may be a slight exaggeration, I still am without a doubt abnormally inpatient. This story not only highlighted the need for patience in life, but also was short, sweet, and to the point. This is exactly what I needed to hear, and I hope that I will remember this when I truly need it.

Working Hard & Patience
Doing things with patience and care reap more benefits than rushing through them.

whats the rush?
As I listened to the story, I thought of how desperately I want to suceed in my career yet Im so afraid of failure. I want to fast forward the process. Right now as I look at my 5 month old sleeping, Im remembering how much of a challenge that was ( and still is and will be in the future) but oh man have I learned and appreciated and loved each and every experience. Growth is amazing, accompanied by positive mindset. Will work on practicing mindfulness and gratitude.

Work with purpose not with goals
I used to work and do things while only thinking of the end result and not actually being as present as I should have for the actual work, it makes the work so much more meaningful when you are present and enjoying the progress whether it is slow or fast

if you only look for the end result in everything you do, the end result will take longer to come to you. this is because you are missing the process, the climb, the struggle, and without these things growing will become harder

Accelerated learning
The more pressure you put on yourself to achieve and accomplish, the longer the path to completion and success? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I learned that patience is key and that good things will come if you work are but also you need to understand that it takes time for good things to come.

Change
I think I am mostly an egg but I would like to be a coffee bean. I have been handed a lot of adversity right now and it is a change but I am trying to make it a change that I want.

Be aware that great things take time and practice to master... Or you may never master it but always be continually learning and growing. Having an open heart and mind is often the best part

The relationship between patience and Hardwork
The lesson I learned from this story is the truly working hard requires patience and that if I really want something that requires time and effort I have to be willing to put the time inIn order to master it no matter how long the given task may take. I have learned I have learned this lesson the hard way many times . this is particularly true for me in regards to academic work. Sometimes I putImmense pressure on myself to complete assignments in a short amount of time again I get very ambitious I’ve been sending goals I’ve been sending goals that are impossible for me to complete in a single day. This problem is further exacerbated by the fact but I have a disability. It sometimes takes me longer to complete a task because I need to do things in a different way I have come impatient when I see my Nondisabled peers complete complete task complete task at a faster rate than I can same to keep up hey Steven hasn’t even even at times has it affected my health. Hard work with the patients,, hard work with the patients will just burn you out will just burn you out and make it less productive I know from experience. I truly believe that if I’d heard this story add the other time in my life it would have saved me A lot of stress it reminds me very much of the sob story about the tortoise and the hare the tortoise what’s the time in the end trains because of patience is contrasted with the hair eggs again run a whole race based on skill alone you have no interest training and eventually burns out causing the tortoise to beat him. I am grateful for the people who work for this app for reminding me The importance of patients and pacing yourself well working hard. I am prescient this story is there to help others learn to be patient while shaving golfers well allowing them not to learn that lesson the hard way this story will help so many. I am also exceedingly grateful for the community on this app for taking the time to read this post I hope everyone in this communityIt’s OK and happy and well.
