Question 32: How patient must I be?
is a 'Virtue' but when you need or require something, then your
patience runs out, but the law of attraction states the more you want
something, then, the opposite will happen, and you will not get what you
want, so you have to have total trust in Hashem, and remember that,
'The Past' 'The Present' The Future' is all one time, and therefore one
must be Patient at all times
Rabbi Schwartz :
main purpose of our desires is not that we may reach them -- that we
may have them all. Rather, it is that they may help us mold our
character, becoming the person who strives for such goals, and is the
person who deserves to have his desires met. This thought then explains
why we must wait before receiving all that we want. It tells us that we
are not yet ready to receive all our desires. Now, mostly, this does
not apply to needs like food, clothes, housing, etc., things we need
right now; these are wants that we have been ready for from our
youngest years. Rather, it is the desires that help us reach our
lifetime goals and targets.
Thus our patience becomes for us
most useful and admirable. For, with patience we learn how much further
we still need to go -- how much further we still need to grow.
patient does not mean that we should dampen our desires in any way. On
the contrary, our patience tells us that the stronger our desire, the
more we will push to become the person we need to be and thereby
receive all that we want to have. It tells us that our desire is our
most powerful motivator for personal growth. Furthermore, it helps us
realize that all we want, we receive only from Hashem, and as such, we
must strive throughout our lives to please Him.
