Take Your Time
Do you feel like all your spiritual endeavors leave you coming up short, or never amass to any kind of internal change? On The Huffington Post, Father John Bakas says, “God takes two days to make a mushroom; He takes 60 years to make an oak tree. Do you want to be a mushroom or an oak tree?” Whether or not you believe this literally, the analogy to life’s developments and the time they take is very insightful.
We live in a society that often aims for gratification obtained as quickly as possible, but if you want to live more spiritually, realize that the gratification will be gradual and slow-coming. Father John Bakas describes spirituality as “a life-long process, not static but dynamic,” something akin to planting a seed and seeing it through all of the stages with patience as well as determination.
Remember to never give up on your spiritual pursuits, because even if you aren’t aware of it, you are making progress. Have you experienced moments of frustration along the way? [The Huffington Post]
