As you lose your boundaries, you may notice more the boundaries that others keep, and you do not feel the peace you want to gain. You do not feel peace at all. In fact, you feel perturbed.
You may say to yourself: "How do these people who profess to Oneness have such a narrow vision?"
And so your impatience is stretched to the limits. And so you are breaking a remaining boundary, which is your annoyance and irritation with others. Their space may seem or be narrow, and yet you must allow others their boundaries. Do you see how your impatient thinking is a boundary that you must release?
Yes, boundaries exist, within you and everyone else. Right now, We are talking about you, beloveds. Break your impatience in two. Do not divide yourself from others whose perceptions may not keep up with yours. You must be aware that there are those who have held their tongues and who had great patience with you. You can see that now. Now it is your turn to gain and give patience.
I know you do bite your tongue, and I know how difficult this is for you. And now you must bite the tongue of your mind that roars against ignorance. Oh, yes, My dearly beloveds, you must lay out the red carpet even for ignorance. You, who so want Oneness, do not want to divide people into the wise or unwise, the right thinkers or the wrong. You will achieve, by and by, a state of existence when you are Patience Supreme in that you allow everyone the freedom to be at the state of existence where they happen to be. You will welcome their heart that beats, even when it beats under what you perceive as false colors.
Maintaining your equilibrium is especially hard for you when people in positions whom you would expect to have a greater vision do not have a greater vision.
As it is now, when someone in authority falls short, you also fall short in your mental dismissal of them. In effect, you want to reform them. Who is there really for you to reform? Who is it who must enlarge his thinking? When you make room for all, when you remember that all are My children with all the rights and privileges I grant, your impatience will not be so high and mighty, and you will enlarge your thinking.
Just as you would not correct everyone you meet whose speech or spelling misses the mark, so you must let go of correction. Will you kindly live up to your own premises?
I also ask you not to be so impatient with yourself. Have a little more acceptance of even your impatience. Your impatience could be the last thread that keeps you in ignorance, beloveds. Love even your impatience. Have great compassion for it. Once impatience has your patient acceptance, it will be easier for it to leave, and you will be able to give acceptance to what you presently do not. As you open the doors of acceptance, impatience can walk out.
One day you will look around, and you will no longer feel or see impatience. It won't be that you are patient either. You will see beyond fault. Your impatient gene will take a rest. You may see fallacy, and yet you will not find fault. Do not think that this is weakness on your part. This is a great strength. You will know when to speak up, and yet you will speak up without irritation. Irritation will no longer have a foothold in your life.
Can you imagine Buddha impatient?
