during this last week we experienced the powerful influence of a second Super Full Moon, an energy field that keeps building up as there is still more to come from the stellar impacts. The Taurus Full Moon has brought us the powers of grounding, lasting stability and a chance to learn about perseverance. The bull is in the zodiac an earth sign, deeply bound to experiencing life as a step by step process, an ability that every human being is better of to lean over time. One thing we can train with the Taurus energies, is to show patience. To walk the talk in the pace that we truly can carry right now. Not to allow our patient carrying to turn into laziness, but to humbly follow the signs that over time lead us to our authentic manifestations.
The dictionary describes patience as the bearing of provocation, annoyance, misfortune, or pain, without complaint, loss of temper, irritation, or the like. An ability or willingness to suppress restlessness or annoyance when confronted with delay. And when we consciously work with patience: a quiet, steady perseverance; even-tempered care; diligence.
So it becomes clear very quickly that if we desire to cultivate perseverance, we first have to dig our heals into leaning to be patient. Persistence is a steadiness in our course of action, a stable and regular will to follow the path of our purpose, a state of mind, a humbleness that keeps listening to the divine guidance of our personal divine blueprint for our soul, especially in spite of difficulties, obstacles, or discouragement. It is the ability to experience life in continuance in a state of grace, which leads us over time to eternal salvation. Below I gathered for you the voices of many wise people, sharing with us the wisdom they gained about perseverance in life.
“Children have a lesson adults should learn, to not be ashamed of failing, but to get up and try again. Most of us adults are so afraid, so cautious, so ‘safe,’ and therefore so shrinking and rigid and afraid that it is why so many humans fail. Most middle-aged adults have resigned themselves to failure.”
― Malcolm X
“Sure I am this day we are masters of our fate, that the task which has been set before us is not above our strength; that its pangs and toils are not beyond our endurance. As long as we have faith in our own cause and an unconquerable will to win, victory will not be denied us.”
― Winston S. Churchill“You got up off the bathroom floor. That’s a start. Now, just stay off the floor. After all—aside from winning the lottery—all any of us can ever really hope for is more days spent standing tall than spent in pieces on the floor.”
― Sarah Spann
“The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.”
“In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins, not through strength but by perseverance.”
― H. Jackson Brown Jr.
“Remember the two benefits of failure. First, if you do fail, you learn what doesn’t work; and second, the failure gives you the opportunity to try a new approach.”
― Roger Von Oech
“Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.”
― Dale Carnegie
“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.”
― Maya Angelou
“Courage and perseverance have a magical talisman, before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into air.”
― John Quincy Adams
“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”
― Nelson MandelaDear Ones, I hope by now you made discipline and faith regular guests on your path to awakening. Some of the things we are planting need years to emerge, others we will see breaking through the ground in only some hours, but it is always on us to believe in the inner powers we have to bring the true desires of our soul into manifestation. What we feed with our love, our devotion, prayers and perseverance in thoughts and actions, will appear on the material plane.
Grounding Blessings and Love!
