Here is an excerpt from my book, Seven Steps to Inner Power:
“True patience is knowing the truth and expecting the truth to manifest. This knowing and expecting is the process of being your Silent Master Consciousness. Thus, when you express this true patience, you think as your Silent Master thinks. You keep the power turned on as you wait knowingly for the manifestation to appear at its appointed time.
These seven principles of inner power are all intimately related to each other. You cannot fully practice one without including the others. That is, to practice Body and Mind as One, you need to practice Truth, Purity, Love, Loyalty, Sacrifice, and Patience, also. In reality, there’s no such thing as, Today I’m working on purity. Each and every day, you work on all these principles.
As you make these qualities real in your everyday life, remember that what you are really practicing is your beingness, your selfhood, your Silent Master. You’re not asking yourself to be anything that’s not real or not possible. Your Silent Master is your only true self. As you are joyfully and expectantly practicing these seven principles, you are becoming your Silent Master. Unlike the caterpillar, usually we do not make our transformation in the darkness of a private space. Yet, ultimately, each of us is alone; each of us is a private individual. But we are alone together in a world of many people. Thus, our transformation is worked out in the world classroom. Much of our learning will be out in the open, composed of many small actions that will, step by step and moment by moment, create changes just as startling as the caterpillar’s transformation. One painting is composed of thousands and thousands of brush strokes.”
