Self-transformation happens over time, not overnight. Stay consistent and patient, and it will happen.
It’s easy to get wrapped up in the day-to-day mechanics of your meditation practice that it’s difficult to notice a substantial change over the long run. But as long as you set aside time to do the work each day and recognize that patience is an integral part of the process, change will come.
Whether it comes as the result of a reflection, an in-the-moment realization, or even from the observations of others, it will happen.
Positive shifts from within take time to cultivate and nurture – some more than others. And once they come to fruition, not only will you reap the benefits of your hard work, but others around you will, too.
