The Kindness and Patience of Rhythms

Your soul knows the geography of your destiny. Your soul alone paces the map of your future.  It will take you where you need to go, but more important it will teach you a kindness of rhythm and patience in your journey.
               — John O’Donohue
I feel the gripping, self-induced pressures of time. Time dictates places for me to be and things for me to get done. I am caught up in things beginning and things about to end. My inner Alexa alarm chirps, "Time's up." 

Why this pace,
A cadence that drums
Me out of sync?
       ----G. Hill
Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.
          – A. A. Milne
Mountains reach high and in the fullness of time, are uplifted.
   ------G. Hill
Be patient with yourself. Self-growth is tender; it’s holy ground. 
There’s no greater investment. –
        ----- Stephen Covey

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. 
     ------Galatians 5:22-23
