The discomfort of waiting you describe is a member of the Paradox family. Waiting is not hesitating or wasting time. In the story Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse, the hero mentions that he can do only three things well; waiting is one of these. It is obvious in how he engages the waiting that it is an act of faith —prepared, accepting, content. Otherwise known as the virtue of poised patience. We can still breathe with impeccable posture while waiting. We can still be enthusiastically attentive, engage our rituals, train our intent. While it may look like not much is happening, we are creating opportunity through quality of presence.
