There is a line in A Course in Miracles that says, “Infinite patience produces an immediate result.” It may seem to contradict itself at first glance, but looking at it from a spiritual perspective it makes total sense.
When we become overly attached to a specific outcome we feel frustrated or impatient because this or that hasn’t happened or the outcome is not the way we want it to be. We keep thinking and energetically focusing on what we don’t want instead of what we do want. And as the intelligence of the universe responds to energy—that is, our emotions—not what we say we want, the universe will keep providing us with what we don’t want instead.
As the saying goes, what we focus on will expand and grow. If we choose differently we can let go of that frustration and fixation; we can trust that the universe has our back. We know that what we want will come at the right time and place, and if it doesn’t, then something better will. With this “infinite patience” we completely let go of the need to have exactly what we want. It provides immediate relief from the feeling of lack. The chances are that what we want will then come to us naturally; as we are no longer focusing on what we don’t want, the universe can deliver to us what we do want.
There is no order of difficulty in miracles, and we are living in a miraculous universe. Science tells us that the world around us is made up of energy, and we all have the power and ability to influence the reality around us based on our emotions. Patience is truly a gift; it helps us to manifest and thrive in the world we live in.
Reflection for today:
What am I impatient about?
What would happen if I became more patient about these things?

The following is a video that expands further on this principle. I also talked about my personal journey on manifesting my relationship/marriage very quickly once I applied this principle – “Infinite patience produces immediate results” and when and how affirmation works for you.
- What does “Infinite patience produces immediate results” really means
- Why we need to let go of the fixation and frustration of the outcomes we want
- The universe only responds to our emotions, not our words
- My personal story of “How I met my husband”
- Why “Make it happen” is not the best strategy around
- Does affirmation actually work?
Hi everyone. So this week I’m going to talk to you about patience. So earlier this week I released a blog called The Gift of patience which is actually a part of my 21 days of inspiration daily wisdom for living an inspired life. It’s a free e-book on Amazon. And this is the passage taken from that book. And the passage is I talked about the gift of patience.
If you’re familiar with the Course in Miracles you may have heard of that very famous line infinite patience lead to immediate results. So the first time when I heard it, I thought that was pretty strange and contradictory. So what does that mean? It sparked my interest and sometimes a lot of wisdom or great discoveries come from a spark of curiosity. So I wanted to dig deeper.
Also, I’ve learned that from the Course in Miracles that there’s no order of difficulties in miracles. So whether it’s about manifesting a button or a castle, in a universal miraculous terms, that doesn’t matter. There’s no order of difficulty. It’s the same method in the same way to manifest your true desire.
Now infinite patience falls into the category of when you’re no longer fixated on the desired outcome in a particular form or a particular way of certain things to happen, the things you really wanted, when you let go of that fixation or that frustration. And when you practice infinite patience knowing that when it’s meant to be, when it is right time and right place that thing will come, if not, then something better will.
So when you have that sense of trust, when you have that infinite patience for the right and best outcome to occur to you, then what happens is that sometimes things just manifest very quickly when you let go of the resistance, when you let go of that frustration. I’m sure that have happened to you. It happened to me which I’m going to share a story as well. And the second thing will happen is that you may not care anymore, when you let go of that fixation and frustration.
It may sound very theoretical but ask yourself on the occasions when you just let go of that fixation or that frustration something immediately happened. Like you’re looking for a hairbrush or a ring or something, when you were looking for it hard, you could never find it. But then as soon as you stop, it usually showed up then. It happened to me many times as well.
So many years ago before I met my husband that was the time that I was seeing nobody. And there was a time that I want to have a really good relationship but I also know from my past experience that what relationship I do want and what relationship I don’t want. So I had a better idea because that I was a bit older. When I was actively seeking, I wanted it to happen now. But I haven’t met anybody for that type of relationship I want, it just didn’t work for me.
So it didn’t happen that way. I took a lot of time to think about this topic and that’s when I came across the Course in Miracles and a lot of other spiritual studies as well. And what I’ve learned from all of them is that it talks about patience and it talks about to be very clear about a desire. So I thought OK I just give this a go there’s nothing to lose.
When I truly let go of that fixation that frustration on the outcome that I really wanted, the way I wanted it to happen, I just change to think well it’s going to come if not now then later. There is no fixation of time as you can’t control time. So when I truly let go of it, something crazy happened. So there was a period of time that I was dating a lot of people, not at the same time, of course, but then nobody at all.
But I want a really good relationship appeared to me but I don’t want to force at the same time. So what happened was that I just let go after I learned these concepts and then the strangest thing happened.
Within weeks and I just suddenly realized that I was already in a dance team and a dance group and it was my hobby and I have a great group of friends and we were dancing a lot. And within the group actually my dance partner and I were having a great time.
We share a lot together and we’re friends and I just never thought there was more to it until three weeks after making that decision of letting go of what I think the outcome should be and when this should happen and fixated on it and frustrated about it. I just completely let go because I thought I’m going to practice this principle. Then I suddenly see him in a different light, I realized OK so maybe there’s something more to it. I just never thought about it. I just never saw it.
And then when I start to explore this idea you know and then before you know it. Suddenly we got together we actually found each other at a happy place and then relationship mature and now we’re married and have a baby too. But if I didn’t do that work if I didn’t let go of that frustration and fixation of what I wanted to happen and how it’s going to happened. I would never actually come to the realization that this person is actually here.
I just never saw him that way. So and then it really happened that infinite patience yield immediate results. So it worked for me in that sense and I know a lot of you out there may be thinking about how to achieve a goal or set up a career the way you wanted or write your book or find the right person in a relationship.
But this is a very important step to think about, first of all, you have to clarify your intention and what you really want and not so much about what you don’t want because a lot of times when we’re frustrated about the things we want to happen hasn’t happened. We’re beating the drums and talking a lot about the failed relationship the failed projects how did it happen. Why it’s me and its not fair, whatever. So you basically filled your vibration, your consciousness your mind all about why it didn’t happen and how it didn’t happen.
So that “didn’t happen” was louder than what are the good thing is happening. The universe response to your energy not your words. The universe respond to your emotions. So if your emotion is in a positive creative trusting place. Things that you hope to happy will happen a lot easier. So if someone wins a Olympic gold medal, the mindset of the performer is always about trusting this it’s going to happen and you try your best and you go.
You don’t think about what if my shoe laces undone or what if you know someone blocked my way or what if this and what if that ,or I didn’t win gold medal last time or all these things. You focus on who you are or what you can do to get yourself more prepared and ready in the zone and that’s it, you let go of the outcome, you go and run, and the same with whether it’s manifesting a relationship or try to write your book, don’t get stuck in this I’m not sure I’m good enough, if I am deserving it, or it didn’t happen last year or my last book or my last relationship didn’t work, etc.
None of this matter. If you wanted a better outcome. First of all, get clear and let go of the negatives and stay in the place to allow this to happen, so immediate patience yield immediate results. You feel relieved. And that’s really important to practice and keep in mind. So I hope this a little video will helps you to remember that. And then another thing about the “make it happen” strategy does not always work you know.
Yes I agree if you want to write your book or meet the guy you need to get out of the house or take out your notepad or your computer to start typing at some point. You need to take some inspired action that’s for sure. Nobody’s telling you to sit at home all day and you know don’t get confused. Being spiritual doesn’t you don’t get going or you don’t do things. No, not at all but it is about become very clear what is the best strategy and not the force it to happen.
You get very clear about what mindset that you need to have in order for things to happen easier for you and best for you. You know there’s no point to push the current relationship that is not working to make it the one that you’re going to marry. That’s not the smart strategy either. So “make it happen” doesn’t always work. In fact often it doesn’t. I do agree you need to take inspired action that before that you really got to have the clarity.
Allowing the sense of not fixated that the sense of trust the sense of you have patience because you know it’s going to happen if not this then something better. That will propel you to better yourself to get ready, to enjoy life and you know not wait for it to happen but living your best life and also take action to welcome it. To prepare for it.
Spirituality doesn’t make you dumber. It actually makes you more efficient and productive. I mean for me when I look back to the best things happened in my life whether it’s relationship or career or personal things it always come from learning spiritual studies and spirituality. I learned one of the really key ingredients and mindset for me to allow things to happen and to stay focused and stay center and stay at peace and be at ease with myself where things can happen naturally and sometimes I feel compelled to take rapid actions.
I do that then. And you feel good about that you don’t get frustrated because you are in a good place mentally. So this spirituality school of thought doesn’t trade off with your efficiency or success. On the contrary if anything I’ll credit everything that I have done or call it, authentic success are due to those spiritual principles and that’s the crux of everything I do.
The ideas of these principles about infinite patience or the sense that you know how the universe operate based on your emotions not your words. For examples, affirmations. If you don’t believe that, you don’t trust it, then when you just saying say I’m going to manifest my perfect mate but in your heart you’re like it is a joke. I’m no good, etc. Then it is never going to happen.
So unless you switch and shift that mindset and that the emotions, it’s all fake. Once you actually manage to change your mindset and shift your emotions and say those affirmation that reinforce that energy, that it will make a very critical difference and it will work for you.
I believe affirmations can work but you’ve got to believe. Perhaps you can fake it until you make it but you got to say things to yourself a bit more general so you’re more ease up about that, and then you go more specific. so in terms of affirmation if it is very specific and it’s something you absolutely do not believe, it doesn’t work. So start general with your affirmation before you can get specific without losing your believe in its possibility.
But you got be in the right mindset and emotion energy and that’s something we need to learn and practice and not just you know theorize and read about it you got to live that and apply it. So OK. Next week video is going to be about affirmation I suppose! I hope this video going help you to think about patience how to really achieve the outcome you want. Not forcing it to make it happen but get into the right mind space for this to happen.
So your mind is everything and then your body and your action will follow. So I hope this video gives you a little bit of information that is helpful to you. And next week I’ll talk to you again on something inspirational or transformational or maybe about creativity! So speak to you soon next week!
