Assemblage Op. 9 (Kneeling in the Snow) by Simple Not Simpler published on 2013-01-05T22:09:29Z Patience: We need to be patient with ourselves. This means being patient with our bodies - with illnesses and the process of aging. It also means being patient with our spiritual progress. Because we have a body, we are prone to illness, aging, and eventually death. This is how it is.
