There is a time for all things to come to fruition, says Megha Bajaj
I remember loving this phrase when we were studying Shakespeare in school. We would use it incessantly as crazy adolescent girls, but little did I know the spiritual significance it carried. Tarry a while simply means – wait a while. Pause. Stop. Delay. For some time. To us, such words sound like punishment. We are a generation of speed freaks. We cannot wait for two minutes for a page to load, we dislike buffering, if our phone battery is dead and we have to go for a few minutes without it – it seems almost catastrophic. However, the laws of Life do not follow our crazy need for speed – things happen when things happen.
One of the reasons for a lot of undue stress and illnesses is because we want certain things, and we want them N.O.W. It is not that prayers go unanswered – most prayers are answered – however Life works according to Life’s timings and not ours. It takes nine months for the baby to be strong enough to be born into the world. Premature delivery would harm it. A fruit, when it falls naturally off the tree is ripe, and full. Plucking it prematurely makes it bleed milk, and affects its taste. When a flight is delayed because of technical reasons, would you rather give it extra time to get ready, or would you prefer something going wrong mid-air?
Patience is a virtue, and we have to develop it. We need to learn to do what we must and then wait. Between a cause and an effect there is a little time span. Sowing the seed, doesn’t result in the sapling. All we can do is sow, nurture and wait. This waiting can be filled with anxiety, filled with anger and frustration or it can be peaceful. Your choice will determine the quality of your life. Whether we like it or not, waiting is an integral part of all our lives at all times. Even if a certain aspect of life is going full speed, there will always be another which is asking you to wait… to pause.
Personally, I have found much peace in gently whispering to myself: Tarry a while. Professionally I have come to realize there are two kinds of organizations – those that run fast, and then fall faster, and those that take time to build their roots, their foundation. They go slow, and yet steady. I have almost always noticed that such organisations leave a mark. With my own venture, I have realized that when something doesn’t go the way I want it to – it is not Life’s way of saying No – it is simply Life’s way of saying Not Yet. This simple shift has helped me remain calm when projects we’ve really worked on haven’t come through. In my experience, they usually do – in an even bigger way on a future date. To accept abundance too takes certain amount of readiness. To develop that readiness takes time.
When something doesn’t go the way I want it to – it is not Life’s way of saying No – it is simply Life’s way of saying Not Yet
With relationships, with health, with spirituality – waiting is a must. Sometimes when things have gone sour, if you keep trying to reaffirm the relationship it only creates a further mess. Space is needed at such times. Health is a long-term, slow process and overdoing will only lead to injuries. Spiritually too, He meets you at His timing, and not yours. In fact, peace and happiness hastens the process so, my friend, if something isn’t where it must be, smile to yourself – and whisper, Tarry, tarry a while. For all you know, it’s not a “no”, just a “not yet.”
