A Buddhist story about patience
Buddha and his disciples decided to go on a journey where they would pass through different areas and cities. One day, when the sun was shining in all its glory, they spotted a lake in the distance and stopped, beset by thirst.
When the Buddha arrived, he turned to his youngest and most impatient disciple, "I am thirsty. Can you get me some water from the lake?"
The disciple went to the lake, but when he arrived, he noticed that an ox cart was passing through the water, and the water slowly became murky. After this incident, the disciple thought to himself, "I can't give the master this murky water to drink." So he returned and said to the Buddha, "The water is very muddy. I don't think we can drink it."
After a while, perhaps half an hour, Buddha again asked the disciple to go to the lake and bring him some water to drink.The disciple did so. However, the water was still cloudy. He returned and informed the Buddha of the situation in a coherent tone: "The water of this lake cannot be drunk. We had better go to the village so that its inhabitants can give us something to drink."
Buddha did not answer him, but neither did he make any move to go further. He lingered on the spot. After a while, he asked the same disciple to return to the lake and bring him water. Not wanting to question his master, the latter went to the lake; however, he felt anger rising within him, not understanding why he had to return when the water was dirty and could not be drunk.
When he arrived, he was amazed to find that the water now looked fresh, even crystalline. So he took some of the water and brought it to his master. He looked at the water and said to his disciple, "What did you do to purify the water?"
The disciple did not understand the question. He had done nothing, it was obvious. Then Buddha looked at him and explained, "You wait and leave it alone. In this way, the mud settles by itself and you get clean water. Your mind is also like that! If it gets disturbed, you just have to let it be. Give it some time. Do not be impatient. On the contrary, practice patience. You don't have to make an effort to calm him down. The balance will find itself on its own. Things will take their course if you don't get lost."
