Waiting is part of being human.
The longing and yearning somehow humanizes us.
There is something about life today though that is averse to waiting.
We want everything now: instant gratification.
That explains a lot of the anger, anxiety and ambivalence we see today.
I remember watching Becket’s “Waiting for Godot” and experiencing all that angst.
What if God-ot never comes?
What is there is no God-ot?
What is he comes and I do not recognize him?
What am I suppose to do when he comes?
What am I really waiting for?
It is questions like these that make us human.
