Be patient in the middle of your longing

The following is an excerpt from a samvaad (dialogue) session with Acharya Prashant.

Questioner: Acharya Ji, Pranaam! Kabir Sahib says, “Are mann kahe dheeraj na dhare (O Mind! Why are you not patient).” And we are also told not to use one’s life like a waiting room.

How do I practice both these simultaneously?
