How does patience protect you?

The power of patience explained by Leonardo da Vinci Leonardo da Vinci understood the power of patience.

“Patience serves as a protection against wrongs as clothes do against cold. For if you put on more clothes as the cold increases, it will have no power to hurt you. So in like manner you must grow in patience when you meet with great wrongs, and they will then be powerless to vex your mind.” ~ Leonardo da Vinci

With more patience I can be more compassionate; to both others and myself. With more compassion I can become more aware of love.

With more patience I am buying myself more time to find the best possible solution. With more patience I am protected from giving up too early. With more patience I am free to make mistakes (and correct them).

With more patience I listen to more. I understand more. With more understanding I am more aware. With more awareness comes more presence. With more presence comes more of my authentic self.

With more patience I take back the reins from the ego.

Patience protects against ignorance.
