“The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.”

Leo Tolstoy

Good morning peeps, meditation done.
 
 Quote for the day:

“The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.”

Leo Tolstoy

Leo Tolstoy was a Russian writer who is regarded as one of the greatest authors of all time.

Born to an aristocratic Russian family in 1828, he is best known for the novels War and Peace (1869) and Anna Karenina (1877).

Tolstoy’s ideas on nonviolent resistance, expressed in such works as The Kingdom of God Is Within You, were to have a profound impact on such pivotal 20th-century figures as Mohandas Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr and James Bevel.

War and Peace is generally thought to be one of the greatest novels ever written, remarkable for its dramatic breadth and unity. Its vast canvas includes 580 characters, many historical with others fictional. The novel explores Tolstoy’s theory of history, and in particular the insignificance of individuals such as Napoleon and Alexander.

Somewhat surprisingly, Tolstoy did not consider War and Peace to be a novel, he thought that Anna Karenina was his first true novel.

Virginia Woolf declared him “the greatest of all novelists.”

I am an Aries and naturally a very impatient person, I want everything to have been done yesterday.

But to achieve something truly great in life as Tolstoy did with his writing takes patience and time, literally years and years of paying painstaking attention to every little detail of your art

Patience and taking my time is something I have had to learn with age and taking up yoga and meditation ten years ago and learning to control my breath has really helped me.

To master yoga takes years, as does anything worth doing, but to master yoga takes a lifetime. As I have said I have been doing yoga ten years, but in the grand scheme of things I consider myself a novice compared to the true greats of yoga and I will continue to study and practice yoga and controlling my breath with exercise and meditation everyday for the rest of my life in the pursuit of excellence and self improvement physically and mentally on top of everything else I have learnt from a lifetime of practicing sport, dance and physical exercise for pleasure and my profession.

Along the way I will continue to share as much of what I have learnt with as many people as possible, through teaching, writing and filming.
