    I think that the warrior of the light is the last person to lose faith, for a warrior never give up, never surrender under any Circumstances, may be only us some time we question faith or better say life.

    For example where is GOD in these hart days of humanity, our day are full with images of war, poverty, luck of resources in many countries, people, Woman and children starving dying of hunger, how can we turn or stop this wheel of destruction.

    May this blog is a way to star turning the wheel in a more positive and loving direction and hopefully the entire world can see the light of the warrior one day and never give up on each other.

    Thank you Don Pablo for have the courage to ask the hard question, you are making us all been better humans been.

    your comment is the best!
    mr. coelho, I wonder how you could write books that makes me get more interested in the book, because not much books gets me interested. I only read the Alchemist, but that book was really fun and I was really wondering what Personal Legond meant, but now I understand. Please make more fun and exciting books!!

    The teacher has a responsibility for his actions, like everybody else. Certainly he will have to bear the consequences of different people eating the fruits that he offers.

    We are human beings, we have flaws, weaknesses and unfortunately, there are moments when everything seems to go in a wrong direction. Why is that? Because then we set our minds, our attention, our hearts only on what we don’t like. We believe that achieving one goal, we will feel better. Yes, it’s true, but for how long? And then we start all over again: expectations, disappointments, expectations, disappointment, a pattern we know too well.
    I have received an e-mail from a friend who has changed her job and I really thought her life is better now, after quitting her old job. But she complains about the salary, about the fact that even though she has a better job now she is not satisfied; she hasn’t got the initiative to quit nor the determination to go on. She is trapped somewhere in the middle. And I believe this is exactly the feeling we have when we don’t have faith anymore, when we don’t believe in the Power of Good, in ourselves. We are trapped in our lives, somewhere in between, reality, dreams and illusions get mixed up in our heads.
    But what we forget is that satisfaction can never last when it is sustained only by exterior happenings. It has to come from the inside, from our souls. Firstly, we should feel joyful, without an exterior motivation, and then joy will come also under exterior disguise. We should feel prosperous and thankful first in the interior and then abundancy will come to us from outside too. We should love first and then we will be loved and so on.
    You cannot materialize what you don’t have and cannot feel.
    I put this idea in practice and it works wonderfully, not only in theory. It is a universal concept and law and it functions even if we accept it or not.
    When we don’t find faith, we should look for hope! :-) That will help; everything will improve tremendously! But it’s always a matter of personal choice and determination to overcome all obstacles for the sake of Light… Who chooses this path knows that it is not an easy one to follow but it is surely not a dead-end either.

    Love and appreciation,
    Carmen Larisa

    dear paulo,

    some quotations from great MIRZA GALIB i write below, plz display this page in your blog.

    yeh na thi hamari kismat, ke visale yaar hota,( visale-yaar- meeting with lover)
    agar aur jeete rehte, phir bhi intzar hota

    koi mere dil se pooche,ke teerenikash ko
    yeh khalish kahan se hoti, jo jegar ke par hota

    hum bane hain dost, NA-Se
    yeh kaisi dil lagi hai, ????

    pRASHANT hARIT

    There is no human being under the sun, who always has faith. Having doubts is a human characteristic. In some situations our ability of having doubts can save our life. But you should not be ruled by doubts.

  12. aditya says:

    whatever the wol can do he does, for rest of his hope he has faith.

    a wol is a human being and part of being human is to be able to doubt.

    thanks Paulo for brightening up this space once again.

  13. Tania Chilby says:

    Sometimes our faith goes out the window,I think that this is normal ,we feel like we have been abandoned , But it is US that seperates ourselves from God , our creator is always available ,we disconnect or loose faith due to a fear /doubt crisis grief etc..But we have to be the ones to get it back again,If I don’t connect on a daily basis ,everything is out of balance and flow, when you are part of the universe ,you can dance !! Blessings Tania

  14. ANLAO says:

    … the strength of faith reveals itself when faith is found. Or, how can it get stronger if it’s not found, and how can you fins something without losing it first?

  15. Ranjeet says:

    Its true that a warrior loses faith. Faith in what he is doing, faith in people, faith in God’s blessings and sometimes faith in his very own existence.

  16. Evespring says:

    He does not always have faith but he certainly always has company!

    Keep the faith Paulo, when it appears…
    love.

  17. A.V.C. says:

    To distinguish faith from hope, I think that faith has to built upon a personal Knowledge of the universe.

    We can only have faith in something, if we Know that it is there.

    But some days we experience doubt, and doubt is useful to the learning process.

    Because the learning process includes setting up a basic structure, then breaking it down, only to pick up the pieces and remount it in a different way.

    In this way we approach the Light.

    In faith and doubt.

    The Warrior of Light does not always have faith, but (s)he concentrates on the small miracles of daily life and (s)he knows that (s)he has much to be grateful for.

    Dear Paulo,

    I would say it’s true, but not exactly.
    For me it’s not faith, because I think that faith I might have, even if it’s sometimes dimmed a little.
    I would say that I’m not always in high spirits,
    but even that can make you upset and low.
    Can make you cry or feel lonely.
    I often ask the question, why is that?
    Why one day you can feel so uplifted, so full of positive energy, so full of love,
    and the next day it’s the opposite?
    Well, maybe it is faith, but not faith in God, rather
    faith in yourself, faith in other people,
    faith in better tomorrow.
    These bad moments when we loose hope, when we loose smile and everything is full of nothing can be somehow the reaction of loosing faith…
    though it is hard to explain it.
    Probably it is happening so we can see the difference between good and bad,
    between happiness and sadness,
    so we can appreciate every given moment of love,
    of friendship, of kindness, of happiness.
    Every smile.:-)

    It’s worth to remember that, but we not always do.
    Probably because we’re not angels, :-)
    we’re human beings,
    even if we often want to act like them, :-)
    and
    we’re not in haven,
    yet.:-)
    I have faith in one thing though,
    some day we will be.

    love
    Agnieszka
