Reflections of the Warrior of the Light – The right renouncement

By Paulo Coelho

“In any activity, it is important to know what to expect, the means of obtaining the objective, and our capability for the proposed task.

“Only he who, thus equipped, feels no desire for the results of the conquest, and remains absorbed in the combat, can truly say he has renounced the fruit.

“One can renounce the fruit, but that renouncement does not mean indifference to the result.”

The warrior of the light listens respectfully to Ghandi’s strategy. And is not distracted by people who, incapable of achieving any result, are forever preaching renouncement.

    In poor words,the road is important,not the goal.Patience,wide eyes open,and the ability to detach a little from the problem,helps in taking the right decesion.Regarding those who preach renouncement,I have to say that many times only with a little courage you can be a winner,I myself experienced that more than one time.
