In Brida, a book that I wrote back in 1990, there are two ways to recognize your soulmate. Through Magic – meaning : entering a state of transe in which you can see a bright spot over the shoulder of your soulmate – or, by taking risks, by making mistakes, by being with the wrong people until you find your soul mate.
So here is my question: Would you try to find your soul mate through magic or by taking risks, making mistakes?

Reflections of The Warrior of The Light – Accepting Pardon

By Paulo Coelho

The warrior of the light has learned that it is better to follow light. He has betrayed, lied, strayed from his path, courted darkness. And everything continued to work out – as if nothing had happened.

However suddenly the abyss comes. One can take a thousand safe steps – and one single step too much can destroy everything.

It is this consciousness which causes the warrior to change the course of his steps.

Upon making this decision, he hears four comments: “You always acted wrongly. You are too old to change. You are no good. You are not worthy.”

So he looks skywards. And a voice says: “well, dear friend, everyone has done wrong. You are forgiven, but I cannot force this pardon. You must decide.”

The true warrior of the light accepts the pardon.

Today’s Question by Aart Hilal

You have tried many ways of expressing yourself through art. Why have you finally chosen writing?

It was in fact my first choice, but I postponed it for several decades, thinking that it was impossible to be a writer. Finally, after the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, I decided to quit everything else and pay the price of the only dream that I truly had.
