Reflections of the Warrior of the Light – Through and beyond

By Paulo Coelho

A warrior of the light notices that certain moments repeat themselves.

He often finds himself faced with the same problems and situations as before.

He becomes depressed. He begins to think he is incapable of making progress in life, the difficult moments having returned.

“I’ve already been through this”, he complains to his heart.

“It is true, you have been through it”, replies the heart. “But you never went beyond it.”

The warrior then understands that the repetition of experiences have one single purpose: to teach him that he has not yet learned.

He begins to seek out a new solution for each repeated struggle – until he finds a way of conquering.

    It is the circle of life. In order to stop repetition we have to change ourselves and the way we face things.Then similar situations may repeat themselves, but we will be more mature and things will be faced differently.. If we start thinking and acting as …Warriors of Light, then the circle will become a…pyramid leading us to the light. LOVE, Thelma

    Everyone should be aware of this truth, probably a fact is more correct, because the faith might be tuff as well in case you are pig-headed.Sometimes the lessons affect your life by putting is into fight for breath.
    The amazing is though that once you catch the wave events come back to you for another lesson very fast.

    Have the light into your hearts.

    Each simplistic act is here for the Warrior to grow up, the day he finds a way to overcome it.
    100 times he has entered into absurd anger, and one time he manages to stay calm, opens a door to a new comprehension of his path. Plus, how to react now face to people that used the faults the Warrior used himself.

    Relieving himself of a burden that failed him, the Warrior of the Light knows then, how to regognize that one. He can now work on another, knowing that his ego could fail him.
    Always working on his constancy and humility. Listening more than absolutely wanting to put forwards his qualities .

    The warrior witnesses he has got a great breathing space, but not so much right of mistakes.

    I am a Brazilian raised in America; we should all have two countries, not one (I believe Gore Vidal said it first)..our birth country and an adopted country; a very good way to enrich a warriors integrity. We must remember that we have individual lessons and the challenges that mass consciousness is assimilating; so that said, we are individually working on our own private issues and challenges and at the same time we are creating a solution for all beings; or not as has been the case; it seems to me that the Earth has provided enough for all, yet due to the fear, sorrow, anger, and a poverty mentality we continue in drudgery instead of dance. Please choose dance, see if it works for you as it has for me so we can have our mass consciousness moment of de-light.

    Yes learning from our mistakes helps us greatly to improve and go beyond in the next moment . .I think most people /and WOL have been burned -hurt had their fair share of people using them and so forth, but you have to go beyond the hurt and trust life again .See the lesson ,learn from it -certainly do not dwell on it – And find a way to solve it .Blessings Tania

    Isso é a pura verdade! Mas, quando descobrimos que as situaí§íµes se repetem, também aprendemos que elas se ví£o e por isso corremos o risco de ficar a espera da próxima situaí§í£o achando que no futuro poderemos estar melhor preparados!!!
    Muita paz e sorte!

    if you fail Algebra, you’re gonna have to take it again and again until you pass it, that is if you want to graduate!!!!

    very true indeed

  8. Joël says:

    We will be confronted with problems and it is to
    us to solve those problems with our talents and
    limitations until we die .We are daily learning how to react with certain problems and it is possible that we
    cann’t find a solution,the problem will continue until
    you understand the lesson.

    Beautiful — read that and it hit me hard with its perfect true!

  10. WENDY ESPINOZA says:

    It is so true
    how many times have we gone through the same experiences?
    like falling in love and getting our hearts broke.
    after a bad experience; we alaways say: i will never go through this again i refuse to get my heart broken once again… but then the inevitable happens.

    so a warrior of the light will take each experience and learn from it instead of getting depress,they will find “the solution for each repeated struggle until he finds a way of conauering”.

    All moments seem to repeat themselves if you believe that time is a perpetual circle. This isn’t the same as a vicious circle. You can step outside the circle anytime you choose and savor the perspectives of observer and participant in infinite games of life.

    Indescribable facets of Brida’s story awaken parts of me that had been dormant far too long.
