Reflections of the Warrior of the Light – In difficult moments of silence in life

By Paulo Coelho

The warrior knows that sometimes the combat is interrupted. It is no use forcing the struggle; one must be patient, wait for the forces to confront each other once again.

In the silence of the battlefield, listen to your heartbeat. Note how tense it is. That it is afraid.

The warrior takes inventory of his life: he sees that the sword is sharp, the heart satisfied, and faith fires his soul. He knows that maintenance is just as important as action.

There is always something missing. The warrior makes the most of moments in which time slows down, to better equip himself.

    Silence for me is very important.It is a time for me to listen to my heart what it wants to say to me.During reflections I always want to seek refuge of my own solace and spend quality time alone.Sometimes,when my husband and I have our walk along the seashore we’re just enjoying the moment in silence,sea,sunset,sand,and being together.

    Nagmahal sa kanunay,(Loving you always)

    Hmm… “the healing power of silence”, like the book I’ve read.
    If God is..Silence…then when we dive in the ocean of silence we can ..find God..and find ourselves.

    There are silences that give vertigo.
