Being attentive

The warrior of the light knows the silence which precedes an important battle.

And this silence seems to say: “things have stopped. Better forget the fight, and enjoy oneself a little.”

Inexperienced combatants put down their weapons at that moment, and complain about the boredom.

The warrior is attentive to the silence; someplace, something is happening. He knows that destructive earthquakes come without warning. He has walked through forests at night; whenever the animals make no noise at all, danger is near.

While the others talk, the warrior practices his swordsmanship and pays attention to the horizon.
