Reflections of the Warrior of the Light

Author: Paulo Coelho

By Paulo Coelho

A warrior of the light does not only use his strength; he also uses his opponent’s energy.

Upon entering a combat, all he possesses is his enthusiasm, and the moves he learned during training; as the fight progresses, he discovers that his enthusiasm and training are not enough to win: experience is necessary.

So he opens his heart to the Universe, and asks God to inspire him, so that each of the enemy’s blows is also a lesson in defense for him.

His companions comment: “see how superstitious he is. He has stopped the fight in order to pray, and respects his adversary’s tricks.”

The warrior of the light pays these provocations no attention. He knows that without inspiration and experience, none of his training will bear fruit.
