Reflections of the Warrior of the Light – Fighting the one you love

Author: Paulo Coelho

By Paulo Coelho

The warrior of the light sometimes fights the one he loves.

However, he often feels challenged by those whom he teaches the sword. His disciples call him to combat.

And the warrior shows his capability: with a few blows, he throws down the students’ weapons, and the harmony returns to the place where they are gathered.

“Why do that, if you are so superior?”, asks a traveler.

“Because, in this way, I keep open a dialogue,” answers the warrior.
