Reflections of The Warrior of The Light – Accepting Pardon

Author: Paulo Coelho

By Paulo Coelho

The warrior of the light has learned that it is better to follow light. He has betrayed, lied, strayed from his path, courted darkness. And everything continued to work out – as if nothing had happened.

However suddenly the abyss comes. One can take a thousand safe steps – and one single step too much can destroy everything.

It is this consciousness which causes the warrior to change the course of his steps.

Upon making this decision, he hears four comments: “You always acted wrongly. You are too old to change. You are no good. You are not worthy.”

So he looks skywards. And a voice says: “well, dear friend, everyone has done wrong. You are forgiven, but I cannot force this pardon. You must decide.”

The true warrior of the light accepts the pardon.
