Reflections of the Warrior of the Light – The small things

Author: Paulo Coelho

By Paulo Coelho

The warrior of the light pays attention to small things, because they can get in the way.

A thorn, however small, causes the traveler to interrupt his journey. A small and invisible cell can destroy a healthy organism. The memory of an instant of fear in the past, can often cause cowardice to return each morning. A fraction of a second is enough to lower the guard for the enemy’s fatal blow.

The warrior is attentive to small things. Sometimes he is hard on himself, but he prefers to act in this way.

“The devil resides in small things,” says an old proverb of the Tradition.
