Reflections of the Warrior of the Light – Accepting one’s duty

Author: Paulo Coelho

By Paulo Coelho

A warrior of the light is reliable. He makes some mistakes, and sometimes considers himself to be more important than he really is. But he does not lie.

When people gather around the fire, he talks to his male and female companions. He knows that the words he utters will be kept in the memory of the Universe, as a record of what he thinks.

And the warrior reflects: “why do I say so much, if I am often unable to do everything I say?” This is an important matter for reflection.

The heart replies: “when you publicly defend your ideas, you will have to be strong in order to live up to them.”

It is because he thinks he is that which he says, that the warrior ends up becoming exactly that.
