Reflections of the Warrior of the Light – Knowing when to say “no”

Author: Paulo Coelho

By Paulo Coelho

“Hitler may have lost the war on the battlefield, but in the end he gained something,” says M. Halter. “For in the 20th century man created the concentration camp and revived torture, and taught his fellow men that it is possible to turn a blind eye to the misfortune of others.”
Perhaps he is right: there are homeless children, innocent men in prison, lonely old people, drunks in the gutters, madmen in power.
But perhaps he is not right at all: there are warriors of the light.
And warriors of light never accept that which is unacceptable.
