The art of waking up

Author: Paulo Coelho

Paulo Coelho

The warrior of the light is waking from his sleep.

He thinks: “I don’t know how to deal with this light, it makes me grow.”

Nonetheless, the light does not disappear.

The warrior thinks: “changes will have to be made that I don’t have the will to make.”

The light continues there – because “will” is a very tricky word.

So the warrior’s eyes and heart begin to grow used to the light.

He does not get scared; he begins to accept his Legend, even though it means running risks.

The warrior has been sleeping for a long time. It is only natural that he wakes up little by little.
