Today’s Question by the reader : Carolyne

Author: Paulo Coelho

Just having finished reading Brida, I find myself touched and compelled to ask you this question. I believe I have been blessed and am living a life driven by the Tradition of the Sun, but what is the best way for me to rekindle the flame and its power in time of doubt and weakness?

I am at a transformative time in my life, therefore I may be experiencing the Tradition of the Moon, and feel the world’s energies channeling through me, which are leaving me physically weak and in need of guidance.

Whenever in doubt or feeling weak, you should first accept that this is an intrinsic part of life. Let this moment cross you, do not deny it – because if you do, you will be shutting a part of existence from your life.

Of course, there’s a time where you feel the need to move onwards and for this to happen, focus on the blessings and the path of light that stretches before you.

As a friend once said: “First, Count your blessings in this world, rather than turning everything down for paradise”.
