THE WARRIOR CHOOSES HIS ENEMIES

According to a poet: ‘The warrior of light chooses his enemies.’

He knows what he is capable of; he does not have to go about the world boasting of his qualities and virtues. Nevertheless, there is always someone who wants to prove himself better than he is.

For the warrior, there is no ‘better’ or ‘worse’: everyone has the necessary gifts for his particular path.

But certain people insist. They provoke and offend and everything they can to irritate him. At that point, his heart says: ‘Do not respond to these insults, they will not increase your abilities. You will tire yourself needlessly.’

A warrior of light does not waste his time listening to provocations; he had a destiny to fulfill.

MUCH TO BE GRATEFUL FOR

A warrior of light knows that he had much to be grateful for.

He was helped in his struggle by the angels; celestial forces placed each thing in its place, this allowing him to give of his best.

His companions say: ‘He’s so lucky!’ And the warrior does sometimes achieve things far beyond his capabilities.

That is why, at sunset, he kneels and gives thanks for the Protective Cloak surrounding him.

His gratitude, however, is not limited to the spiritual world; he never forgets his friends, for their blood mingled with his on the battlefield.

A warrior does not need to be reminded of the help given him by others; he is the first to remember and he makes sure to share with them any rewards he receives.

– Paulo Coelho
