PREPARE YOUR STORY CAREFULLY

Fiction is often much more conceivable, more tempting to reason, than reality.

The storyteller has the enormous advantage of knowing in advance what the audience wishes to hear. So, he prepares his story for his audience and public consumption carefully to make it credible whereas reality has the habit to settle down sooner than later.

HE IS NEVER PREDICTABLE

A warrior of light is never predictable.

He might dance down the street on his way to work, gaze into the eyes of a complete stranger and speak of love at first sight, or defend an apparently absurd idea. Warriors of light allow themselves days like these.

He is not afraid to weep over ancient sorrows or feel joy at new discoveries. When he feels that the moment has arrived, he drops everything and goes off on some long-dreamed-of adventure. When he realises that he can do no more, he abandons the fight, but never blames himself for having committed a few unexpected acts of folly.

A warrior does not spend his days trying to play the role that others have chosen for him.

CERTAIN MOMENTS REPEAT THEMSELVES

A warrior of light knows that certain moments repeat themselves.

He often finds himself faced by the same problems and situations, and seeing these difficult situations return, he grows depressed, thinking that he is incapable of making any progress in life.

‘I’ve been through all this before,’ he says to his heart.

‘Yes, you have been through all this before,’ replies his heart. ‘But you have never been beyond it.’

Then the warrior realises that these repeated experiences have but one aim: to teach him what he does not want to learn.

A PROLONGED WAR DESTROYS THE VICTORS TOO

A warrior of light respects the main teaching of the I Ching: ‘To persevere is favourable.’

He knows that perseverance is not the same thing as insistence. There are times when battles go on longer than necessary, draining him of strength and enthusiasm.

At such moments, the warrior thinks: ‘A prolonged war finally destroys the victors too.’

Then he withdraws his forces from the battlefield and allows himself a respite. He perseveres in his desire, but knows he must wait for the best moment to attack.

A warrior always returns to the fray. He never does so out of stubbornness, but because he has noticed a change in the weather.

PURPOSE IN LIFE

We all have purpose in life. If the purpose remains unserved, dying becomes unfulfilling. – Moazzam Shaikh #ObservingFreedom

TEACH YOURSELF

‘It’s odd,’ says the warrior of light to himself. ‘I have met so many people who, at the first opportunity, try to show their very worst qualities. They hide their inner strength behind aggression; they hide their fear of loneliness behind an air of independence. They do not believe in their own abilities, but are constantly trumpeting their virtues.’

The warrior reads these messages in many of the men and women he meets. He is never taken in by appearances and makes a point of remaining silent when people try to impress him. And he uses the occasion to correct his own faults, for other people make an excellent mirror.

A warrior takes every opportunity to teach himself.

– Paulo Coelho
