Reflections of the Warrior of the Light

Maintaining one’s concentration

For the warrior of the light, nothing is abstract. Everything is concrete, and everything concerns him. He is not sitting in the comfort of his tent, observing what goes on in the world. The warrior of the light accepts each challenge as an opportunity to transform himself.

Some of his companions spend their lives complaining about the lack of choice, or commenting decisions which do not concern them. The warrior, however, turns thought into action.

Sometimes he errs his objective, and pays – without complaining – the price for his mistake. At other times, he strays from the path, and loses much time returning to his original destiny.

But a warrior is never distracted.

(excerpted from Paulo Coehlo’s blog)
