Manual of the Warrior of Light
|Warrior of the Light by Paulo Coelho (on Inkitt)|
If you were able to read my last entry in this blog categorized in Good Reads, the last entry was The Alchemist by, again, Paulo Coelho.
What I have was the 25th Anniversary edition of the said book and he gave a glimpse of the Warrior of the Light in the afterword. His idea of communicating to his readers is impeccable. He speaks for the people and what's within them, turn it into words; into characters and everything else becomes exquisite.
We are all Warriors of the Light. We are all capable of understanding the miracle of life, of fighting to the last for something we believe in - and as well, hearing the bells that the waves sets ringing on the seabed. That with all these, we can distinguish between the transient and the enduring.
We know that without inspiration and experience, no amount of training will help us.
And by the words of the one who is also and an indeed Warrior of the Light, Paulo Coelho:
A warrior of light know what he wants. And he has no need to waste time on explanations.
Victors never make the same mistake twice. That is why the warrior only risks his heart for something worthwhile.
These repeated experience have but one aim: to teach him what he does not want to learn.
Time works in his favour; he learns to master his impatience and avoids acting without thinking.
