Reflections of the Warrior of the Light – The right tolerance
by Paulo Coelho
A warrior of the light always keeps his heart clean of feelings of hatred. When he goes to fight, he always remembers Christ’s words: “love your enemies”.
And the warrior obeys.
But he knows that the act of forgiving foes does not force him to accept everything. A warrior cannot lower his head – otherwise he loses sight of the horizon of his dreams.
The warrior notes that the adversaries are there to test his strength, his persistence, his ability to make decisions. They are a blessing – because it is they force him to fight for his dreams.
It is the experience of combat which strengthens the warrior of the light
