Paulo Coelho’s The Manual of the Warrior of Light

on May 13, 2010

A warrior of light values a child’s eyes because they are able to look at the world without bitterness. When he wants to find out if the person beside him is worthy of his trust, he tries to see him as a child would.

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

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

The warrior knows that he is free to choose his desires, and he makes these decisions with courage, detachment and sometimes, with just a touch of madness.

A warrior of light does not rely on strength alone, he makes us of his opponent’s energy too.

A warrior of light never resorts to trickery, but he knows how to distract his opponent.

A warrior of light knows what he wants. And he has no need to waste time on explanations.

A warrior of light sometimes fights to those he loves.

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

A warrior of light knows that certain moments repeat themselves.

A warrior of light is never predictable.

Warriors of light always keep a certain gleam in their eyes.

The warrior of light does not worry that, to others, his behavior might seem quite mad.

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

The warrior of light remembers a passage from John Bunyan: ‘Although I have been through all that I have, I do not regret the many hardships I met, because it was they who brought me to the place I wished to reach. Now all I have is this sword and I give it to whomever wishes to continue his pilgrimage. I carry with me the marks and scars of battles – they are the witnesses of what I suffered and the rewards of what I conquered.’

A warrior of light carefully studies the position that he intends to conquer.

A warrior of light knows his own faults. But he also knows his qualities.

The warrior of light knows that no one is stupid and that life teaches everyone – however long that may take.

Enthusiasm and training are not enough to win: what counts is experience.

MIRAGE

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a persistent one. So get a few laughs and do the best you can. Don't have an ideal to work for. That's like riding towards the mirage of a lake.
