warrior of light

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on paulo coelho, paulo coehlo, wisdom, inspiration, life, warrior of light, and manual for climbing mountains

Learn from someone who has already been up there: no matter how unique you feel, there is always someone who has had the same dream before you and ended up leaving marks that can make your journey easier; places to hang the rope, trails, broken branches to make the walking easier. The climb is yours, so is the responsibility, but don't forget that the experience of others can help a lot.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on paulo coelho, paulo coehlo, wisdom, inspiration, life, warrior of light, and manual for climbing mountains

When seen up close, dangers are controllable: when you begin to climb the mountain of your dreams, pay attention to the surroundings. There are cliffs, of course. There are almost imperceptible cracks in the mountain rock. There are stones so polished by storms that they have become as slippery as ice. But if you know where you are placing each footstep, you will notice the traps and how to get around them.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on paulo coelho, paulo coehlo, wisdom, inspiration, life, warrior of light, and manual for climbing mountains

The landscape changes, so enjoy it: of course, you have to have an objective in mind - to reach the top. But as you are going up, more things can be seen, and it's no bother to stop now and again and enjoy the panorama around you. At every meter conquered, you can see a little further, so use this to discover things that you still had not noticed.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on paulo coelho, paulo coehlo, wisdom, inspiration, life, warrior of light, and manual for climbing mountains

Respect your body: you can only climb a mountain if you give your body the attention it deserves. You have all the time that life grants you, as long as you walk without demanding what can't be granted. If you go too fast you will grow tired and give up half way there. If you go too slow, night will fall and you will be lost. Enjoy the scenery, take delight in the cool spring water and the fruit that nature generously offers you, but keep on walking.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on paulo coelho, paulo coehlo, wisdom, inspiration, life, warrior of light, and manual for climbing mountains

Respect your soul: don't keep repeating "I'm going to make it". Your soul already knows that, what it needs is to use the long journey to be able to grow, stretch along the horizon, touch the sky. An obsession does not help you at all to reach your objective, and even ends up taking the pleasure out of the climb. But pay attention: also, don't keep saying "it's harder than I thought", because that will make you lose your inner strength.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on paulo coelho, paulo coehlo, wisdom, inspiration, life, warrior of light, and manual for climbing mountains

Be prepared to climb one kilometer more: the way up to the top of the mountain is always longer than you think. Don't fool yourself, the moment will arrive when what seemed so near is still very far. But since you were prepared to go beyond, this is not really a problem.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on paulo coelho, paulo coehlo, wisdom, inspiration, life, warrior of light, and statutes for life

Each human being has the right to seek out joy, joy being
understood as something which makes one content - not necessarily that
which makes others content.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on paulo coelho, paulo coehlo, wisdom, inspiration, life, warrior of light, and statutes for life

The only faults considered grave are the following: not respecting
the rights of one's neighbor, letting oneself be paralyzed by fear,
feeling guilty, thinking one does not deserve the good and bad which
occurs in life, and being a coward.

We shall love our adversaries, but not make alliances with them.
They are placed in our way to test our sword, and deserve the respect
of our fight.
