warrior of light

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 manual for climbing mountains

Be happy when you reach the top: cry, clap your hands, shout to the four winds that you did it, let the wind - the wind is always blowing up there - purify your mind, refresh your tired and sweaty feet, open your eyes, clean the dust from your heart. It feels so good, what was just a dream before, a distant vision, is now part of your life, you did it!

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

Make a promise: now that you have discovered a force that you were not even aware of, tell yourself that from now on you will use this force for the rest of your days. Preferably, also promise to discover another mountain, and set off on another adventure.

Tell your story: yes, tell your story! Give your example. Tell everyone that it's possible, and other people will then have the courage to face their own mountains.

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

A man who chooses a religion is also choosing a collective manner
of adoration and of sharing the mysteries. Nevertheless, he alone is
responsible for his actions along the Way, and he has no right to
transfer to religion the responsibility for his steps and his
decisions.
