Every Warrior of the Light has felt afraid of going into battle.

Every Warrior of the Light has, at some time in the past, lied or betrayed someone.

Every Warrior of the Light has trodden a path that was not his.

Every Warrior of the Light has suffered for the most trivial of reasons. Every Warrior of the Light has, at least once, believed he was not a Warrior of the Light.

Every Warrior of the Light has failed in his spiritual duties.

Every Warrior of the Light has said ‘yes’ when he wanted to say ‘no.’

Every Warrior of the Light has hurt someone he loved. 

That is why he is a Warrior of the Light, because he has been through all this and yet has never lost hope of being better than he is.

By Paulo Coelho.

    Allah is the Light [2996] of the heavens and the earth, [2997]
    The parable of His Light is as if there were a niche,
    And within it a Lamp: The Lamp enclosed in Glass; [2998]
    The glass as it were a brilliant star; [2999]
    Lit from a blessed Tree, [3000]
    An Olive, neither of the East nor of the West, [3001]
    Whose oil is well-nigh luminous, though fire scarce touched it; [3002]
    Light upon Light!
    Allah doth set forth parables for men: and Allah doth know all things.

    surah 24:35 Al Nur (The Light)
    (Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur’an, 1989.)

    Susan,

    Everyone is a Warrior, including you. But this Warrior has been suppressed due to materialism and has been crying out loud to be re-born. This Warrior is there in your heart if only you seek her/him with honesty and humility.

    If you have the time, read this book: The Sacred Journey of the Peaceful Warrior – Dan Millman
