Yesterday it seemed so familiar, but today it seems a puzzle. I am sure that I hit the same button, but I don’t get the same results.
Perhaps it is not my place to be in charge. Stand back, take a breath, get a new angle. Or, get a good night’s sleep. Suddenly it works!
Pray to realize which are God’s chores and which are yours.
Read scripture for clarification. Read devotionals to make it an adventure.
Meditate. Can you see it happening? Use your imagination. See it happening. Your odds of success just doubled.
Warriors of Light are trained over time to realize success. At first they receive declaration of the mission. Often it is given a name. The warrior’s part is not to see the big picture but to follow orders in the plan.
There is great delight in being a “part of” rather than “apart from”.
“Forgiveness doesn’t justify what they did. It keeps it from destroying your heart.”
Praise, verbal and aloud helps a lot! Gratitude once again, takes the “sting” out of adversity. Rejoice that it isn’t your turn to face fault. That is worse. We arrogantly refuse to forgive ourselves.
Pray for a tender heart.
Read scripture to educate your heart.
Meditate. Be glad. Betrayal is really a great compliment.
You can’t steal from a Warrior of Light. Everything he owns He provides.
No need for regrets. The right attitude today improves our past, present and future. Childhood gets better including high school. The situation at hand is more comfortable. Hope shows its strength !
Pray for understanding of your role and declare it funded.
Read scripture and devotionals to center yourself.
Meditate. Relax. Breathe deeply. Listen to your breath for awhile.
Warriors of Light are careful with their words. A kind word and a smile can refresh the soul.
“It takes one half of a lethal dose to educate a human.”
We want to do it our way. We entangle ourselves in the “shoulds “and “oughts ” of life. Taking advice is hard ? Why ?
Pray for willingness. The willingness of a child learning how to find candy.
Read devotionals and scripture. “Taste and see the goodness of the Lord.”
Meditate. Sit still and be thankful for all that you have.
Worrier or warrior ? Your choice .
Warriors of Light practice trusting. Each day they find a new chance to trust earlier. Each day finds a new cause for joy.
“Pride and arrogance cloud our vision. Humility clears the view.”
Even the past looks better from a humble perspective. My childhood has greatly improved.
Pray for clarity and perspective.
Learn to forgive.
Read scripture to remind yourself who you are. Read devotionals and enjoy who you are .
Meditate on how you can carry this information to focus during your day.
Warriors of Light do not enjoy laziness . They use their down time for rest and preparation. They may be distant but the sounds of battle are clear
Perseverance allows us to build God’s qualities in our heart. Directed properly it establishes strength and fortitude.
Don’t give up on your dreams ! Follow your calling !
Pray for wisdom and discernment.
Read scripture and devotionals. Keep your sails set in the right direction.
Meditate. Visualize success and peace.
Warriors of Light must accept the weight of their equipment. It must be shouldered evenly for the long haul. The itch to shake it off and travel unfettered, wisely develops into use of and reliance on the tools carried in the pack.
Good choices result in good consequences.
I can see the results in people’s lives. They make choices and they have consequences. There are physical laws like gravity. Man’s laws like stop signs, and God’s laws like love your neighbor.
When we break any of these laws we suffer consequences. Not all consequences are immediate. We have the opportunity to use all these laws as guideposts for our freedom.
I know that I am free from waiting for the other shoe to drop when I have made good decisions. I have peace of mind. That’s worth more than several million dollars.
Pray. Read. Meditate.
Remove the things that block the Sunlight of the Spirit from shining through your life. Enjoy being a Warrior of Light!
What does a “Warrior of Light” mean?
A “warrior of light” is in my understanding a person with hope. Hope that he can be better; Hope that the world will be better; Hope that there is meaning; Hope despite the doubts and gloom that surround us often. He is not absolutely sure of himself or absolutely flawless. He knows that he is not perfect. He knows that the world is not perfect. But he does not give up the hope.
Gomathi Shankar, I want to live many lives in one life. Working towards it.
“Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not be faint.” ISAIAH 40:29-31
This strength is available to us. Hope is stronger that flood waters which wash everything away. Hope can wash away all that baggage, the rock that we have been willingly carrying around. Drop the rock!
Claim your peace. Claim your place. The chains around your arms have no shackles. That means they are not locked on you. Let them slide away with your new attitude. Attitude is an angle of approach.
Pray. Be humble. Read devotionals. Give thanks.
Help the people out today. Be kind when no one is looking. You are a Warrior of Light! Humility is your shield.
Warrior of the Light: A Manual (Amazon)
Manual of the Warrior of Light is a 1997 collection of Paulo Coelho‘s teachings originally published in various Brazilian newspapers between 1993 and 1996. It also includes proverbs, extracts from the Tao Te Ching, the Bible, the book of Chuang Tzu, the Talmud and various other sources. The enclosing narrative presents all this as if it were an actual handbook for a Templar or Paladin. As stated in the book’s summary, the Manual is for those who strive to meet their destiny and who want to ascend to a higher level of being.
Emmet Fox tells that the Golden Key is to think of God instead of our problems and worries. As soon as they come to mind, practice thinking about some aspect of God. We can reflect on His mercy or love or power. This is the key to letting God handle it. Try it!
Pray. Read. Think about God. Put others first today.
Warriors of Light!
