Warrior of the Light: A Manual

Warrior of the Light: A Manual (a birthday gift from my daughter) reads like a series of short devotionals for actual and spiritual warriors.  My take is that author, Paulo Coelho, would say there is no difference between the two.  Here is one from a couple of days ago that struck me. 


First: God is sacrifice.  Suffer in this life and you will be happy in the next.

Second: People who have fun are childish.  Remain tense at all times.

Third: Other people know what is best for us because they have more experience.

Fourth: Our duty is to make other people happy.  We must please them even if that means making major sacrifices.

Fifth: We must not drink from the cup of happiness; we might get to like it and we won't always have it in our hands

Sixth: We must accept all punishments.  We are guilty. 

Seventh: Fear is a warning.  We don't take any risks.

These are the commandments that no Warrior of the Light can obey.
