"What pain could you possibly cause me that my Teacher hasn't caused me already...?"

A true teacher makes his student fearless...

The fruits of realistic training, and a non-commercial/non-economic/non-political/non-self promoting traditional knowledge/schooling, which is only taught to the select few who agree to 'endure' the pain (wisdom) through which the real teacher ensures the ancient legacy breathes on.

Blessed are those who find a real teacher (Warrior).

A warrior of light knows that he has much to be grateful for.

He was helped in his struggle by the angels; celestial forces placed each

thing in its place, thus allowing him to give of his best.

His companions say: 'He's so lucky!' And the warrior does sometimes

achieve things far beyond his capabilities.

That is why, at sunset, he kneels and gives thanks for the Protective Cloak

surrounding him.

His gratitude, however, is not limited to the spiritual world; he never forgets

his friends, for their blood mingled with his on the battlefield.

A warrior does not need to be reminded of the help given him by others; he

is the first to remember and makes sure to share with them any rewards he

receives.

receives.

All the world's roads lead to the heart of the warrior; he plunges

unhesitatingly into the river of passions always flowing through his life.

The warrior knows that he is free to choose his desires, and he makes these

decisions with courage, detachment and - sometimes - with just a touch of

madness.

He embraces his passions and enjoys them intensely. He knows that there

is no need to renounce the pleasures of conquest; they are part of life and bring

joy to all those who participate in them.

But he never loses sight of those things that last or of the strong bonds that

are forged over time.

A warrior can distinguish between the transient and the enduring.

A warrior of light does not rely on strength alone, he makes use of his

opponent's energy too.

When he enters the fight, all he has is his enthusiasm and the moves and

strikes that he learned during his training. As the fight progresses, he discovers

that enthusiasm and training are not enough to win: what counts is experience.

Then he opens his heart to the Universe and asks God to give him the

inspiration he needs to turn every blow from his enemy into a lesson in selfdefence.

His companions say: 'He's so superstitious. He stopped fighting in order to

pray; he even shows respect for his opponent's tricks.'

The warrior does not respond to these provocations. He knows that without

inspiration and experience, no amount of training will help him.

A warrior of light never resorts to trickery, but he knows how to distract his

opponent.

However anxious he is, he uses every strategy at his disposal to gain his

objective. When he sees that his strength is almost gone, he makes his enemy

think that he is simply biding his time. When he needs to attack the right flank,

he moves his troops to the left. If he intends beginning the battle at once, he

pretends instead that he is tired and prepares for sleep.

His friends say: 'Look, he's lost all enthusiasm.' But he pays no attention to

such remarks because his friends do not understand his tactics.

A warrior of light knows what he wants. And he has no need to waste time

on explanations.
