A warrior of light knows that certain moments repeat themselves.
He often finds himself faced by the same problems and situations, and seeing these difficult situations return, he grows depressed, thinking that hs is incapable of making any progress in life.
‘I’ve been through all this before’ he says to his heart.
‘Yes, you have been through all of this before’, replies his heart.’ But you have neve rbeen beyond it.’
Then the warrior reliases that these repeated experiences hae but one aim: to teach him what he does not want to learn.
