Dear friends,

I thought it might be useful for somebody to get some "Boddhisatva" inspiration in other words.

The manual Warrior of the Light from Paulo Coelho

with loving kindness
Just that! :-)

The Warrior of the Light unwittingly takes a false step and plunges into the abyss.

Ghosts frighten him and solitude torments him. His aim had been to fight the Good Fight, and he never imagines that this would happen to him, but it did. Shrouded in darkness, he makes contact with his master.

"Master, I have fallen into the abyss," he says. "The waters are deep and dark."

"Remember one thing," replies the master. "You do not drown simply by plunging into the water, you only drown if you stay beneath the surface."

And the Warrior uses all his strength to escape from his predicament.
