Aart | 99 comments Warriors of light frequently ask themselves
what they are doing here.
Very often they believe their lives have no meaning.
That is why they are warriors of light.
Because they make mistakes.
Because they ask questions.
Because they continue to look for a meaning.
And, in the end, they will find it.
