Th warrior of light has learned that it is best to follow the light.
He has behaved treacherously, he has lied, he has strayed from the path, he has courted darkness. And everything is fine, as if nothing had happened.
Then the abyss suddenly opens up: you can take a thousand steps in safety, but just one step too many can put an end to everything. Then the warrior stops before he destroys himself.
When he makes that decision, he hears four comments. “You always do the wrong thing. You’re too old to change. You’re no good. You don’t deserve it.”
He looks up at the sky. And a voice says ‘My dear, every one makes mistakes. You’re forgiven, but I cannot force that forgiveness on you. It’s your choice.”
The true warrior of light accepts that forgiveness.
