THE TRANSFORMING POWER OF MILITARY ACADEMY

At RMA Sandhurst Prince Harry learned to carry out orders, no matter how absurd they might seem and to go on exhausting long training marches, with 60 pounds of fatigues on his back. He learned what it takes to survive on the battlefield so that one could become victorious. And above all, he learned to put a little love in everything he does. To base your love on the deeds you make for the benefit of your people. To behave like a man and to give your love to the people.

The personality of the Prince, seen from the outside, should be completed by the imagined construction of his inner personality, which the book The Cadet Life of Prince Harry is attempting to do. The two perspectives are complementary. His smile, his friendly voice, and the brightness of his eyes  can be very helpful in this respect.

As for Harry, this period full of physical and intellectual effort at RMA Sandhurst made him understand the value of life as a cadet, the richness of the passing moment, the significance of every transitory minute. These months of military life and military knowledge have proved to be enough for a lifetime.

Therefore, Prince Harry is an extraordinary being. He is, at the same time, unitary and multilateral, linear and very often unpredictable. Concurrently answering the calls of his inner needs and of the outside world, he blends love for himself with sacrifice.

The man Harry wants to know, wants to know himself, always restless, never content.  He lives inside himself, but also for spreading outside. He wants to discover his calling and wants to accomplish it at planetary level. What defines him is particularly the inner power through which he can raise above the material world. It is the leap towards freedom and fantasy. It is the change, escape from  the arbitrary and the monotonous, from a dull existence, controlled by imposed limitations.

It is the call of adventure, that is the ability to advance beyond individual limits.  It is the sacrifice of the own being, in order to achieve a dream. For him, human value means escape from constraints, love and sacrifice. This is a total paradox:  his destiny  buried in his inner being  also includes the chance of  his own transformation.

From now on , his human destiny will appear  in a new light. In this destiny we see the unique way in which a man surrenders to the things around him, but also his dissolution into  the endless forms of possibility. His ability to stop in time to change the world. We know the secret vibration of life that  a man can perceive  in the moment of revelation  when he meets himself. This is the destiny of a member of the British Royal Family : Prince Harry!
