The Vision to see your goal and keep it in your consciousness.
The Courage to attempt it and to keep up.
The Grit to go through it.
The Humility to know who the Doer is.
The Knowledge to substantiate it.
The Prayer to feed it.
The Grace to carry yourself through it.
The Determination to achieve it.’
It is said the difference between a warrior and a human is that the human is always dividing experiences, thoughts and things into good and bad. The warrior sees them all as blessings including the challenges.
The warrior is always ready to dies if he needs to. And, while he is not always seeking attack to expand his dominion: he is always ready to defend what he values. He has a clear sense of space and how he occupies it.
I often say anything is possible and anything is as long as you are clear about your past and present. This discerns what’s actually possible for you. This informs your judicious Yes’ and Nos.
It also informs the steps towards realising your vision (your potential, your possibilities). Based on this you create a plan, a strategy for the path forward.
Always ready to adapt, always flexible, nimble and agile travelling along the path: extending one’s capacity and circle of influence little by little. Knowing when it is time to step and when it is appropriate to leap.
The vision can be small, it can expand as your confidence, trust, consistency, power, humility and belief.
It requires commitment, tenacity and perseverance. In order to succeed you need the courage to step towards it, the grit to go through it and the determination to achieve it. You need the sensitivity and intuition to know when to act, and when to wait; the understanding that you need patience.
You can not extend beyond your reach. Everything is built upon what has gone before. Winter while it appears dead, creates the life that becomes Spring and so it follows.
The Spiritual Warrior brings you face to face with who you are: with all your strengths and weaknesses, pettiness and importance, meanness and generosity, intelligence and stupidity, courage and fear.
It invites you to accept all of yourself and bring compassion to your understanding of others. It invites you to step into your power as you elicit the power in others.
It invites you to lead while gathering the strengths and resources of others to help you shape your vision in service to the greater good. It invites you to become who you truly are. As you gain a clear understanding of who you are and how you can step into your essential self. It allows you to see that competition is benign and to achieve anything great you need to inspire, gather, collaborate and celebrate.
You will discover that being a Spiritual warrior is elevated beyond the physical battle, war or fighting.
The art of this life is the mastery of one’s self and while along the way you may lose many battles. You have not lost the war.
