Thanks Mike, I really like that article also. We are all spiritual warriors learning that we are asleep and starting to wake to our true destiny.

Thanks for your comment. *Returns bow

Spiritual Warrior

A term we see increasingly these days is spiritual warrior: and though at first it may sound heroic and noble, when you really think it over it's just another oxymoron like military intelligence, & jumbo shrimp. Outwardly the spiritual warrior is one who champions the cause of spirituality by daily practicing it in a way which strengthens the soul and inspires others. On a deeper level the spiritual warrior forever walks the shadows between the darkness and the light, standing guard against those dark brothers in dark robes. Perhaps the greatest battle the spiritual warrior fights is the one within; coming to terms with the duality and dichotomy of existence itself.

To some, the undertaking of spiritual practice at first seems to be all about expanding our spiritual horizons, to become a fully realized being on all levels. Because we seek to better ourselves does not mean we are better than others in any way. In fact, the whole point of spiritual practice isn't to become bigger or more, but rather to disappear all together, dissolved into the one cosmic consciousness. The "more spiritual" we become, the less likely we are to see violence as an option; and yet so very often the way of the warrior embraces it to one degree or another; that in the end we become the peaceful warriors Dan Millman wrote about.

To become a warrior against violence & intolerance is the way of the spiritual warrior, first in one's own life, and then to the world we perceive around us. When we find our way and follow our heart we begin to raise our vibration higher. This inspires us to empower ourselves even more, thus being as a light house or an example for others. Not for them to follow your path, but that by following their path...these things and so much more can be accomplished. This isn't an either/or universe; it's more of a both/and kinda place. There isn't just one way, or a single path to follow. Some would say there are twelve paths, while others still see them as infinite. The pathways may vary but the qualities gained while walking them are universal, and all lead to the same truth.

The spiritual warrior climbs the mountain of their consciousness, there to do battle with their own demons, learning how to defeat them; then returning back down the mountain to share what has been learned. Yes, at times the spiritual warrior must engage in energetic conflicts and psychic battles with those of the opposite polarity; but this is seen as more of a balancing than a true act of violence. Spiritual warriors never seek revenge even when such constraint rips their very soul asunder. Once a universal truth is learned it cannot be un-learned, and thus, to go against that knowing only serves to increase the damage & loss.

When you stand far enough back from it all; it becomes plain to see that part of humanity is invested in keeping us all apart, as another part tries to get us to come together, with everyone else caught in between this sibling rivalry of cosmic proportions. Unfortunately for everyone, this dichotomy is supported and enforced by those who seek to maintain their control over this planet and it's slave population. The very last thing they want is for humanity to unite and progress toward enlightenment. Remove all the window dressing and distractions and the truth is easy to see. What will you do about it?

Do you actively look into yourself, find, and seek to understand/except your emotions or do you seek to hide them?

Jedi can be screwed-up until they find inner peace and understanding. This effects our relationship to the Force and those around us within the Force.

A good article about understanding yourself and your many motivations. Worth a read, imo. Here are some parts of the article.

[Article]
https://www.theladders.com/career-advi ... secrets-from-neuroscience


Understand what’s really driving your behavior and you can really fix your life. Three secrets from neuroscience can help.

Got any serious bad habits? The extra-strength ones with the FDA warning. The kind you really beat yourself up about — but still engage in all the time?

Procrastination that screws up the quality of your work? Epic tidal waves of laziness? Or cardiac-threatening levels of overwork? Snapping at the ones you love? Or not speaking up even when you know you should?

We’re going to turn everything you know about bad habits on its head. For starters, here’s the good news: you’re not lazy, you’re not a screw up, and you’re not a bad person. In fact, you don’t actually have “bad habits” at all. Those tempting or nagging voices in your head aren’t evil. Actually, they’re trying to help you.

Yes, weird, but totally legit. In fact, there’s a whole system of psychology based around this: Internal Family Systems (IFS.) It’s been shown to help people with everything under the sun from depression, to anxiety, eating disorders, addictions, and even some of the most serious stuff like PTSD.


From Self-Therapy:

Parts are entities of their own, with their own feelings, beliefs, motivations, and memories. It is especially important to understand that parts have motivations for everything they do. Nothing is just done out of habit. Nothing is just a pattern of thinking or behavior you learned. Everything (except for purely physiological reactions) is done by a part for a reason, even though that reason may be unconscious.

Sum up
Here’s how to quit bad habits without willpower:

There are no bad habits, just different selves with conflicting goals: You can read this post for more, or you can go watch Inside Out. (One of these is a far more effective option. The other was written by me.)
Exiles, Managers and Firefighters: The three big categories of voices in your head. Exiles have deep-seated fears, Managers make sure those don’t get triggered, and when they do get triggered, Firefighters put out the fire (and destroy your house in the process.)
Stay calm and talk to the Manager: Find out why they do what they do by asking… well, you.
Talk to your inner child: I’m cringing that I typed that. But, corny as it sounds, it really does help. Discover your fears. That’s what’s driving your “bad behavior.”

The wolf drawing from a while back is awesome, and the breathe he expels is wicked. To me it actually looks like the skull of a dragon is right there in front of the wolf, almost touching snouts

I'll share my current lessons occurring during meditation.

Stress is basically a part of life that effects us all from childhood development to our current life situation. How we deal with that stress determines how well we handle life and every event we run into.

Some people deal with stress using drugs, legal and illegal to reduce the pain that's experienced by living in stressful situations and seek to avoid stress issues as much as possible. Some people deal with it with exercise, yoga, a pure diet, or meditation. Usually we all deal with stress in healthy and unhealthy combinations of activities. We seek relationships in order to relieve stressful situations with the help of love ones and good friends. But as you know relationships are a double edged sword which can heal or intensify our relationship with stress in general.

The cause of stress is fear. Fear of something bad happening in our future, fear of negatives things happening to us are to be expected, or just plain fear of the unknown. Understanding and conquering our fears is one of the best ways to eliminate stress in our lives. Practicing positives emotions also help to eliminate fear and stress. After all, the more we practice something the better we become at it.

So that's the short version of what I've been learning or reviewing about the Force and how it's energy effects us. Everything is a type of energy, stress, fear, joy, love. What we practice we tend to become. Practice being judgmental and we find ourselves judging others and ourselves more, practice love and we become more loving, practice peace and we have more peace in our lives.

Please feel free to ask questions an/or make comments about take on this lessons and how it can effect your life. Also take some time to google the effects of stress and fear on your body and how exercise, yoga, meditation, diet, and other practices can help heal the body and even eliminate much stress and fear from our lives.

May the Force continue to guide you.
