Walking the path of the warrior is not always unicorns and rainbows. There are battles, both internal and external. Words of encouragement are sometimes few. Warriors for truth persist in the face of daunting odds. If this resonates, this message is for you.
What is a Warrior of Light
A warrior is someone who brings their light into scary places. So, they often find themselves in dark places. It doesn’t mean they aren’t afraid. But, they find the courage to bring light where it is needed. It also means they are not perfect.
All spiritual crusaders make mistakes. Everyone makes choices they later regret. Warriors of light carry battle scars of some kind, external or internal. Everyone has been hurt, lied to, or betrayed someone, even if it was unintentional. This journey is not an easy undertaking—these result from being in the battle of life. When you go into the darkness to help others, it is scary. But, it’s a calling that you cannot ignore.
“Every warrior of light has felt afraid of going into battle.” — Paulo Coelho (1)
As warriors, we sometimes take the wrong path. We may even try to follow in the footsteps of one of the great Avatars or Sages. Some spend hours toiling over and memorizing sacred texts, only to find it’s a waste of precious time. So, they return to the real spiritual battle against superstition and mythology, against religion and sectarianism. And, fight for the truth of evidence and science.
“Often, during combat, the warrior of light receives blows that he was not expecting. And he realizes that, during a war, his enemy is bound to win some of the battles. When this happens, the warrior weeps bitter tears and rests in order to recover his energies a little. But he immediately resumes the battle for his dreams.” — Paulo Coelho
It takes a while, but we realize the sages did not find enlightenment following organized religion. To be a warrior, you’ll need to walk a path that you forge where no one else has walked. We finally understand the stories are examples showing us how to develop our spiritual journey. They are examples of those who reject organized religion and walk their path.
“Truth is not to be found outside. No teacher, no scripture can give it to you. It is inside you and if you wish to attain it, seek your own company. Be with yourself.” — Osho
These experiences prepare us to help others. Walking the wrong path, betrayals, and mistakes are lessons. Nor does it mean we are never fearful. It means we learn to face it, anyway. We need to assess our fears. Warriors for truth, learn to move beyond the counterfeits.
Sometimes fear helps protect us from harm, such as falling from a high place, or help us see something dangerous. So, our fear can help us make better choices based on reality. We join the battle to overcome hierocracy and inequity.
Other people see us walking a unique path. They watch us overcome trials in our lives, and this encourages others to forge their path.
Calling Warriors of Light & Warriors for Truth
Every warrior of light has, at least once, doubted themselves. At some point, everyone doubts their abilities their calling. But, in their hearts, they hear a call for a higher mission. We all fail ourselves or others because we are not perfect. Everyone is flawed in some way.
“Science is the search for the truth–it is not a game in which one tries to beat his opponent, to do harm to others. We need to have the spirit of science in international affairs, to make the conduct of international affairs the effort to find the right solution, the just solution of international problems, and not an effort by each nation to get the better of other nations, to do harm to them when it is possible. I believe in morality, in justice, in humanitarianism.” — Linus Pauling
The need to be of service has led everyone to say ‘yes’ when they should have said ‘no.’ They deny that they need time to recharge their batteries and sharpen their spiritual tools. So, we cannot handle the burden we agreed to take, and this, too, is a failure. We must admit we are perfectly flawed to show others they should strive to fulfill their mission.
It is why it is crucial to keep a beginner’s mindset. We must always be willing to learn and share. We are perfectly flawed to accomplish our missions. We are all created this way. In this way, we can show love, even when we need love. We can heal when we need healing. We have been through all this and yet have never lost hope. The warrior’s call to service outweighs the obstacles in our path. We find hope and fellowship of like-minded warriors to help sustain our hope for a better future.
As warriors of light, we are also warriors for truth. This responsibility puts us in conflict with those spreading disinformation and conspiracy theories which prevent people from following the advice of informed health experts. Their motto is facts, not fiction; evidence, not imaginary friends and enemies.
The calling is to confront injustice and prejudice while spreading compassion, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a battle. It’s certainly not a straightforward task. When you face bigotry with kindness, some see it as a weakness. But, it is not a weakness; it is compassion in action. It takes courage, and courage is a vulnerability—this is the trademark of these spiritual warriors.
So, every warrior of light needs to take care of themselves. You will face rejection. People will attack your character. Understand that they will not see the results of the seeds you plant. You may never see the positive change, but you are still the catalyst. Everyone in this battle needs to equip themselves fully. If you are training to be a spiritual warrior, get every spiritual tool or spiritual technology you can.
Every spiritual crusader needs weapons. You need implements and tactics to bolster your skills; you need a toolbox of spiritual instruments.
Spiritual technologies are a collection of proven methods for developing and exploring consciousness. They help us expand awareness and unlock our gifts.
These tools differ significantly from religion. They do not require faith or belief in any religious doctrine. Anyone can use these processes to develop their full potential. All you need to do is follow the process, and it’s just like following the recipe for baking a cake. If you combine the right ingredients in the right way and you get something delicious.
We select the best of these ancient methods for our blended learning method. These processes are time-tested by generations of use, and they stand up to the rigorous tests of science. They are repeatable processes, and several produce measurable effects on our physiology. These changes include increased brainwave coherence, lower heart rate, and increased skin resistance. Changes like this prove these partitions of consciousness differ significantly from waking, dreaming, and sleeping.
We divide these tools into four major categories:
Everyone can use these methods to create their unique spiritual path, and you can start with any of these methods. The more of them you use, the faster your progress.
Do you hear the call of the warriors of light? The world needs more people with the courage to show light into the darkness and be warriors for truth.
