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. "Vengeance is mine, I will repay, said the Lord" Romans
Those who choose to walk a spiritual path in this life often come to accept that they will be walking it alone. In the final analysis there are as many reasons for this as there are belief systems, because most are, sadly, still preaching separation rather than teaching Unity. When the mind becomes locked into any ideology that demonizes those of other beliefs, true progress is unlikely and enlightenment impossible. When we deny the divinity of others, we diminish our own divinity exponentially; and distance ourselves from our source. Does each grain of sand believe itself separate from the beach? Does the drop of seawater believe it is the entire ocean?
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?
This then is the battle most spiritual warriors find themselves engaged in most often, and if you aren't cautious you'll find yourself still fighting this 'battle' when the opportunity arrives to progress to a vaster reality, leaving all the childishness behind. Yes, it is still important to fight "the good fight" - just not on 4D earth, as that battle will never cease.
For a great many at this time The Good Fight has now become internal once again; as we detach from what was, in order to embrace what will be. The conflict now is with the remnants of our ego, and the strength of our convictions.
Don't believe everything you think!
As we know, our thoughts are very powerful because it is through our thoughts that we create the 'reality' we perceive; yet most people still toss them around mindless of the chaos and pain they create...never understanding the cause & effect relationship at play. This disharmonious equation is made worse when we consider that most of the things coming out of most of the mouths are just rehashed, recycled thoughts picked up from some outside source rather than original thought, the product of critical thinking. People latch onto some outside thought, usually because of its intentionally crafted packaging and usage. Because it sounds intellectual and hip, people remember and repeat the slickly wrapped thought or belief, as if it IS original, and before ya know it, the thought becomes a belief...without ever having to pass much scrutiny of verification. Lamentably, a great many people form entire belief systems this way, assimilating slick sounding syllables to seem smarter than they really are; instead of thru personal experience. Wading thru stuff such as that in the general population is what wears down a good many spiritual warriors over time. They become jaded and world weary realizing as they do that much of humanity is still not ready for their message; still not willing to evolve. Add to this the aspect of walking the spiritual path alone; and we begin to understand why so many light workers and spiritual warriors are opting for the higher vibrations of fifth dimensional resonance.
Fifth dimensional emergence is already making itself known in various ways. Many have noticed that the sun is a bit brighter than usual these days while also noting that time has taken on some rather elastic attributes of late as well. Then there is the whole insanity of multiple synchronicities occurring in a short span of time. One person recently told me of having three different experiences each repeat themselves three times in a single day. Or perhaps you find yourself seeing all the time, or variations thereof such as , , etc, etc. - this too is another 5D signpost. Yet another "sign of the times" being experienced by many is that some things which once seemed so important now seem trivial and of little merit. Just ask your friends and co-workers if they have experienced any of these things ~ you will be surprised at how many have! Spiritual warriors and light workers are following these breadcrumb trails to a higher vibrational state of being because something in their soul tells them that their time is NOW!
The Mastodon in the Room!
Have you noticed how an awful lot of upscale insanity has erupted across this planet in just the last little while? All the sudden unrest with
on top of an imminent war involving the rest of the mid-east countries...now
the U.S. Government is shut down, and this time there is more behind it than
the usual dickish bickering between greedy haters. There are those who believe the Syria
ran out of money last May, and has been propping up a house of cards ever
since...squeezing out every last dollar possible exactly like sharks in a blood-in-the-water
feeding frenzy. These same folks will
tell you that the reason the government shut itself down was to give themselves
a head start. They know something is
about to happen and they're not talking about it. USA
Fact is, almost nobody is talking about the one thing we should all be talking about, and that is the announced plans from Tepco to begin removing many thousands of spent fuel rods from those crippled reactors at Fukushima. Not to put too fine a point on it, but, if there is any mishap at all with those fuel rods, the release of radioactivity would be many times greater and deadlier than what has already leaked into the air and been deliberately dumped directly into the pacific ocean. One miscalculation or bad judgment call from Tepco with those fuel rods and the life priorities of seven billion humans changes instantly, and not in a life affirming way. This then is the Mastodon in the room, the one thing certain to kill every living organism except roaches and some bacteria - and nobody wants to talk about it, much less DO something about it. This is also what has spawned this feeding frenzy of aggression - it's the final grab before the balloon goes up. Is 5D resonance looking better to you yet?
The one thing most responsible for the demise of humanity is politics. This is easily understood by breaking the word down to it's root meanings: Poli- meaning many, and Tics- Blood sucking parasites! These greedy haters are psychopaths not the least bit interested in the upliftment of humanity, or anything beyond their own net worth. Seeing they would sooner burn it all down than to yield their power; the responsible spiritual warrior must choose their options from a dwindling menu of possibilities. Some are moving on to higher frequencies and vaster realities, while others will stay to assist those remaining with the 4D version of earth; when the timelines finally split permanently.
The future is being born right before our very eyes, and it is beckoning us to be participants rather than spectators...for as we have seen, if we don't create the world the way we think it should be; someone else will do it for us. How are you liking the results so far?
"It was the fall of the year 2013; and the wars had paused unexpectedly.
All around us it was as if the universe was holding its breath; waiting...
All of life can be broken down into moments of transition
and moments of revelation. This has the feeling of both!
There is a greater darkness than the one we fight,
it is the darkness of the soul that has lost it's way.
The war we fight is not against powers and principalities;
but against chaos and despair.
Greater than the death of flesh is the death of hope, the death of dreams.
Against this peril we can never surrender.
The future is all around us...waiting in moments of transition
to be born in moments of revelation.
No one knows the shape of the future, or where it will take us...
We know only, that it is always born in pain.
If we are wise, what is born of that pain
Matures into the promise of a better world
Because we learn that we can no longer afford
the mistakes of the past."
