The Role of the Spiritual Warrior

What power do we hold individually in the midst of the havoc being wreaked upon our world? What steps can we take regarding the anxiety people feel all across the nation?

All these questions bring me to one answer and one answer only- to hold clear to our individual light and radiate peace to all of humanity and the planet. We are powerful individuals. When combined together, we hold the key to our future on the Earth. We have the ability to shift the energetic structure of the planet. When enough individuals hold the same intention, prayer and thoughts of peace for all, then it brings a very powerful energy into being- the power of LOVE.

We have been taught in metaphysical teachings that there exist only two emotions- Love and Fear. All other emotions are simply derivatives of these two original emotions. When feeling anything other than love, or its derivatives of peace, joy, harmony and pleasure, then fear reigns. Fear has been described as the absence of love. All energy begins with love.

These unsettled times of fear that continue to be pushed to the forefront by the media and individuals seeking false power and attention while bordering on fanaticism are challenging for us all. Remember that it is always a choice to be caught up in the fear, or stand on the sidelines experiencing love and simply witnessing the fear as it flows by.

Being a witness to fear instead of an active participant is the first step to holding love within your heart. As you observe others in fear, you choose to only observe. This action keeps the fear from being fed. A witness does not add fuel to the fear, but holds compassion in their heart and shines that light of love into the darkness of the fear. Compassion is love combined with forgiveness. Can you find love within your heart for others that are trapped within their own cycle of destruction? If you can, you are beginning to understand the path of the witness. The role of the witness must be understood as a precursor to being initiated as a Spiritual Warrior.

The Spiritual Warrior seeks peace for humanity by radiating love.

Keeping peace, love and harmony for all as your focus, the Spiritual Warrior does not do battle. The Spiritual Warrior changes the outcome of the battle that is being fought externally by allowing his/her inner awareness, light and power to beam out into the heart of the darkness, shining light into the otherwise empty space where love once lived. Remember that fear is simply the absence of love. What steps are you willing to take to change the world? Open your heart to other possibilities. Can you envision yourself as a Spiritual Warrior? Look into your heart and allow the truth to emerge. You may find that you have always been a Spiritual Warrior looking for an opportunity to radiate.
