From Worrier to Warrior
Knowledge is not the same as wisdom, wisdom is doing. Everyone wants to tell you what to do and what’s good for you, they don’t want you to find your own answers because they want you to believe theirs. Stop gathering information from outside of yourself and start gathering it from the inside, people are afraid of what’s inside and that’s the only place you are ever going to find what you need. Why can’t you sleep? is it because late at night when you’re alone and the silence screams you get a little scared because everything feels so empty? do you feel like you are losing your mind? sometimes you have to lose your mind to come to your senses. Maybe it’s because you want to be someone who uses his mind and his body in ways that most would never have the courage to, maybe it’s because you are destined to be a real warrior to serve others instead of being a worrier of self-loathing. To be a warrior is to be shielded in Gods armor of his perfect design with his word as your sword, the holy ghost as your army, and his love as your joy that brings you authentic peace. A warrior is not about perfection or victory, or invulnerability, a warrior is about absolute vulnerability. That’s the only true courage.
The mind is just a reflex organ, it reacts to everything. It is the mind you must conquer because where the mind goes the body will follow and once you master your emotions you are in control of your destiny. It’s all about leverage, life is about developing the wisdom to apply the right leverage in the right place at the right time. Take a personal inventory of your life and “take out the trash” everything that is negative and not serving you is “trash.” The trash is everything that is keeping you from the only thing that matters, this moment, here, now. When you are in the here and now you will be amazed at what you can do and how well you can do it. Are you in the past gloating, holding on to attachments, are you in the past vengeful letting your emotions control you, are you living in reaction or are you in the present living on purpose? all you have is right now.
A warrior acts only a fool reacts, death isn’t sad what is sad is that most people never live fully and a life lived in fear is a life half lived. Stop holding on to the past because all you have is right now and if you knew you had one minute to live and were to ask yourself “have I really lived” could you say “YES, passionately, fully, and I am so exhausted I am ready” because I want you to experience everything you love and love everything you experience, find the beauty where there was none. Remember, when you don’t get what you want you suffer and when you get what you want you still suffer because you can’t hold onto it forever. Pride of oneself and genuine love for others cannot coexist therefore one must give up what one cannot keep to get what one cannot lose… Understand that just because things don’t always work the way you want you don’t give up on your dreams you give up the only thing you never had, control, realize that either way whatever happens you are exceptional.
Be “present” and live fully engaged in the moment to experience life fully with the knowledge that there is never nothing going on, there are no ordinary moments, make time to experience the timeless moments of the lives around you because you may be the only person who is a witness to another’s existence and the beauty of their life. The people that are the hardest to love are usually the ones who need it the most, you will never be better nor will you ever be less, just be conscious of your choices and responsible for your actions. Every action has it’s price and it’s pleasure, recognizing both sides and is becoming realistic and responsible for your actions.
Life has three rules, paradox, humor and change, life is a mystery don’t waste time trying to figure it out, keep your sense of humor especially about yourself because it is a strength beyond all measure, know that nothing stays the same. The journey is what brings us happiness not the destination, always ask yourself three questions;
1. where are you? here
2. what time is it? now
3. what are you? this moment…
