The Four Worlds International Institute

From my webpage www.acttraining.biz , I am writing a paper called Spirituality and Creativity from Two Elders Perspectives.  One small section is:

 

The Way of the Warrior Can Lead to Conflict with the Ways of the World

               When I was providing training with the Kickapoo Tribe of Kansas, I learned a bit about the philosophy of the warrior and inner discipline; the men were taught to live and think that within and outside of each of us are battles of fear and insecurity which must be faced in the way of the warrior. The  Elders teach that the warrior must follow the Yellow Road, with life often grabbing at his mind to take him  into the illusionary worlds of the past or future.  Then the warrior must re-connect to his wisdom to turn back to the Yellow Road and live in the Present world of walking side by side with the Spirit.

               Silyas Saunders was the same.  He was taught by his father to fight for what is right.  “In my days I had to fight for myself, no police would help—either you fight for yourself or don’t survive.  Try to go to the RCMP and get help but they either ignore or misunderstand the situation.  They would even threaten me, or see me with prejudice and I would react.  If I let the Police walk over me, what will my children think?  Maybe it is better to prove it in a different way, but then I almost have to read their minds to be compassionate. “

Thanks for bringing this wisdom to our attention. One of my teachers, Eckhart Tolle shares that the past is made up of ghosts of memories and the future does not exist and can only ever show up in the 'present moment' of now. So one can only be in ones power in any given present moment. Ones conscious mind wants to take us into the past and then project us into the future based on those past experiences, real or illusionary which is based on fear thinking or survival thinking. However I have found and it takes a warrior to stay foccussed in living in the present, which is from ones 'Heart' space of love and compassion. From this place, the inner and outer worlds can be observed without 'reaction' and the conscious mind can be controlled. Otherwise one is lost to its constant FEAR (False Emotions Appearing Real) projections and 'reaction' happens instead of the other heart option of the abilty to 'respond'. Yeah its tough being in a human vehicle and only by praying and staying connected to Spirit does my heart stay open in unconditional love and not move into conditional fear of my past memories and projected fear based future illusions.

This is a constant battle within, in every waking moment. A warrior path indeed.

Blessings on the person who does such battle with themselves, for all will benefit.

We are all connected.

In service and love

Ultimately, the true way of the warrior is peace. Always stand up for peace, the Woman Nation, the children, our Elders and our men. We must stand up for our Mother Earth.

 

Thank you and may you walk in beauty
