Path of the Spiritul Warrior ~ Jeff Brown

Heal Your
Thanks to Ada O Shaw for sharing this.

The path of the spiritual warrior is not soft and sweet.

It is not artificially blissful and feigned forgiving. It is not fearful of divisiveness. It is not afraid of its own shadow.

It is not afraid of losing popularity when it speaks its truth. It will not beat around the bush where directness is essential.

It has no regard for vested interests that cause suffering. It is benevolent and it is fiery and it is cuttingly honest in its efforts to liberate itself and humanity from the egoic ties that bind.

Shunning strong opinions in the name of spirituality is anti-spiritual. Spirituality that is only floaty-soft is a recipe for disaster, allowing all manner of manipulation to run amok.

Real spirituality is a quest for truth, in all its forms. Sometimes we find the truth on the meditation cushion, and sometimes we find it in the heart of legitimate conflict.

May all spiritual warriors rise into fullness. This species is lost without them. (Dedicated to Andrew Harvey)
