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.

Echo was a flea-bitten gray horse, with brown speckles everywhere, and crystal clear hairs in her mane and tail. We met in October, 1976, when she was a broodmare on an Arabian farm in New York State.

Everything in the entire universe, big and small, visible and invisible, is composed of energy.Quarks and quasars, gluons and galaxies, protons and persons, molecules and minds, sunsets and sensations, electrons and ebooks, anything and everything, are all composed of energy.
There is Light at the End of the Tunnel - Just Get Out of Your Way !
There is light at the end of the tunnel, but some days it seems like it is miles away. You have done everything you can think of to do, physically or mentally and don't even get me started on the list of emotions that have been involved in the whole process of creating the dream that you have held within your mind's eye.
Law and Order of the Spiritual Kind
There is no such thing as a coincidence. Albert Einstein reasoned that, "God simply does not play dice.
Unfinished Business (Part 2)
We know that David did much to stabilize the Kingdom of Israel. He fought a long series of wars to make Israel secure.
The possibility of almost 400 Old Testament prophesies coming to fulfillment in the incarnation of Jesus Christ, apart from God's sovereign control of history, staggers the imagination. The certainty that God planned the coming of His son into the world can offer stabilizing support to our faith in our Lord.
Ask and It Shall Be Given You
This statement sounds incredible. ASK and it shall be given.
A New Beginning
Sometimes showing up for life can seem like a major achievement. And within that 'showing up' we're showing tremendous courage.
God's Eyes- If These Four Walls Could Talk?
Can you imagine being sent out into the wilderness for forty years like Moses? If Moses would have lived his life up until then differently would God have spared him the discomfort? Was God trying to prove some point to Moses by making an example of him? What can we learn about this story?When was the last time you drove down the road with out the radio in your ears? When was the last time you just listen to your kids, your spouse or a friend and not said two words? When was the last time you just stopped and listened to the coffee pot making coffee early in the morning? Whether by design, life or nature most of us during our lives have built up barriers (walls) in our minds and around our hearts. By doing so most will never reach the full potential of what God has for their lives.
Resolutions or Revelations?
There's nothing wrong with wanting to improve ourselves either outwardly or inwardly. What's important is to check the motives behind the improvements.

I am beginning a journey starting tomorrow. I have decided that doing some serious soul searching is in order for me.
Meditations From a Spiritual Journey
For me, the best poetry stirs my soul; it awakens my spirit through its clarity and simplicity. Its purpose is clean, pointing me towards greater understanding of who I am in this world, or, even better, towards comprehension of the divine that indwells both this world and me.
Look! Its Another New Age!
There's nothing new about "the new age" except the attitude of the souls participating in it. I bet every soul who chose to incarnate into this particular historical era shook their little energy heads and said, "Oh, no! Not again!"Spiritual enlightenment is the very purpose of life as thinking, feeling human beings here on the planet Earth.
The Kabbalah of Transformation: Turning Darkness into Light
THE KABBALAH OF PERSONAL TRANSFORMATION: TURNING DARKNESS INTO LIGHT"In the sixth century of the sixth millennium, the gates of supernal [heavenly] wisdom will be opened, as will the wellsprings of earthly wisdom, preparing the world to be elevated in the seventh millennium." The Zohar (a source text of Kabbalah)"The true value of a human being is determined primarily by the measure and the sense in which he has attained liberation from the self.
Masculine Energy versus Feminine Energy
I have been reading a lot lately about the concepts of masculine and feminine energy. It all sort of goes along with the yin and yang definitions of masculine and feminine.
The Key to a Clear Conscience
I have discovered as I grow older in Christ Jesus and wiser in all things spiritual, that one of the best possessions any person can have is a clear conscience. You feel good.
Change Your Outlook on Change
Make no mistake about it, change is challenging whether it is conscious or unexpected. Viewing adversity as change, not loss or failure, is part of empowered and positive thinking.
The Best Laid Plans
We all know that the best laid plans of mice and men sometimes go awry, so we shouldn't be surprised when the best laid lifeplans go awry, too.What "looks good on paper" doesn't always look as good when it comes up in your life, especially if - like so many of our learning experiences - the person or the situation that we're dealing with proves to be less than a positive experience.
