I know you are a real warrior (unlike some people on this forum) and as such I have respect.
[I also have respect for the unaware but it is a different kind of respect. Its more about respecting their right to live and less about respecting their choices/beliefs/attitudes.]
But I would like you to consider something my friend:
Make of it what you will:
"A warrior must know first that his acts are useless, and yet he must proceed as it he didn't know it. Thats a shamans controlled folly"
"The spirit manifests itself to a warrior at every turn. However this is not the entire truth. The entire truth is that the spirit releals itself to everyone with the same intensity and consistency, but only warriors are consistently attuned to such revelations."
"Silent knowledge is nothing but direct contact with intent."
... and perhaps most relevant is this...
"Warriors can never make a bridge to join the people of the world. But, if people desire to do so they have to make a bridge to join warriors."
By the way: I don't think I EVER claimed to be INFALLIBLE in what I say. I just believe that saying statements with AUTHORITY contains more WEIGHT and produces more pause for reflection than the usual "I think" "Um" "I wonder" etc etc.
Truth is, I see alot of people [and I don't mean to boast here] asking questions on this forum that I have long since figured out. And then you get people responding (who clearly have no idea) saying things like "maybe" or "I'm not sure but" or "I read from such-and-such" or "So-and-so says ... etc."
And frankly I think all this baseless speculation is a somewhat of a drag. It makes for boring reading.
I am someone who has asked God questions all my life and I believe that "everything you ponder you will one day know".
My approach has always been the humble approach; I have asked the questions, read all the books etc, and DONE all the practices. My believe is that the only REAL approach to spirituality should be to FIND OUT FOR YOURSELF The idea is not to root your truth in books and people but to DEVELOPE YOUR OWN AWARENESS AND HENCE ARRIVE AT YOUR OWN CONCLUSIONS. Then you will become one the teachers and instead of asking the universe questions you will be GIVING the universe ANSWERS.
But are these "answers" you read about truth? No, not really - the only TRUTH is the one you find in your own heart and soul.
I am humble becaue I KNOW how much I have been helped. And now, I pass it on.
But you can take me seriously or as a complete fruit-loop. Does it matter? I don't care which. What matters is (after I post my startling statements) you can connect with your INNER WISDOM and decide for yourself whether what I say resonates or not. I could be anyone - I'm an anonymous person on a forum.
I say again: I am not here to ram my opinions down peoples throats but to encourage people to find their OWN truth. And also to entertain NEW ideas and concepts and to EXPAND peoples minds.
Another thing: I don't think I've EVER read a good book or listened to a wise person give advice without them speaking and actingwith a certain certainty.
