Warriors arise only at specific times when the current society, ruler or nation is endangered. Otherwise, there is no need for them to shift their priorities to the role of service and self-sacrifice, or to train themselves so they may be of wise service.
Warriors for the Human Spirit are arising because the human spirit needs protection. We are peaceful warriors, refraining from using aggression and fear to do our work. We recognize the harm being done to people, planet, and all life. We have identified where we are historically in the well-documented pattern of a civilization’s rise and fall. We know that collapse is here.
But is this view one that you share? If you are interested to understand the reasons we in Warrior Training have this clarity, how it motivates us to prepare to be of service as things continue to fail, we offer here two podcasts by Meg. These two interviews make clear our view and work, and can make visible your own understanding of this present time.
After listening to these podcasts, we encourage your discernment about your own view. If there is sufficient congruence of views, we invite you to enter the Second Gate, a three-week contemplation process that offers deeper exploration about whether Warrior Training is the right path for you.
As you listen to these two podcasts, we suggest that you make notes of what most surprises you, what gets you either upset or relieved, what arguments might you be countering with, what rings true in your own experience. It would be good to take a few days to explore your reactions and responses before making a decision to proceed or not.
It is extremely challenging and deeply saddening to come to terms with where we are. We know this first-hand and still encounter many periods of OMG and despair. Yet we rise from there every time with renewed commitment to train to be of service as Warriors. This is why we encourage your reflection.
Thank you for your bravery,
