ur journey as Light Warriors began with the quest for 'Finding Peace'. Today, we focus on realizing that becoming a Light Warrior is not a destination but rather an ongoing process of self-development. It involves continuously striving to improve ourselves and sharing our inner light with the world.
Why This Matters: You don't listen to a song just to hear the end. It's the same with personal growth. It's an ongoing process. AS Michael A. Singer might say, 'The moment you think you've 'arrived, you've lost the plot.'
The challenge: We fail on the path of personal growth because we're trying to control each step, to 'steer the river'. When we strive to perfect the steps of enlightenment, we may miss the beauty of letting go in every moment, like thinking about our feet all the time while dancing.
The Promise: If enlightenment is often compared to reaching the peak of a mountain, then becoming the Light Warrior is the climb. It can be sweaty and gritty, but the view is worth it. Yet the more we climb, the more we see other mountains tops, and the more we can guide others up that mountain, creating ripples of positivity, love, and understanding.
This issue will provide the following Key Lessons:
Embarking on the warrior's path means a commitment to personal growth. Every step is a testament to the courage and determination required to succeed. Documenting this journey is a powerful reminder of the progress made and the transformation yet to come. Becoming a Light Warrior is about embodying a sense of purpose larger than oneself. It is a commitment to lighting the path for others, guiding them toward peace, harmony, and their own inner brilliance.
What steps have you taken recently? What worked, what not? How did you experience what you attempted to achieve?
Being a Light Warrior isn't just an inner transformation. The Light Warrior is not self-centered. Being a Light Warrior means embracing love, kindness, and compassion and expressing them in the world. Imagine cooking a hearty meal—don't you want the aroma to waft out, inviting others to join in?

"The path to becoming a warrior is lifelong, and true mastery is often just a matter of staying on course." - Chogyam Trungpa.
In this stage, we have two possible perspectives. The first focuses on achieving our ultimate goal - enlightenment and true transformation. We may hope that one day, it will become effortless to live by our principles. The other perspective is comprehending that the destination is not the end but the journey itself. You have entered a new world. It's not a new path in an existing world that leads to a place.
Accepting that there is no finish line to this journey is the key to embracing the obstacles. The obstacle is the way. Each difficulty is a stone on the path of growth.
"Circumstances don't make the man, they only reveal him to himself" - Epictetus.
When I face a difficulty, the real challenge is to shift from 'Oh gosh, I am not yet there' to a mindset of acceptance and gratitude. With this mindset, we can maintain the reserve of courage we've built up over time.
Practice Fearless Love: Even when you feel surrounded by negativity, remember that an enlightened person genuinely cares about others. It's like being the sun; it shines on everyone, no exceptions.
Embrace the Slips: Mistakes happen, but each is a stepping stone. They're your "Patient and Understanding" moments, reminding you of the innate goodness within and urging you to connect back to it.
Continuous Learning: Always remain a student. Seek new knowledge, experiences, and perspectives to enrich your understanding and depth as a Light Warrior.
Share the Light: Remember, this journey isn't just about personal growth. Take every opportunity to share your insights, experiences, and light with others, guiding them on their own paths.
Rediscover Your Essence: Embark on a journey into the labyrinth of your soul and retrieve the essence that trauma has obscured. Life's complex maze can cast a shadow on our nature, leaving us feeling lost and disconnected. However, you can bring those lost fragments into the light of day, restoring balance and vitality.
