Who is a Spiritual Warrior
In our day to day life we encounter many problems and hurdles with which we have to fight. We don’t just sit in a corner and wait for someone to come and solve our problems. We try our level best to overcome the difficulties and problems life throws on us. You all are courageous Warriors, because you don’t rely on others help. It’s not true that a person specialized in combat and warfare activities can only be called a Warrior. People who fight with Weapons and bombs and kill innocent men, women and children can never be called as true Warriors. A true Warrior is one who fights for truth and good of world.
A Spiritual Warrior armed with his sword of self knowledge and self control, destroys ignorance and attains a state in which there is no suffering, and selfish desires. For a true warrior his mind is his battle field and his ignorance is his enemy. He releases himself from the effects of karma and the cycle of death and rebirth. Nirvana is the final goal of a Spiritual warrior.
What is Spirituality
We can not define Spirituality precisely. Spirituality may refer to a meaningful activity, which helps in your personal growth and self-realization. Unlike religion, spirituality is associated with the interior life of the individual. Spiritual practice are your journey towards nirvana, self realization, the discovery of higher truths, and true nature of reality.
A true Spiritual warrior fights with himself because man is the worst enemy of man. Mind if controlled is our best friend if not the worst foe.
Morality, concentration and Wisdom these are the weapons of a true Spiritual Warrior which he uses to kill the Passions of lust, hatred and ignorance that resides in mind. The true Spiritual warrior combats the universal enemy, self ignorance which is the ultimate source of suffering.
The spiritual warrior’s only complete and right practice is that which compassionately helps other beings with wisdom. Hence we all should become a spiritual warrior and kill all our lust of passions, greed, immorality, self -ignorance and other negativity of the mind using the weapons of self-knowledge, self-discipline, concentration of mind, virtue and our deep common sense.
Once a spiritual warrior purifies his mind then his ultimate task is the War against the universal self ignorance, lust, greed and the negativity they produce in a persons mind. Those who prefer to battle with passions in solitude alone are perfectly free.
To a Spiritual warrior, solitude is Happiness. Those who seek delight in battle with life’s problems living in the world and thus make a happy world where men can live as ideal citizens in perfect peace and harmony, can adopt that responsibility and courage.
I believe that each and every one of you can become a Spiritual warrior. The darkness within can only be destroyed by self knowledge, not by weapons. Enlightenment should be the true goal of our life.
