Most of us admire warriors. The image of the warrior represents strength, courage , nobility,perseverance and honor. The dictionary defines a warrior as a brave or experienced soldier or fighter. We respect soldiers. They protect us. A warriors’ purpose is to fight. They are trained for battle. Many live for it. It is their calling. Most warriors are willing to die for what they believe in. Many are truly honorable men and women. Some might not be as “honorable”. Some consider themselves soldiers of fortune. Nevertheless, they all have one thing in common. They have each been trained , in one way or the other, to fight. They are deserving of respect possessing qualities that anyone can benefit from emulating. They can be considered true role models.

Let’s look at the image of the sage. The sage is defined as a profoundly wise person who is well known for his or her wisdom. It is a considered a very prestigious position. When I think of a sage, I think of an individual with vast life experience. A sage is well learned especially in the area of ancient wisdom. Powerful leaders seek out their counsel on crucial matters. A sage might go by different names such as teacher,counselor, consultant , mentor or trusted adviser. Their wisdom is considered highly valuable, therefore, in many cases, they are well taken car of. A matter of fact, many warriors have relied solely on the sages’ guidance. It is also an honorable position. Both the warrior and the sage possess qualities that are exceptional.

Know let’s look at the warrior sage. Here , we see the best of both worlds. It is my opinion that each of us possesses the spirit of the warrior sage within us. The warrior sage represents self realization. The life of the warrior sage is an authentic life. They are true to themselves. They take responsibility for their own well being . Their sense of self worth is no longer determined by what society dictates nor do they seek others approval. They have embraced their own uniqueness. Warrior sages realize that they are part of something greater than themselves. They are one with everything and everyone around them. Their thoughts determine their reality. Every experience “outside” is a result of what’s going on inside. There are no exceptions. They embrace the journey of life and trained themselves to focus on the present. Warrior sages realize that life is meant to be lived fully. In order to do this, they focus on life balance,specifically, the physical,mental, emotional, spiritual and social aspects of life. Each is connected , therefore, affected by the other.
They also realize that everything is energy including us. What appears solid actually isn’t truly that way. Energy vibrates at various frequencies assuming the appearance of  solid, liquid or gas. Warrior sages know that their emotions are actually energy in motion. Our emotional responses are directly tied to our thoughts. Our thoughts become the things that appear in our lives. In order to have the best life experience , we must learn to stay within the present moment while training ourselves to take inventory of our thoughts. This is the key to mastery. Mastering our thoughts refers to being so aware of our thoughts that we are able to pick and choose which thoughts serve us as opposed to which thoughts sabotage us. Once we master our thoughts , we automatically experience better emotional responses. Warrior sages know this and realize that this a daily practice. There is no arrival in this area because each day brings its own circumstances with it. Each day is an opportunity to learn, evolve and grow. This view of the daily life experience leads to fulfillment.
The warrior sage is convinced that we are more than human beings capable of having  spiritual experiences rather we are spirit having a human experience.Although they are focused on the present moment in order to have the best possible human experience, they also realize that being human is one of countless experiences. Our true nature is divine and eternal. The warrior sage sees divinity in all things and people, therefore, witnesses a part of themselves. Everything and everyone is connected despite appearances.  Due to this fact, though wise, warrior sages exist in a constant state of humility. What reason do anyone of us have to think of ourselves as better than anyone else if we are all connected. Each of us is a different aspect of the whole. To compare myself to others is to insinuate separatism. We are all one, eternal and unlimited. What affects one, affects another.To harm or think negative thoughts about others is to do the same thing to ourselves. Treat others the way that you want to be treated and you will experience the same in return in one form or the other. This is a definition of love. This is the way of the warrior sage.
Warrior sages acknowledge that the nature of the universe is abundance. There is more than enough for everybody. States of lack and poverty are mere illusions. To see divinity is to see abundance( the starts in the sky, sand on the beach, blades of grass in an open filed, etc). There are symbols of abundance everywhere.
Warrior sages does not seek to fight anyone outside of themselves. They know that the true battle is within us. We are each called to battle with the constant conditioning that we have been subjected to from the time that we were each pulled from our mothers womb. We fight with our past conditioning and the various emotions tied to it in order to become truly self realized individuals. Self realization is necessary to truly be free to live this life on our own terms. True seekers of enlightenment no longer seek a shepherd because they are no longer “sheep”. At the same time, the warrior sage doesn’t seek to be anyone else’s shepherd either. They advise others to go within. They realize that each person must find their own way.This doesn’t mean that they are not open to wise counsel. Rather they seek knowledge in order to help them help themselves. They go within for guidance that they are convinced could appear , at any moment, during their life experience. They are attuned to this fact. This is the path of the warrior sage. This is the path to freedom.
