The Warrior’s Way

A “warrior” is defined by the dictionary as someone who fights or has experience fighting, a soldier, or someone who possesses extraordinary bravery and vigor. Nowadays, there is a fair amount of peace among nations, except for a few regions. But, in general, are we truly at peace with ourselves?

The Mental War

The real battle we have to wage is mental, against tension and unwanted, upsetting emotions. We fight a never-ending war of stress, whether it’s at work with ridiculous drama amongst coworkers or supervisors or in your own family ties. We win some fights and lose others. While some are avoidable, others need to be combated.

The struggle against stress is real. When it becomes overwhelming, it creates migraines, sleep issues, and other indicators of poor health.
Some drown their problems in drugs or alcohol, while others find refuge in sports or workouts. 
Some people also turn to friends or therapists to vent their problems.

In all fairness, we all deal with these problems in life. The thing that distinguishes us is how we handle them.

Victim, Abuser, Impeccable Warrior

Each challenge we face is a chance to forge our character. The world may be divided in three categories.

Category 1The Victims

Those are the ones who are constantly grumbling about their life. Nothing in their lives is good enough. The weather is too cold or too hot, the traffic is unbearable, the news are always too negative. They always take the blame when reacting to problems. They become so addicted to the victim roles, that they actively seek out problems to generate opportunities for constant self-blame or self-criticism.

Category 2 – The Abusers

Bullies, abusers, and victimizers make up the second category, which is just as large. The way they behave tends to be egocentric, constantly looking for someone else to criticize, abuse, and correct them. They are typically the ones with the ability to use force or power to compel others to bow down to their demands.

Category 3 – Impeccable Warriors

The third category, which makes up the group of warriors in this universe, is quite uncommon. These people work on themselves to break free from the cycle of abuse, whether they are the victim or the abuser. They see the world differently; they do not view it with guilt or blame, but rather with objectivity, without attributing their suffering to the outside world. They are at all times prepared to fight back, but they only do it in self-defense and never as an abuser would.

“Better being a warrior in the garden than a gardener in a war”

Karma’s Never Ending Loop

According to the Yin-Yang theory of duality, the abuser is Yang and the victim is Yin. They are complementary to one another.

A warrior strives to balance both of their internal sides after accepting them. Until the abuser chooses to become an impeccable warrior, they will always find themselves in a cycle of karma where they are the victim and vice versa. To evade the endless cycle of karma, one must first master self-awareness.

Inspiration from Children

I love human beings in their purest form, as children. They are filled with compassion, kindness, and an abundance of love and creativity. Unfortunately, kids grow up at some point in their lives. When it occurs, individuals pick up beliefs that distort their perspective. They often select one side of dualism because they are so overwhelmed by various unfortunate events.

Children are the most genuine warriors

Some children become adult assholes after being traumatized as youngsters. Others have a lifelong victim attitude because they are frightened to even respond to their traumas.
Thankfully, children—or at least some of them—still possess the ability for happiness, love, and compassion for other people.
Keeping this in mind, you could fall into the third category if you think you approach life in a childlike manner. A warrior sees the world through the eyes of a kid, full of compassion and love.

The Packman Metaphor

Remember Packman? A vintage computer game. I’ve often wondered why young people find that game enjoyable.
Do we really like to eat so much that we are compelled to play a game where the only goal is to swallow as much as possible? Recently, it occurred to me that Packman may be used as a metaphor to gain greater insight of the subconscious mind and how it assimilates information.

Packman – the hungry, greedy Pc Game Character

As we grow older, our subconscious mind absorbs and holds onto happenings. The problem is that storing distorts our memories because we do not process what happens to us in its entirety. We develop defense systems that function in the background. We must unlearn in order to really enjoy our new experiences in life; otherwise, we will inevitably compare them to our former ones. One is bound to compare a new lover to their previous ones. We compare each new food taste to those from the past. We get new clothes compared to the old ones.

An impeccable warrior will work on the self to ensure that Packman keeps fit and not accumulate heaviness. This is known in philosophy as “beginners’s mind approach” and is a simple practice to start every day with minimum expectations, without comparing with yesterday.

The Warrior Mentality

The ultimate objective of The Ki Train Method is to motivate you to adopt a warrior attitude, which essentially involves eliminating victim and victimizer mindset. It merely takes practice, even though it’s difficult to do. Though every nation trains for the Olympics, only few will make it past the qualifying rounds or even reach the medal podium.

The difference between a regular athlete and an Olympic one is the impeccable way of training.

All it takes to become a gold medalist in inner peace is a diligent daily practice done the correct way.

Three Warrior Hacks

Being a warrior is a mindset. The chances of being bullied exponentially decrease when one works on self-confidence. The best way to end this article is by sharing three hacks that a warrior can use to build up strength and confidence. I warn the reader that reading won’t be enough to gain the warrior’s wisdom. Practicing will make a difference.

Hack 1 – Practice the Power of Detachment

Relationships create energy links between people, which continue to exist in various states, even after the end of the relationship. Life provides us with lessons through different relationships, but sometimes we get stuck within the same lesson. For a humorous analogy, imagine you are in high school and still dealing with kindergarten lessons. The aim of this cultivation exercise is to improve your relationship experience, attracting mainly positive and higher vibration emotions from your connections. ­It is time to end past emotions related to different relationships we have had in our lifetime. You will write a detailed letter addressed to every person you have had a relationship with that involves emotions of guilt, sadness, disappointment, anger, resentment or any other negative emotion that is stuck within you, blocking the proper flow of Ki through your system. The letter must be handwritten (the process of writing by hand creates a mind-body connection that helps resurface past emotions).

More about this practice you can find in my book. I would be grateful if you get your copy on amazon here.

Hack 2 – Managing the Five Thieves

The senses are referred to as the Five Thieves in the ancient Qi Gong discipline. The five senses provide constant stimulation to the mind from the outside world. They are referred to be thieves because they steal our focus and leave little room for within self-communication. The use of technology and social media is a modern example. Simply observe those who are dining in the restaurant. They can no longer listen to their partners, family, or friends because they are absorbed in their phones.

When the mind is quieter, we will begin to hear – Rumi

Clearing the head is a must if we want to connect with intuition. Locking up the Thieves gives back the chances of regaining the ability to focus.

Hack 3 – The Recapitulation

During my work of warrior self-discovery I came across the work of Carlos Castaneda, which I consider to be one of the most valuable manuals of hacking the human powers. His work is based on living and learning from a shaman.

The Recapitulation is a technique that is described in the book, based on recalling and processing every single experience from birth till the present moment, with the intention of creating self-awareness and letting go of traumas created along the way.  Correlated with breathing and using neuroplasticity, the exercise is very simple by nature, but in the same time it can take months or even years, until all memories are unburied from the depths of the subconscious mind.
