A few more days and I will be at Warrior Camp Training somewhere in the "jungle" where we learn the basics of warfare, of survival and victory. Part of me can’t wait to go yet part of me wish I had a little more time for preparation.
The dictionary describes warrior as "a person engaged or experienced in warfare." It is also sometimes figuratively used to refer to "a person who shows or has shown great vigor, courage, or aggressiveness, as in politics or athletics."
Don’t get me wrong, I am a person who cherishes peace and quietness. Yet it is true that we need to be warriors, not just any warriors but skillful and mighty warriors as there much internal internal warfare going on within us every day, in many ways.
Don’t you sometimes feel that you are pulled in different directions within yourself? Emotionally you crave for somethings you don’t or can’t have, while logically you know that you would be wise not to indulge in that fantasy. Then there are times when part of you wants to do or be good while the other part of you is pulling you back. Part of you wants to go out of your comfort zone and expand, to go to the edge and grow yet part of you tries to prevent you from doing so in an attempt to protect you from "failure". You are at a standstill, wasting energy and time and not getting anyway!
Whether we like it or not, we are engaged in internal warfare everyday, with ourselves! We best learn to master the art and skills of winning the inner warfare and grow in our vigilance and courage or we will be losing battle ground every day. I am going for self development and training that will challenge me physically, mentally, logically and spiritually and I encourage you too to seek training that will prepare you to win the inner game for total success.
Arise, Warrior, it’s time to train! And here’s to Victory and Success!
