The Warrior In Today's Society.

I have been carrying this article around in my wallet since I first found it last June. I have, however, in my own copy regendered all the pronouns, so it refers to the woman warrior directly. If anyone would like a copy of that, please contact me - address on the sidebar -->

It shows, to a large degree, how I/we attempt to live my/our life/lives.

Warrior in Today’s Society
Jermaine Andre is a professional mixed martial artist, a great warrior and a righteous man. These are his words.

'To be a warrior in today's society is to be one of the unaccepted and misunderstood.

As a true warrior carries more concern and emotion than the average person, he must always suppress his feelings so that he will not die from sadness.This usually leads the judgmental into believing that the warrior is a man of no heart. A true warrior looks deeply into all things without limiting his mind inside of the borders of societies restrictions. He makes his judgments off of what he has learned through experience instead of what he is told to believe.

A code of honor is always established somewhere within a warrior's life. His honor is more important to him than life itself. He would rather be dead with honor than alive without it. Please understand that a warrior's honor is not to be confused with a fool's ego. A warrior of today must always keep himself disconnected from the gratifications that society allows. Material things and money are only that to him. He must always be prepared to die for what he believes in, so he must never fear leaving things behind.

They do not sway with the winning side if it is in the wrong. This would be dishonorable. A warrior knows of things that the domesticated doesn't because of his courage to seek and find at his own will. This always keeps him separate from the sheep who follow the manipulating shepherd.

He does not look for his honor through fame or what other people think of him.

Even if the world condemns what he is doing as wrong, he will keep doing it if he himself feels that it is right. He does not seek the approval of misled and misguided men. Only the approval of the Spirit that he has chosen as his leader.

To the warrior, his only fear of death, is to die a cowardly one. To die a good, warrior's death … is only a blessing from his Superior Spirit.

Death through life is what the warrior will seek … and life through death, is what he shall find.'

Sevadaars Note : From reading the above what is the difference between a GurSikh and a Modern Day Warrior : NOTHING!!
