The warrior code is sacred and must be honored

I grew up learning from nature, it is a fate of al who are destined to become warrior monks in my tribe back then. It was scary being told about how people can be cruel than herd of hyenas. All animals brought us messages that will soon guide us when we grow up. In the wild everything had a meaning, all of them wise. At times everything that I was learning felt like a curse, for nothing will ever hurt you but people you trust and those you call family.

The warrior code is very strict and sometimes it can lead you living a lone life like of a leopard. Emotions and feelings are considered behavior of ego and weakness, we are only taught to live by our spirit and all the good it gives. And instead of being hurt or wronged we should consider them an insult and being disrespectful. Loyal, compassionate, respectful and disciplined are our highest of traits, if someone break this part of us then the only forgiveness we must give them is silence of an ended relationship. In this life we must protect the fragile part of us for it holds our life, sometimes protecting this part you may have to live your life alone like a monk.

The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. Each day I remind myself, there will be a few times in your life when all your instincts will tell you to do something, something that defies logic, upsets your plans, and may seem crazy to others. When that happens, you do it. Listen to your instincts and ignore everything else. Ignore logic, ignore the odds, ignore the complications, and just go for it.

No matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I have realized; it is during the times I am far outside my element that I experience myself the most. That I see and feel who I really am, the most! Life has no victims. There are no victims in this life. Warrior we believe no one has the right to point fingers at his/her past and blame it for what he/she is today. We do not have the right to point our finger at someone else and blame that person for how we treat others, today. Don’t hide in the corner, pointing fingers at your past. Don’t sit under the table, talking about someone who has hurt you. Instead, stand up and face your past. Face your fears. Face your pain. It is not easy to let go people you have known for so long, but a time comes where you must be honest with yourself and ask, do I really deserve the suffering they are causing me. Whatever your answer is, honor it by bringing it to the life you live. Remember, you must never become a victim to anything. Thats not noble life to live. Remember who you are, and the life you want.
