Deep in the collective unconscious of humanity, and perhaps in its very heart, lies the desire to worship a revealing God who will disclose to believers everything they need to know for living a full and productive life. People all over this World, from all walks of life, are experiencing the intense desire to be filled by Spirit. We are being moved to become, in our own right, oracular voices for a Power greater than ourselves. What we are seeing, in all its various manifestations in contemporary American society, is what British scholar John Michell calls “the reenchantment of our nature”.
Moreover, we are living in a time when secret teachings are at last being made available to the general public. Perhaps today's thoughtful shamans and wisdom bearers feel that if they don't do something, we may not long endure. Or perhaps the elders have decided that, with advances in media and communication, the means are now available to get the message out. Shamans are talking, selectively, opening the vaults and archives of sacred wisdom to those outside tribal circles. You and your children are the beneficiaries of this new openness.
Free of anxiety, radically alone and unattached to outcomes, the Spiritual Warrior practices absolute trust in the struggle for awareness, and is constantly mindful that what matters is to have a true present. It takes a long time to grow in wisdom, to say nothing of the time it takes to learn to think well. Following the Warrior Way is not for everyone, although it is available to all who are willing to undergo its challenges. To embark on this path is to cultivate the Witness Self, the Watcher Within, the one who can profitably converse with the Runes.
