A Calm Warrior is a Mindful Warrior

Warrior Wisdom 55

A calm warrior is a mindful warrior,

and a mindful warrior is a rational warrior.
Bohdi Sanders, Ph.D.

The word “peace” has several meanings. It does mean freedom from war, but for the warrior, a better definition is “mental calm.” Peace is a state of mental calm and serenity, with no anxiety. It is a state of harmony. You can have a feeling of peace no matter what situation you find yourself in. But it takes self-discipline and constant thought control. Just as you train your body to react in certain ways, you have to train your mind to be peaceful.

Peace is not the lack of war, but an inner virtue which has its source in the courage of the soul. Baruch Spinoza

Much of this book has been concerned with having a disciplined mind. The mind plays such a huge part in the life of the warrior. I have said several times that you have to have a disciplined mind, but how do you discipline your mind? The best way to discipline your mind is through meditation. Learn to meditate. A calm warrior is a mindful warrior, and a mindful warrior is a rational warrior.

The art of meditation is simple, but it does take practice to perfect. Start slow and learn to quiet your mind for several minutes. This is harder than it sounds. Thoughts will continue to disturb the silence, but with practice you will soon find that you can quiet your mind for longer periods of time. The practice of meditation is essential to your quest for warriorship. Bohdi Sanders ~ excerpt from award-winning book, WARRIOR WISDOM: Ageless Wisdom for the Modern Warrior
