The 10 Tasks to Becoming a Spiritual Warrior

These 10 tasks are subject to change and revision, but for now they stand as a guide for one’s personal & spiritual development:

  • 1. A true spiritual warrior cultivates compassion and understanding from within, and practices these disciplines without, in everyday life.
  • 2. A true spiritual warrior reads holy texts, and is open to studying the holy scriptures of all the world’s religions.
  • 3. A true spiritual warrior understands there are enemies and obstacles trying to undermine the path to enlightenment.
  • 4. A true spiritual warrior practices the discipline of controlling one’s own mind, keeping the physical body healthy, and elevating the spirit.
  • 5. A true spiritual warrior practices the art of healing, through prayer, music and spreading healing vibrations throughout the air to greater distances, in an effort to heal others.
  • 6. A true spiritual warrior spends a greater amount of time in quiet solitude, honing his/her spiritual development through the 4 spiritual disciplines: Yoga, Private Study, Prayer and Contemplation.
  • 7. A true spiritual warrior is not enslaved by the five senses; and is not seduced by the addictions of the senses and illusions of material things.
  • 8. A true spiritual warrior is intent on the path to spiritual enlightenment and the divine realm; standing strong against the dark forces that can prevent his/her way.
  • 9. A true spiritual warrior practices compassion for all living sentient beings; feeling only sadness for enemies who have lost their way.
  • 10. A true spiritual warrior cultivates impartial love for all living beings within this great universe.

These are the 10 Tasks to Becoming a Spiritual Warrior
