Sometimes I read something and know it be shared! I am meeting more and more people who are taking up that inner sword that cuts through bull.
What are they listening to? Body and Soul! Propelled by necessity and desire they are taking up their power to clear the path that honors their spiritual intelligence. Many had hoped they would not have to “make their own way.” But dedication to soulful service and creativity is getting harder in many places. So…..
The deep sea of self keeps rising! The good news? The four powers you need may be Meekness, Perkiness, Outrageousness and Inscrutability. YAY! Rob Brezny says these are the Four Dignities of the Warrior’s Path. More than a brilliant astrologer, Rob’s an alchemist who can make words sneak around the corner of your mind and heart until they “GITHCHA!” Check out his excerpt from *PRONOIA IS THE ANTIDOTE FOR PARANOIA*
Four Dignities of the Warrior’s Path
In Tibetan Buddhism’s “Four Dignities of the Warrior’s Path,” courage and ferocity are absent. In fact, the qualities regarded as essential for being a
warrior have nothing in common with the training regimens of Marines or football players or lobbyists.
The first dignity is often translated in English as meekness, but that word doesn’t convey its full meaning. “Relaxed confidence” is a more precise
formulation — a humble feeling of being at home in one’s body.
Perkiness, or irrepressible joy, is the second dignity. To develop it, a warrior cultivates the habit of seeing the best in everything and works diligently to avoid the self_indulgence of cynicism.
The third is outrageousness. The warrior who embodies this dignity loves to experiment, is not addicted to strategies that have been successful in
the past, and has a passionate objectivity that’s free of the irrelevant emotions of hope and fear.
The fourth dignity is inscrutability, or a skill at evading the pigeonholes and simplistic definitions that might limit the warrior’s inventiveness while
fighting for his or her moral vision.
I use lots of support and tools to stay on my path. I could easily lose my humble perk and original outrageousness. In January I’ll share my tools in the 13 session Ruby Way Ensoulment Course: Things I have learned about dancing with my own authority and manifesting my offering to the world. Check it out. I wish someone had given me this info when I was in High School!
By the way my cynthiawinton-henry.com page is about to transform itself in the ever-evolving process of becoming the best front door to the Mystic Tech Hidden Monastery that I can manage. So if you can’t find me or my pages for a bit, just know that the genies and fairies are at work!
