The first and most vital tool of the spiritual warrior is awareness. The courage that makes for a good soldier also makes for a good Spiritual Warrior, but the intent becomes completely different. The Spiritual warrior has the courage to question challenge his or her own beliefs. To challenge our own beliefs requires courage because it means the end of our illusion of safety. The Spiritual Warrior faces this challenge with the clarity and awareness that this war is fought within him and that Truth and unconditional love are on the other side of these battles.
